Obituary of Robert Leonard "Bob" Agar
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Bob, our beloved husband, father and grandfather. He passed away on Monday, February 11, 2019 at the Greater Niagara General Hospital, at the age of 75. Beloved husband for 51 years of Jean. Loving dad of Heather and Jim. Special Grampie of Madison. Dear brother of Dave Agar Sr. Uncle Bob will be missed by Lisa and her children Jesse and Eliana, Dave Jr. (Merri-Lee), James Lessick, and also by many cousins and extended Agar and Merritt family members. He was predeceased by his parents Ruth and Paul Agar. Throughout Bob's life he dedicated many years working for Goodwill Industries in London, Arc Industries in Guelph and Mississauga, and Community Living of Niagara Falls. Later he worked for Casino Niagara for 12 years, retiring in 2008. Bob enjoyed slo-pitch in his younger years, but his favourite pastime was spent playing golf with Jean and with his good friend, the late Dave Kilty. Bob was known for his understanding ear, conversation, advice and his signature style of humour. We will remember him cheering on his baseball team, the Toronto Blue Jays, and listening to music, his favourites being; Rock and Roll and the Blues.
