June 6, 2017

It is with the greatest regret that the CORK Board of Directors forwards this notice of the passing of Bob Pritchard on June 3, 2017.

Bob was an important part of the CORK volunteer team both on and off the water for over 20 years. He was always willing to take on any task – small or large – anywhere he could make a difference.  He also served on the board for many years including as treasurer.

PRITCHARD, Robert James – May 11, 1942 – June 3, 2017 After a long struggle with Parkinson’s disease, Bob passed away peacefully in Kingston, Ontario, with his family by his side. A Deep River boy at heart, Bob’s love never waned for rugby, sailing, Queen’s, community service, family and sharing his knowledge on any subject. Bob was the son of the late James Edgar and Zebba Margaret Pritchard of Deep River, Ontario. He will be deeply missed by his devoted wife, Barbara Caldwell; his beloved sons William Thomas of Vancouver, B.C., Andrew James of Toronto and Nepal and their mother, Wendy Madore of Hackett’s Cove, N.S.; and his stepsons Skot Caldwell (Tammy) of Kingston and Douglas Caldwell (Ashley) of Orangeville, Ontario. Beloved Grandad to William Smith of Whitby; Abby and Harper Caldwell of Kingston; Robin, Nolan and Emily Caldwell of Orangeville. Sadly missed by his sister, Dr. Kathleen I. Pritchard of Toronto and her sons, James Alexander Gordon (Caitlin), Duncan Campbell Gordon of Florida and great-nephews Finlay, Jack, Ian and Henry of Port Hope, Ontario. Also remembered fondly by his many Pritchard cousins. Predeceased by his nephew William Fraser Gordon of Montreal. The family wishes to thank the staff at Rideaucrest Home and Kingston General Hospital for their compassionate care. A service and gathering will occur at The Donald Gordon Centre on June 18th, at 2:00 p.m. The family would particularly welcome written remembrances of Bob– by mail, at the reception or on the Robert J. Reid website. Sharing Memories online guestbook
