WISEMAN, Robert - 1948-2022 - Robert Wiseman passed away surrounded by family on Monday, May 16, 2022. He was a Newfoundlander who built a life and home with his loving family in London, Ontario. He was a man of integrity and honour, serving his country with the Canadian Armed Forces and the Canadian Public Service. He brought his steadfast love and dedication to his 40 year marriage to Alison, who he married before the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve. He loved his children and in them he leaves a legacy of compassion. He is survived by his wife Alison, his sister Diane, his children Jonathan, Jason, Matthew, Carlene and James, his grandsons Nathan, Daniel, Ryan and Kyle. He was loved and will be dearly missed by his many nieces and nephews and extended family. Somewhere out there, he is playing a perfect game on the greenest golf course. A memorial service will be conducted at Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James Street at Richmond on Friday, May 20 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.

Alison & Family. I was so saddened to hear of Robert’s passing. We have so many wonderful memories of our young years in St. John’s & Harbour Grace. For the first two years of our lives, our families lived in the same house on Forest Road in St. John’s. We became fast friends and that continued till now. Ironically, his Dad was transferred to Harbour Grace in 1961, and then my Dad was also transferred there to work in 1962. We completed High School together and have continued to stay in touch with his trips back to Newfoundland and in recent years our regular chats. I will miss those. I will be thinking of you all as you go through this difficult time. May he Rest In Peace.

You and Bob were on my mind a few times in the last couple of weeks and I was wondering how you were.

Alison, I am so sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. My heart goes out to you and your family during this difficult time. One fond memory I have is when we did one of our school retreats at Pine Knot Golf & Country Club. I was very fortunate to have Bob in our golf group. We didn’t win but he definitely helped our overall score. It was a very fun afternoon. He was a pleasure to work with; and I can’t say enough to how much I loved working with both of you. Sending tons of hugs.

For Robert Wiseman
Bob and I were school mates and teammates and on one occasion roommates in a minor hockey tournament in the coldest part of Newfoundland.
Those were great early days in our youth.
I knew Bob moved away and had a family in Ontario - seems like you all had a great family life .
No surprise that Bob had a fine career he was top of his class in St Paul’s in Hr Grace.
Understand his recent years were difficult - many people can relate. .
I send sincere condolences to all of your family- especially Diane.
Bob is at rest and may that rest be in peace.
Godspeed my friend
