Obituary of Robert Lloyd Bovair

Robert “Bob” Bovair

January 14, 1954 – January 7, 2022

It is with great sadness that the family of Robert “Bob” Bovair announce his sudden passing on January 7, 2022, at his home in Prince Albert at the age of 67 years.

Bob was the second child born to Jim and Paula Bovair in North Battleford, SK and younger brother to Shirley.

He grew up in the Medstead – Robinhood area, going to school in Medstead. On leaving school he went into the job market working at various jobs until entering barber school. Once he completed his education, he started working in Prince Albert at Kens Barber Shop. He then proceeded to spend many years in the business, working with different people. He made many good customers and friends over the years.  Due to health issues, Bob was unable to continue working and so retired in September.

Bob was kind, loving and had a good sense of humour. He loved to tease and joke with the girls at work, laughing and enjoying the comradery. He enjoyed playing cribbage with long time friend and boss Cliff. He loved riding his motorcycle – taking his aunt for rides and doing trips with his friend Doug, and also enjoyed going for coffee with David and other friends.

He enjoyed travelling to Barbados, Thailand, and Norway. During the summer he golfed, went camping and fishing. He enjoyed sitting around the campfire relaxing.  He really enjoyed the golfing trips with his good friend Greg. 

Bob was a collector of hats and had many from different parts of the world. He enjoyed collecting John Deere tractors and things related to John Deere.

Bob was active in his church – his religion meant a lot to him. When he was a teenager, he played the organ and in his later years played the guitar in church in Prince Albert.

Bob had three nephews who thought the world of him and was so proud to be called “U Bob” as they lovingly referred to him. He will be greatly missed by these boys.

Bob is remembered by his loving family, his sister; Shirley (Dale) Bertsch of North Battleford, SK; his nephews, Brad (Anne-Margrete) and children Oliver and Jenny of Norway, Colin (Casey) and son Channing of Grand Prairie AB, Tyson (Ashley) and children Tayla and Benton of North Battleford, SK; his aunt, Margaret Bruns; cousin Randy and family, cousin Debbie; his uncle, Ernie (Jean), cousin Myles, Marlyce (JP) and children; his aunt, Lil (John) Urban, cousins Dawn Marie, Michelle (Mike) and children, cousins Mryna, Myra and family, and cousins Kathy (John) and family.  He was predeceased by his parents, Jim and Paula Bovair; grandparents, Bill and Edna Bovair and Gustav and Gretchen Bruns; Aunt Mary and Uncle Bill.
