Bob Richard Parsons

April 12, 1956 — May 7, 2024

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Robert (Bob) Parsons. Bob finished his journey surrounded by the loved ones that could be there. On May 7th 2024 at St. Paul’s hospital Bob left onto his next journey, at exactly 4:20 PM. Which leaves us smiling, because of course Bob would bring a fresh meaning to 420.

On April 12 1956, Reg and Elsie Parsons welcomed Bob into this world at St. Paul’s hospital. Bob resided in Saskatoon for most of his life, he grew up in Massey from a young age. Sports have always been his passion. To find Bob you could go to any rink or field in the community. He was so proud that his mom handmade and mended most of the sportswear back then in the area. Bob’s love for sports followed him throughout his life. Hockey, ball, reffing and coaching. Bob always knew how to keep team morale at its best.

You work hard, you play hard. Working hard was also a passion for Bob. Whatever the job concrete, sweeping, setting up camp, all the way to playing with his grandchildren. Bob did it with his all, making sure it was fun with laughter and always safety first!

“No job? No excuse! If you put on your work boots and a hard hat and go sit at the site, they’ll hire you eventually”. Bob lived by that. He worked construction and iron working for many years. He found his spot as a brother in the laborers union local 180, where he retired from in 2021.

As years went on he gained two granddaughters and four grandsons. Zaele, Silas and Liam (Garth) and Robert, Brody and Ivy (Jamie and Jamie Lewis). You could see the pride and sparkle in his eyes for his children and grandchildren at all times.

Bob was able to make everyone he met feel that they are important and matter. Bob left impression on every heart he met. Even if you only spent an hour or two with him, you remember and smile about Bob.

Laughter is the best medicine and a  smile is a gift that doesn’t cost anything.
