Robert “Bob” McRae

It is with great sadness that the family of Robert “Bob” McRae announce his sudden passing on Tuesday, May 21, 2002 at La Verendrye Hospital in Fort Frances, Ont.
Bob, born Dec. 17, 1956, was the only and favourite son of Verna Tkachyk.
He was a good-hearted and thoughtful man who was devoted to his family. His greatest achievement was maintaining his love in his role of son, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend.
He was an avid fisherman, who could always be found at Robin’s Donuts having coffee, sharing a “fish tale” or a story about his greatest love, “his grandkids.”
He is survived by his wife, Lynne-Marie; daughters, August (Jack) Tynan, Kristy (Bob) Brenna, and Holly; grandchildren, Kaid, Mickey, Austin, and Kayman; mother, Verna Tkachyk; and sisters, Sandy (Bob) Rhodenizer, Tina Marlene McBride, and Charmaine Saunders.
Also surviving are his mother and father-in-law, Carol and Joe Kliner; sister-in-law, Bonnie Kupila; and brother-in-law, Joel Kliner. Numerous nieces and nephews, and two great nieces, also survive.
He was predeceased by his step-father, Maurice Tkachyk, on May 15, 2002; and his infant nephew, Kyle McRae, on Oct. 22, 1983.
Visitation will be held Sunday, May 26, 2002 from 7 until 8 p.m. at Green Funeral Home in Fort Frances.
Funeral services will be held Monday, May 27, 2002 at 10 a.m. at Green Funeral Home in Fort Frances. Fr. Wayne McIntosh will officiate, with interment in Riverview Cemetery in Fort Frances.
Pallbearers will be his niece, Stephanie Francis, and his nephews, Aaron and Scott Grynol and Darrell and Riley McMahon.
Honourary pallbearers will be Bob Brenna, Horst Zuhlsdorf, Deder Kielczewski, and Eric Strom.
Should family and friends to desire, in memoriam donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 920 Frenette Ave., Fort Frances, Ont., P9A 3N4.
A man’s greatest accomplishments are measured by the number of people who love him. Forever in our hearts, we love you.
