Robert 'Bob' Farenick

June 16, 1937 — May 7, 2024

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bob Farenick, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and cherished friend.  Bob passed away peacefully at the Glengarda Hospice after a short battle with cancer.

He is survived by his loving wife Ruby of 65 years; children Laura (d.John), Derrick (Nancy), Marj (Dennis); grandchildren Tanner (Taryn), Justin and Tori; sister Florence (d. Nick), brother Rodney (Pam); nieces and nephews.  He is predeceased by his parents Victor and Leipa Farenick and brother Donnie.

Bob was born and raised on a farm near Arlee Sk.  He married Ruby in 1958 and they purchased a farm near Asquith Sk. In 1961.  Bob had a passion for farming, even with the hardships he endured.  Planting and harvesting the crops and tending to the cattle brought him great satisfaction and pride. 

In later years, Bob and Ruby spent many winters travelling on bus tours where they made many lifelong friends.  He also enjoyed fishing and golfing when he could fit it into his busy schedule.   When farm work became too difficult, Bob spent his time sitting on the deck enjoying the outdoors and meeting his friends on “coffee row” to solve the world’s problems in just a few short hours.

We would like to thank the staff at the RUH hospital and Glengarda Hospice for the care and comfort they provided Bob in his final days.

A Memorial Service will be held on May 21, 2024 at 1:00 p.m. at the Asquith Baptist Church in Asquith, Sk. with a private family interment taking place at the Asquith Cemetery.
