Please share a memory of Robert to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.


September 6, 1931 - March 2, 2024

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved father, Robert Marshall, best known as 'Pops'.

Predeceased by his wife Darlene, Parents, Helen & Jack, brother Bill, sister Elsie, and niece Cheryl. 

Missed by his daughters, Shelly (Jacques), Coreen (Gary), and Noreen (John), his Numerous Grandchildren along with his  Nieces, Cindy, and Lisa & Nephew, Richard.  

 In 1969, Pops moved to Canal Flats from Elko to continue his work with the forestry then later moving over to Crestbrook Forest Industries until retirement in 1996.

In 1975, Pops married Darlene, a young widow with three daughters. There was never a dull moment and Pops wouldn't have had it, any other way.  He loved family life and all the surprises that came with it.

Travel was always a love Mom & Pops shared. Every spring they would head south.  Sometimes with friends or just by themselves.  Pops was a very active and respected man within his community.  Pops loved his garden and grew beautiful veggies which he so kindly shared with family and neighbours. He loved and followed all sports and especially enjoyed the C.F. Curling League.

In later years when Pops became a grandfather, he took a special interest in fishing with his grandsons and loved following their many baseball and hockey games. 

Pops was a very kind and generous man and will always be remembered for his subtle and unselfish way he did for and gave to others. 

The family would like to send a special 'Thank You' to our doctors & staff at the Invermere & District Hospital with  

Special Thanks to Dr. Schaffer.

Last but not least, the Columbia Garden Village for your care and professionalism given.  Pops felt very blessed living his last years so comfortably and actively with all of you.   

   As per Pop's request, there will be no service.  His family will gather to hold a small family celebration at a later date.
