Robert Lillycrop

Obituary of Robert Walter Lillycrop

God looked around his garden and found an empty place,

He looked down on earth and saw your tired face,

He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest,

God’s garden must be beautiful he always takes the best.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Robert (Bob) Lillycrop in his 79th year on Sunday October 21st, 2018 at Sakura House with his family by his side.

Robert fought valiantly but finally succumbed to the vulnerabilities of Cancer.

Loving missed  by children Tracy Hernandez and Sheri Malandruccolo and their spouses Jim and Guiliano.

Proud grandfather to Jakob Benko and Alyssa Hernandez.

Cherished brother-in-law of Doreen Lillycrop, Jean Hutchison and Larry Bolger.

Missed by many nieces and nephews.

Predeceased by his wife Shirley Elizabeth (Bolger) Lillycrop of 50 years, brother Jack Lillycrop and Ted Lillycrop, brother-in-law Bill Hutchison and parents Irving & Janet Lillycrop.

The family would like to thank all the wonderful doctors, nurses, and support staff of Sakura House and the nurses from SouthWestLhin who visited Bob at home. They always treated Dad with love, dignity, and respect.

Cremation has taken place and in keeping with Bob’s wishes there will not be a funeral, however there will be a graveside service to inter his cremated remains at Brussels Cemetery on Saturday, October 27th at 11:30 a.m. to be followed by a reception at Brussels United Church. As an expression of sympathy and in lieu of flowers, memorial donations to Sakura House would be appreciated by the family.
