Death Notice

VENABLES, Bob (Robert):
Passed away peacefully at home after a short illness surrounded by family members on 15 January, aged 88. Dearly loved husband of Cindy Venables for 62 years and 5 days. Loved and cherished father of David, Michael, Philip, Caroline and Anne and respected father-in-law of Neil, Ann, Travis and Kath. Grandfather to biological and 'gifted' grandchildren and great-grandchildren: Dominique, Isaac, Rachel, Caitlin, Stephanie, Rebecca, Philip, Cat, Edward, Jesse, Sam, Xander, Archie and Evie. Bob will be missed greatly. He was a dedicated family man, and an easy conversationalist. He loved dogs, wearing caps, socks with sandals, jigsaw puzzles, an occasional cold beer, Liverpool FC, rugby and cricket – not necessarily in that order. He would describe himself as born in England, with Wales in his heart and a New Zealander by choice since 1961. We who will mourn him would add that he was both a gentleman and a gentle man. A service will be held at The North Harbour Chapel of Dil's Funeral Services, 185 Schnapper Rock Road, Albany on Wednesday 27 January.
