Obituary of Jean-Paul Vital Robert
Passed peacefully on Sunday April 24, 2022 at the Smiths Falls Hospital at the age of 94. Jean-Paul leaves behind his beloved wife Aline of 67 years; his children Remi (Yvonne), and Monique; his grandchildren Haley (Marten), Ethan, and Alexandra; and his beautiful great-granddaughter Isla. Also left to mourn is his brother Jerome Robert (Lucille), his many nieces and nephews, and the numerous friends he made throughout his long life. Predeceased by his parents Alphonse and Meranda Robert, as well as his siblings Denise Toupin (Armand), Monique Allaire (Charles), Therese Pichette (Donatien), Solonge Fredette (Marcel), and Marcel Robert (Marthe).
With the love of his life, he put down roots in Smiths Falls in 1957, from St. Jerome, Quebec. Jean Paul Robert was a man of woodworking talent. His uncanny ability to guess a measurement down to the last 1/8” was a marvel. He built their house, and all the woodwork in it, from the trim to much of the furniture itself. His work for 40 years at Guildline Instruments put him in touch with many people and to this day, people on the street react fondly to the mention of his name. His dry sense of humor, his wit and ability to keep things light was his trademark. He will be dearly missed and cherished

Sobala, Brittany, Angelina, David, Arlene, and the staff at the Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital – Smiths Falls Site; as well as Alaina Kerr and the staff at Broadview Nursing Home for taking such care of both Jean-Paul and Aline.
