  • Notes 
    • Brydon, Robert Alexander

      Longtime resident of Grimsby and much loved member of Happy Hour at the condo where he lived, passed peacefully on Sunday, June 15, 2008 at West Lincoln Memorial Hospital, after a brief illness, in his 87th year. Loving husband of the late Florence Brydon (1997). Also dearly missed by sister-in-law Jean Brien and nieces and nephews Jo Ellen Brydon, Bill Brydon, William Goodward (Margaret) and Sharon Hyytiainen (Wally), who will miss their fun-loving uncle. Predeceased by his brother Arthur (1969). Bob was well-known in town for his larger-than-life jocular personality and his infinite kindness. After many years as a salesman of farm implements travelling in Ontario and Quebec, he was a constant source of stories and jokes, social comments and practical wisdom. Bob enjoyed nothing more than a few friends gathered around swapping yarns and the news of the day. Wherever he went, he ran into people he knew - even in the hospital, during his last days. Bob and Florence had an open door to friends and relatives, new and old, and Bob kept up the custom as much as possible after her death in l997. They enjoyed travels to Europe and Western Canada, and Bob`s yarns about Paris were memorable. Cremation has taken place. A private service will take place at a later date. If desired, expressions of sympathy to the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation would be sincerely appreciated by the family. Arrangements entrusted to STONEHOUSE-WHITCOMB Funeral Home, Grimsby (905-945-2755).
