Robert (Bob) William Stockell passed away on February 1, 2015 at the age of 76 at the Elk Valley Hospital with family by his side.
Bob was born in Magrath, AB on October 2, 1938. He resided in several places from Calgary to Vancouver and other places in between until residing in Kimberly, BC. Bob was a lover of music. He sang and played guitar, and was once a member of a small band in Kimberly before meeting his wife Aggie in 1999. They married in 2000 when Bob moved to Fernie. Here he opened the Fernie New & Used Exchange business, running that until he was too ill to manage. Bob enjoyed running his shop and rarely missed being open for business, even during his fight with cancer. He liked to socialize one on one with people, was a lover of vintage cars; mainly “Cadillacs”, and was always on the phone with either family or one of a great many friends. Bob will be greatly missed. Memories of him will be cherished within our hearts.
Bob is survived by his wife Agnes, three stepchildren: Teresa Voth, Richard Voth, and Ronda (Dale) Corrigan; 3 step grandchildren: Miranda and Danielle Corrigan, and Braydon Voth; his brothers: David Stockell, Jim (Hilda) Bailey, Doug Androsoff, and Terry Bailey, and sisters Sylvia (Ed) Turner, and Janice Androsoff as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Bob was predeceased by his mother Kavaleen, his father Mike, his son Michael Skinner, brothers Keith and Kenny, and his step grandson Michael Voth.
