Obituary of Robert John Macdonald

Peacefully on Tuesday September 27th, 2022, at the Brockville General Hospital, Robert Macdonald of Rideau Ferry; loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother passed away at the age of 76.

Robbie was the loving husband and best friend of Karen, for over 55 years. He was the doting father of Scott (Laurie-Anne) and Jason (Teresa) and the cherished grandfather of Evan, Malcolm, Madison, and Hanna. He will be fondly remembered by his brother Gerry (Rae). Family and friends were very important to Robbie and played a large role in his life. He will be greatly missed and always remembered in their hearts.

Robbie attended the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario, before pursuing a long career with Revenue Canada. Robbie fell in love with Rideau Lake in the 60’s while visiting the family cottage, and eventually moved there full time with Karen. Robbie is remembered for his kind heart and willingness to help anyone. He was the life of the party with music and dancing and his laughter filled the room.

Friends are invited to join the family in celebrating Robbie’s life at the Blair & Son Family Reception Centre 15 Gore St. W. Perth, on Saturday, October 15th, 2022, from 2:00 - 5:00 PM. A sharing of memories will take place commencing at 3:00pm. In honour of Robbie, memorial contributions to the Alzheimer’s Society or any charity of your choice would be appreciated.
