Obituary of Robert Dawson

Obituary Text:

DAWSON, Robert JohnRobert John Dawson went peacefully to be with his Saviour on Friday, December 25, 2015 at the age of 68 years. He was predeceased by his father, Ben Dawson. Rob is survived by his mother, Iris; his loving wife and best friend Jacky; son Karl (Vivienne); daughter Paula (James); brother Roger (Carole); sister-in-law Christine; brother-in-law Ron (Jenny); and his "bestest buddy" grandson Danny. Rob emigrated from England to Regina in 1973 where he worked as a probation officer for over 25 years. After retiring, he began driving school bus in White City (which he described as "the best job ever") and he cherished every child who stepped onto his bus. It broke his heart when he was forced to give up his position due to his cancer diagnosis. His love for kids was also evident as he coached his grandson Danny''s soccer team for years. At registration time, many kids would ask to be placed on "Coach Rob''s team". Rob''s true love was his wife, Jacky. They were best friends and soul mates who did everything together during their 48 year marriage. Their favourite outing over the last few years became their weekly dates spent at Le Macaron which became their coffee place. Rob was respected and loved by all who knew him. His sense of humour, joy of life and deep Christian faith saw him through many struggles. He was a true gentleman and a man of great integrity who followed Christ''s example in all aspects of his life. The family would like to extend special thanks to Dr. Salim and his team at the Allan Blair Cancer Centre and to Dr. Johnson and the Palliative Care staff at the Pasqua Hospital. A MEMORIAL SERVICE will be held at St. Mary''s Anglican Church, 3337 15th Avenue, Regina, SK on Thursday, December 31, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Allan Blair Cancer Centre, 4101 Dewdney Ave., Regina, SK. S4T 7T1. Family and friends are invited to sign the online obituary and tributes page at Arrangements entrusted to
