HANSON, Robert George

On Saturday, January 5, 2019, Bob passed away at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville.

He was the beloved husband of Gail, dear father of Jeff (Amber), loving stepfather of Peter and Andrea, cherished brother/brother-in-law of Rick (Susan), Susan (Jay Long), Brenda (Howard Jarvis) and Nancy Weber. Bob was devoted to his grandchildren, Finn, Levi and Reid, and keenly interested in the lives of his nieces, nephews and their children. He enjoyed sharing many activities with his family including travelling with Gail across Canada, especially to the west coast, fine dining, culinary adventures in the kitchen, Hanson family golf tournaments and hosting parties around the pool. "Doctor Bob" worked as a psychologist for the Durham District School Board until his retirement. A strong advocate for children with special needs and mental health challenges, his enthusiastic effort on their behalf continues to have a positive impact on many families. Bob's wonderful sense of humour, his generosity, compassion and unconditional support for others will be greatly missed. Donations to the Hospital for Sick Children would be much appreciated.

Such a loss. Bob was a true gentleman, kind and caring, and very funny. Vi Mann and I had the privilege of sitting with Bob at the last Sinclair luncheon that we attended. We had a chance to catch up with each other and Bob mentioned that he was having memory problems. And like he always did, he didn’t go into detail to garner sympathy. I am so sorry for your loss, Gail and family. You will miss him, as will we all. Christina Heinze

It is with great sadness to hear of the passing of Dr Bob. I worked with him at a few schools in Durham- he certainly had the true interest of the many students he worked with. A great man and personable person. A true loss to his family- keep the happy memories close at the times the feelings of loss enter your thoughts. My sincerest condolences. Dawne Duckworth - Retired Admin.
