Almonte, ON

Bone, Robert Cecil July 4, 1940 – February 5, 2024 Peacefully, in his 83rd year, at Fairview Manor in Almonte, Ontario. Predeceased by his parents Cecil and Edna and brother Jim. To be forever missed by his loving partner Eugene Williams, children Ian (Bree) and Allison, former spouse Betty Jean, niece Donna, and extended family and friends. Born and raised in Winnipeg, Rob enlisted with the Royal Canadian Air Force at the age of nineteen and spent several years stationed in Europe. Upon returning to Canada, he earned his degree from the University of Winnipeg before relocating with Betty Jean to Ottawa, where they began their family, and he began his career with the Government of Canada. Well known for his ability to build or fix anything, and his love of classic cars, Rob was a charismatic contributor to any gathering. He cherished designing and building the family cottage at Pike Lake and spent many happy days with tools in his hands, in the boat on the lake, and taking in evening sunsets with family and friends. Rob's love of music was evident in his ability to play any tune on the piano from memory and in his penchant for singing his heart out whenever the opportunity arose. We express our heartfelt gratitude to the staff at Fairview Manor for their compassionate and devoted care during Rob’s final year. Should you wish to honor his memory, contributions to the Almonte General Hospital – Fairview Manor Foundation would be deeply appreciated. In accordance with Rob’s wishes, cremation has been carried out, and a celebration of life will take place at a later date. We imagine him now at peace, with the car top down, listening to his favorite tunes on the radio while driving along an open road. With love, we bid farewell and wish him safe travels.

HINTON, Jack (John Holling Hinton) Died on December 29th 2023……not from too much chocolate, Jack had Alzheimer’s. He was living in Fairview Manor and would have been eighty nine in a couple of weeks. We are all so saddened by this loss: Glennis, his loving partner of thirty years, daughters Debbie (Wayne Spinks) Donna (Al Findlay) grandchildren Crystal, Stacey (Adam Crosbie) Kaden, Mitchell (Allie Carroll) and Karly (Seth Houghton).

Jack was pre-deceased by his parents John and Anne (nee Holling) Hinton, sister Betty Neill, brother-in-law Ron Neill, daughter Jennifer, grand daughter Nichole and two ex wives, Helen and Bonny. Jack’s work took him to the High Arctic, Bermuda, California, and most recently to Almonte General Hospital-Fairview Manor where he was Chief Engineer. He was an animal lover, auto mechanic, biker, organic farmer, traveller, toker, avid reader, lover of the Blues, crazy dancer, canoe builder and the kindest and most gentle soul you could ever meet. Sincere thanks go to the doctors and staff at Fairview Manor who made Jack’s final months so safe, secure and wonderful. We could not have asked for better care. Jack generously donated his remains to Ottawa University for medical research. Arrangements were entrusted to the care of C.R.Gamble Home and Chapel Inc., (127 Church Street, Almonte, Ontario). Condolences and tributes: www.crgamble.com.
