April 28, 1943 – July 5, 2021
at the age of 78 years:
Robert Martin Noros passed away with his family by his side at Royal Inland Hospital, Kamloops, on Monday, July 5, 2021 at the age of 78 years.
Robert was born in Lulu Island (Ladner) on April 28, 1943 to Bjarne and Margaret Noros (nee Husband). He lived in Ladner for several years where he enjoyed working with cars. In recent years he rebuilt a 1952 Chevy Truck.
Bob lived and worked in Maple Ridge, BC and Renwar, MB. On returning to Maple Ridge, he married Maureen Hartfiel (nee Kergan) in 1993. Bob moved to Anglemont, BC to build a house for him and Mo. He also supervised and worked on building a house for his sister-in-law Marlene. Bob enjoyed gardening, canning, cooking, baking and many friends and neighbors received a loaf of his bread. His vegetable garden is being tended by Mo with loving care. Bob enjoyed his quad, would add a trailer to go into the woods near home to cut up logs for heat, go up the mountain with a group or down the road to visit friends. Bob built furniture and additions to the house. He would take a slab of good wood and carve Loonie banks, woodpecker door knockers, Loon and Wolf napkin holders and Wolf figures and latest was bark skull masks – a truly great artist. If anyone needed a tool or help Bob was there for them. For several years Bob volunteered with the North Shuswap Lions at their barbeques and Children’s Christmas Party.
Robert was predeceased by his parents, son-in-law Richard Adams, brother-in-law Brian Carney and nephew Sean Carney.
Robert is survived by his loving wife Maureen, daughters Kathy Standryk (Gordon Lee), Lori Noros-Adams (Rick Galuschuk), stepdaughters Leanne Hartfiel (Jay Cunningham) and Robyn Rieger (Mark), grandchildren William and Michael Standryk, Tanner and TJ Cunningham, Devin and Madison Rieger, great grandchildren Chloe and Lincoln Standryk, his sisters Yvonne Berquist, Donna Carney, Sandra Elliot, sister-in-law Marlene Kergan, numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
The family appreciate and sincerely thank Dr. VanWyck and the palliative care team on 5 South for their loving care and support.
We love you Robert. There will be a family gathering at a later date.
Very nice Mo. He will be terribly missed. You’ll always be family to us. Love you. Lori and Rick
We will miss his sense of humour and bartering on…well lets say everything he bought…lol
He was never going to give up on what he loved to do. Some of his adventures in the bush were a little scarry.
I am sure he had Mo on her toes all the time
We will miss you Bob
Heartfelt sympathy goes out to you.
I can still hear his constant chatter, when we played crib. Sometimes it drove me crazy, but now I wish I could hear him one more time.
Who would have thought that we wouldn’t see him again.
In our hears and Remembering him.
Stay strong, my friend
Maureen and Marlene, this was a wonderful write up for Robert. You did him proud.
