With heavy hearts of grief we announce the passing of our husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend Robert (Bob) Platt on February 10, 2022.
Bob is lovingly remembered by his wife of 36 Years Sherry (nee Jarmuske); his two sons Corey (Laura) and Cameron; along with three Grandchildren Avery, Sage and Ashton. He is also survived by his sister Cathy (Jamie) and brother Brian (Anita).
Bob was predeceased by his parents Charles and Jean; brother William (Bill); parents-in-law Albert and Agnes Jarmuske; and brothers-in-law Norman Jarmuske and Glen Morash.
Bob was Sherry’s Rock and Soulmate, whether taking the wheel on epic distance road trips or flying to sunny destinations, he was her protector and perfect companion. Sherry is heartbroken to have him taken away. She knows he’s gone in body but he will be in her heart forever.
He will be missed by all his family, friends, previous co-workers, classic car guys and the West St. Paul community he called home for many years. A special thanks to the West St Paul Fire Department, that he was so proud to be a part of, for honouring Bob's many years of service and everyone who had the privilege of knowing him and whose lives he impacted greatly.
Thank-You to Family and Friends who were there to support and make each day less difficult. Also Thank-You to the many Dr’s and Staff that assisted in Bob’s care. Special Thanks to Dr Gingerich and nurse Crazy Cheryl from CancerCare and Palliative Care Co-Ordinator Lori and all the visiting nurses, especially Kija, also another big thank-You to Steph at WCB.
Everyone’s support and kindness meant the World to Bob. He fought strong and hard until the end.
Dad, you are my hero, my mentor and my best friend. You will be remembered and forever admired for your dedication to family, your work ethic, and your values. I will miss your daily words of wisdom, advice and guidance. I am the man I am today because of you. I Love you beyond forever. Corey
Dad was my hero, my best friend, the man I looked up to more than anyone else in the world. He was always there for me whenever I needed him. Whether it was giving me advice on how to fix even the smallest things or our many chats about work, life or anything else, I knew that Dad was always there to support me. Dad helped shape me into the man I am today, and even though he's gone I know he'll always be watching over me. I Love You Dad. Cameron
In accordance with Bob's wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no Service. A come and go Celebration of life is planned for Summer of 2022.
All those whose lives were touched in some way by Bob are invited to share condolences or messages of their memories.
