Obituary Text:

TESSIER, Robert Achille1927 - 2016We announce the passing of our much loved husband, father, grandpa and great-grandpa, Bob Tessier on Friday November 18, 2016 in Victoria, BC. Dad was born February 17, 1927 in Crichton, Saskatchewan. Dad first came to Victoria when he served his country in the army as an engineer with the Royal Canadian Engineers. He dedicated his working life to the Saskatchewan Power Corporation, working his way from lineman to Director of Operations over a 35 year career. Through hard work and perseverance, he furthered his training at the Banff School of Advanced Management (1966) and became a fellow of the Canadian Institute of Managers (1974). Shortly after retiring from Sask Power, Dad formed his own company, where he consulted and subsequently reduced the power factor for large corporations. Dad''s zest for life always included family and friends. Although Mom and Dad were fortunate to have travelled the world, their favourite place was the cabin at Waskesiu Lake, Saskatchewan. Dad enjoyed fishing, golfing, bridge, cribbage, skiing, dancing and most of all, fulfilling his life-long dream of obtaining his pilot''s license and flying his own plane at the age of 55. Dad is survived by the love of his life, Shirley. On July 1, 2016, they celebrated 66 years of marriage. Dad is also survived by his children, Terry, Denise (Don), Deborah, D''Arcy, Todd, Danielle (Mark); his grandchildren, Jennifer (Dale), Ashley (Burton), Tiffany, Tera, Jeffrey (Meaghan), Lauren (Darcy), Jessica (Brad), Erin, Michael, Daniel, Nathan, Alexandra; and great- grandchildren, Aiden, Amelia, Linden, Maddex, Emery, Alexa, Lucas, Natalie, Dexter and Nyxon. Dad was predeceased by his parents, Corinne and Alfred Tessier; siblings, Claire McCallion, Tess Noll, Gerard Tessier; and his infant children, Rodney and Dana. He is survived by his brother, Roger Tessier (Rosemary). Dad''s optimism and joy for life were among his finest qualities. His legacy will live on in all those who knew and loved him. His family was his greatest accomplishment and he never let us forget it. We would like to thank Dr. Kennedy and Dr. Naaykens, as well as the caring staff at Shannon Oaks and Sunrise Senior Living. We also wish to thank Kathy Dabrus for her many years of love and support. Funeral services will be held Thursday, November 24, 2 p.m. at St. Elizabeth''s Church in Sidney, BC. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation ( Dad always chose the sunny side of the street and we loved being there with him. Cheers to you, Dad! Condolences may be offered to the family at Gardens of Victoria, BC(1-800-870-4210)
