Robert William Farness

It is with great sadness that we, the family of Robert William Farness, announce the sudden passing of our beloved brother at the age of 67 on April 7, 2014 in Quesnel B.C.

Bobby was born in Calgary, Alberta on May 3, 1946, growing up in Sidmouth, B.C. and Revekstoke. He then spent many years of his adult life in Prince George. Predeceased by parents William and Margaret Farness and infant brother Derek. Bobby has left an empty void in the lives of his three sisters; Gloria (Roy) Abbot of Revelstoke, Valerie Farness, his twin sister, of Victoria B.C., Christine (Jim) Fedyniak of Star, Alberta; his younger brother David Farness of Vernon and many nieces and nephews.

Bobby was a loving and hard working man who experienced many joys and trials throughout his life, building his large log home from scratch, working as an electrician, operating his own logging truck and running his own businesses, Little Village Blacksmithing and Bob’s Tidy Village. He loved horses but his pride and joy were his two Golden Labradors, Molly and Duke.

A celebration of life was held on April 23 in Quesnel. A graveside service will be held in Revelstoke at the end of July. Cremation has taken place.
