Bob Boileau

April 16, 1950 – January 21, 2022
Bob passed peacefully at the home he loved in Halfmoon Bay. His beloved wife Rosalie, daughter Michelle (Exner), son Robert, son-in-law Jason, and daughter-in-law Karen formed a circle of strength that enveloped him in love.
He left five beautiful grandchildren, Alec Boileau, Evan Boileau, Wesley Stone, Marenda Stone, and Kaiden Exner with lifelong memories and lessons.
Leading by example he taught us how to live, laugh, love, and be passionate about everything we did. He believed in a good day of work and could outdo the best of them.
Kind, generous, and humble, he loved to travel and immerse himself in other cultures. He was a humanitarian who travelled twice to Malawi to drill wells in villages without water. His generous and caring nature took him to Guatemala on a Habitat for Humanity build. He donated his time doing electrical work with Habitat Sunshine Coast as well as the Egmont Firehall.
Well-loved and respected by everyone who ever met him, many have shared little stories of personal experiences with Bob that changed the path of their lives.
He loved nature and the outdoors. At the age of 68, he hiked the West Coast Trail with his daughter. He loved fishing for salmon with his son. Nothing made him happier than cooking oysters on the half-shell over an open beach fire and sharing them with friends and family, especially his grandchildren.
Bob and Rosalie would spend winters scuba diving in Roatan, Honduras and summers cruising the coast in their 40′ Bayliner the Salva Vida.
Bob will be dearly missed by many in all four corners of the world. He left the world a better place.
We will love you forever Papa.
In lieu of flowers, donations to projectwellness.ca, The Canadian Cancer Society, or Habitat for Humanity Sunshine Coast, would be sincerely appreciated.Obituary
