MAGLOUGHLEN, Robert (Bob) Bob Magloughlen passed away suddenly on March 6, 2014 at the age of 70. He was a truly beloved husband, father, grandpa, uncle, friend and mentor. Missing him deeply are his loving wife Rosemary, his daughters Robin (Michael) and Karen (Chris) and his grandchildren of whom he was so proud. A bright, shining light to his family and many friends, 'Mr. Bob' commanded a room and demanded attention. He was a great teller of jokes, which were always followed by his infectious laugh, making sure you couldn't help but join in. A successful and respected businessman (with significant stops at Mack, Cummins, Western Star, and Volvo before forging out on his own), he built his career on hard work and a degree from the school of hard knocks. Bob was a champion for many, and he was generous with his time and experience. Fishing, golf, reading, travel and debating (business, politics, religion, you name it) rounded out his very full life. Above all, though, was his unwavering belief in his family and a drive to see them succeed. To help us celebrate this great man who made a difference to so many, we will be holding a celebration in Bob's honour at the Deer Ridge Golf Club on Sunday, April 13th from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. ~ 200 Deer Ridge Drive in Kitchener just North of the 401 off Highway 8. During the celebration, a light lunch and refreshments will be served. In lieu of flowers please bring a joke (the dirtier the better) and memories to share.
