After a sudden battle with pancreatic cancer, Robert (Bob) Hudspith passed quietly away, with his family at his side at Peterborough Regional Hospital.
When Bob and his wife Barb, decided to move to Haliburton 3 years ago he was able to fulfill a lifetime goal of designing his own home and constructing it with the help of family and friends. Bob always loved the outdoors and truly felt at home in the Highlands where he could explore new trails and waterways. Having placed his own home a short distance from a pond he joined his neighbors in working to make it a safe and enjoyable place for swimming, paddling and fishing for both adults and kids. Always keen to help build, fix and care for the environment, Bob was thrilled to be a part of Haliburton’s first “repair café.”
Bob, will be deeply missed by his wife Barbara (of 52 years), daughter Heidi and her husband, Nick Elliot, and their two boys Corbin and Noah, And in Toronto, his son Jeremy, wife Stephani and their children Eli, Fiona and Sarah.
The family would like to extend their thanks to the wonderful doctors and nurses of the Palliative Care ward at PRHC, for providing such compassionate care day and night.
