Robert “Bob” Cornish

CORNISH, Robert “Bob” James…

Bob passed away peacefully at the age of 71 on Thursday, July 18, 2019 surrounded by his loving family and his furry friends. Loving husband of Nancy (nee Kollman), cherished dad to daughter Debbie Latino (Rob), son Michael and beloved Grandpa to Kyle. Remembered fondly by the mother of his children Marylee (Scott) Maahs, sister Linda Jackson of Timmins, Janis Turner (Ken), Joanne Lariviere (Jerry) both of London, sister-in-laws Beth Gordon (Bill) of New Zealand, Cathy Hazen (Bill) of Stratford and Joyce Gallant (Andrew) of London. Remembered by nieces and nephews Will, Laura, Sara and Luke.

Bob was a plumber pipe fitter and took great pride in his work. Long time member of US Local 527. He was an avid fan of NASCAR, the New York Yankees and the Boston Bruins. His hobby in his retirement was his pride and joy, a 1967 Chevelle SS 427. Bob could always be heard coming home! Summer weekends were spent going to car shows. He was able to go to the last Fleetwood Country Cruize In on June 1, 2019, which was his main goal.

Special thank you to Dr. R. Martin for his care over the years, Dr. Sanatani and Dr. Laba at the cancer clinic and Meghan and Angela from ParaMed, who went out of their way to make sure Bob was comfortable in his final days.
