Robert (Bob) Davis

Peacefully on Sunday, June 12, 2022, at his residence in Selkirk, Manitoba, Robert (Bob) Davis, aged 79, passed away.

Bob will be sadly missed by his loving family, wife, Helene; son, Stephen; daughter, Suzanne (Neill); and his grandchildren, Sarah and Laura. He also leaves behind many extended family members, brothers, Richard (Cathy) and Jim (Ellen); brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, John (Sandi); Dale; Barbara (Ken); Marion; Carol (Jock); Christina (Bill); Leslie; Lisa and many nieces and nephews in the U.S.A and Canada as well as cousins in England.

Bob grew up in Middlesbrough, England. Arriving in Canada in 1960, Bob settled in Selkirk, where he soon met his wife, Helene. Bob’s independent and entrepreneurial spirit compelled him to create his sign company, Robroy Signs. Bob honed his skills for the next 44 years to become a true “Letterhead” signmaker professional. Many of Bob’s sign creations are displayed in the City of Winnipeg and the surrounding areas.

Most will remember Bob for his sharp wit, dry humour and love for his family. So much so that he passed on his 57th wedding anniversary.

Over many years, Bob volunteered his time and talent making signs for many community organizations. In keeping with his helping spirit, please donate in his memory to either Selkirk and District Community Foundation, St. Georges or St. Clements Church.

Special thank you to John and Suzanne for their help and dedication seeing to Bob’s care. We are grateful to family and friends for their love and support.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, June 22, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. in the St. Georges Anglican Church, Clandeboye, MB (Wakefield), with interment and lunch in the St. Clements Cemetery and Hall, St. Andrews, MB (Mapleton)
