Born in Vancouver, B.C on September 13, 1944, Bob was a man of great intelligence and talent. A lifelong resident of the North Shore Bob was a talented musician, a competent pilot and a competitive race car driver with an encyclopedic knowledge of cars. His lifelong love of fine automobiles was not only one of his many professions but his great passion.
Bob was at work in the last few years on the definitive book on Porsche Spyders, a project that will be soon published. Bob’s commitment to the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous brought him great comfort and his involvement in the program allows Bob to live on through others. He was a true friend to many and valued greatly his life long friendships.
Bob is survived by his son Desmond Quinn, brother Edward and sister Carol, Quinn’s mother and dear friend Diana, Aunt Doris, niece Rhea, nephew Devon, his cousins as well as many dear friends. We will miss Bob and his infectious smile, charm and keen sense of humor as well as his passionate search for knowledge and the meaning of life.
A special thank you to everyone on 7 West at Lions Gate Hospital and Dr. Paul Sugar and Dr. Vim Hofmeyer, who took such good care of him.
There will be a celebration of Bob’s life in May in North Vancouver. To correspond with his family and to be notified of the memorial, please email: BobLeFlufy@leflufy.com. We ask that donations be made in his name to the www.bccancerfoundation.com or the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation, Palliative Care Program.
