Robert "Bob" Frederick Bailey

1948 - 2021


Bob passed away quietly, at 73 years of age, at home in Port McNicoll, on July 12th, 2021.

Born, Robert Frederick Bailey, to Mary (Woodbyrne) & Fred, Bob was the second eldest of 5 Bailey children. Shirley (Davidson), Michael, Kevin & Jim. A proud uncle to numerous nieces and nephews who loved him.

Continuing the Bailey family tradition of working on the railroad, Bob was a proud hogger for CN & Via Rail for many years where he made many life long friends and where he met the love of his life, Susan.

Bob was married to Susan (Laplante), who passed away on January 20th, 2021. Bob was devastated & heartbroken when he lost Susan.

Pre-deceased by his son Rob, Bob was a proud grandfather to Robbie Jr. (Kaitlyn) and adored his great grandson, Colton.

Happiest when surrounded by family and friends, Bob enjoyed raising a glass of his favourite beverage, Alexander Keith’s (AK’s) and talking about old times.

Thanks to all the neighbours and friends who were always looking in on Bob, driving him to appointments, walking his beloved dog Bear and just spending time chatting with him on the front porch.

Susan & Bob are back together now & forever.

We will all miss you Bob! Cheers.

Very saddened to hear about Bob's passing today.. I'll always remember and be grateful for the train trip to Montreal he took me on, the emergency event on the way down and the feast on the way back the next day.. A great guy and fun to be around for sure.. Condolences to Jim, Kevin and the rest of the Bailey family.. Rest in Peace Bob.

We are very sorry to hear about Bob’s passing—he truly was one of the good guys.
Taking a cue from Ken Haslan’s tribute, we originally met Bob as part of “the gang” who hung around the Queensway Park area and The Royal Restaurant in our teens. I was the maid of honour at Bob’s first wedding, and I was godmother and “Auntie Val” to Rob who tragically passed away 5 years ago in July 2016. My family and I regret that we all lost touch.
We will remember Bob as that tall, handsome, smiling yet sometimes shy guy from all those years past when life was much different than today.
With sincere sympathy to the Bailey Family. Your heartfelt Memoriam reflects the very happy life Bob lived with his wife Susan, his family, friends and neighbours, his love for his grandchildren, as well as how much Bob will be missed.

Bob and I go back to St Louis school off the Queensway in Toronto. We made our confirmation together and were chastised by the Bishop for laughing through the ceremony. I was his best man at his first marriage and was Godfather to his son Rob..
So sad to here of his passing as he was a large part of all the people who knew him down here.
My Deepest Condolences .
Ken Haslan
