ROBERT "BOB" CLOUTIER
July 12, 1946 – January 6, 2020
“Bob”, 73, passed away peacefully on January 6, 2020.
Bob was an avid Bombers fan his entire life; he was ecstatic with the 2019 Grey Cup victory, he attended Bomber breakfasts and for one season he was even Captain Blue!
Bob was a life-long entertainer; he was ‘Harry’ in tv commercials, he loved to make people laugh at Murder Mysteries, he impersonated Elvis and Oliver Hardy, he would have been a Beatles tribute band all by himself if he could have, he performed as a member of a ‘Bunch of Grapes’ for four decades, he enjoyed playing Santa Claus and he was the voice of Tookie at Club Regent.
He loved sharing facts about historical figures, he spent hours reading books and sitting at the computer learning about historical events. He was extremely proud that Zachary Cloutier was his ancestor who settled in Quebec in 1634.
Bob liked to surprise the family at Christmas by handing out silly gifts like Rudolf antlers or blinking red noses for everyone to wear. No family gathering will ever be the same for Roger, Ron, Ray, Esther, Joel, Arla, Zoey and Marc without his practical jokes and witticisms.
Thanks to Home Care for providing personal care for many years and the medical staffs at St Boniface Hospital and Health Science Center for their compassion during this stressful time, thank you.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Canadian Foundation for AIDS research.
A celebration of Bob’s life will take place at a later date.
