Bob Watson passed away at age 70 on Tuesday, January 19th, 2021, after a very courageous two year battle with cancer. He passed peacefully at home surrounded by his kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. Bob’s greatest joy and fulfillment in life was his role as husband, dad and papa. He led a close, loving and loyal family. He showed us the importance of putting others first, how far a listening ear or helping hand can really go, and how a simple smile can often brighten even the gloomiest of days. He always put others first and was happiest when the whole gang gathered for any occasion!
As Manager of Atlas Steels Credit Union, and eventually CEO of PenFinancial Credit Union, Bob will be remembered for his indomitable spirit, compassion and dedication to his local community. A rare gem in the business world, he was respected and loved by many. When you met Bob, he left a lasting impression. If it was at a business meeting or on the golf course, his warm smile, sense of humour, and interest in you made him a person you truly enjoyed being with.
Known as Wobbly to his friends, Bob was fortunate to have shared life’s adventures with many longtime buddies who have certainly become a chosen second family. It was these bonds and friendships where Bob learned to embrace and embody the joys of remaining eternally young at heart.
The family know that Bob touched the lives of so many and his greatest wish was that we remember him for the joy, laughter and good times shared. He will continue to live on through our stories and memories of him. The family has asked if you could share and any photos and bestowed nicknames at www.cudneyfuneralhome.com.
