  • Notes 
    • Bob Shiry - 1934-2005 - "He must have been a gardener who cared a lot. Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop. And we are so amazed! We're crippled and we're dazed … a gardener like that one, no one can replace." Elton John, Empty Garden. Some people are remembered for what they've said, others for what they've done. While Dad definitely had a way with words, it's his actions - the way he lived his life with such integrity and optimism and joy that we will remember most. Robert Earl Frank Shiry was a good man. He lived for seventy years. He worked for the K-W Record for 45 years but is life was with his family, a loving and caring husband, dad and papa. His passing has left us - his wife, Marcy; children, Brenda (Tim), Bobby (Angela), and Deb (Mike); grandchildren,, Brooklyn, Satchel, Kristin, Bryn, Dylan, Jazz, Wes - with heavy hearts, but even now the sadness at time, gives way to profound jo0y for having had lived our lives with such a strong, gentle, hopeful, happy wonderful man. - Peace - Please join us as we laugh and cry and remember Dad during visitation at the Edward R. Good Funeral Home, 171 King Street South, Waterloo on Thursday, April 21, 2005 (today) from 7-9 pm. A celebration of Bob's life will be held in the chapel of the funeral home on Friday, April 22 at 11 am with a reception to follow in the fireside reception room. Cremation and private family interment to follow at a later date. Donations in Bob's memory may be made to the Grand River Hospital Foundation or the Grand River Regional cancer Centre and can be arranged by calling the funeral home. - Note: Photo included with obit.
