Bob Heighway

Death Notice

HEIGHWAY, Robert “Bob” “Reg” - Passed away peacefully on June 28, 2021 at Victoria Hospital, Robert “Bob” “Reg” Heighway of London, age 83.

Bob is survived by his wife of 54 years Mary Jane “Midge” (nee Thompson); his children, Tom (Jill) and Sara (Chris Baillie) and his grandchildren Annika, Campbell, Liam and Jacob.

Bob was born in Arva to Reginald and Jennie (nee Auty). Bob is predeceased by his older siblings; Don, Bruce and Mary Jane Winterton.

Bob attended South C.I. and was a gifted athlete and football star. Bob continued his studies in Engineering at the Haileybury School of Mines, followed by a career which was highlighted by over 20 years at General Motors.

He was a devoted husband and father who loved spending time with his family both here in London and in Halifax, NS, especially with his grandchildren. Bob lived a full and active life filled with cherished friendships both new and old. Bob was always generous with a joke, time for a story or a chat, fixing what might be broken or a libation.

Bob had a kind word to say to everyone whether that be a coworker, a neighbour, a friend, or a stranger and everyone in between.

A private family service will be held at Harris Funeral Home and after restrictions ease, we hope to be joined by family and friends for a celebration of Bob’s life.

In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation on Bob’s behalf to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Easter Seals.

Bob will always live on in the hearts and minds of his loving family and friends.
