Robert Spracklin Death, Obituary – A very exceptional man adored by many, family meant everything. Bob’s death was unexpected and occurred on February 2, 2023, when he was 76 years old. In the city of Toronto, Ontario, on the 11th of December in 1947, he was born to his parents, Bob and Pauline Spracklin. He will be missed by his sister Lynda Spracklin. When he was younger, he helped out on the farm that belonged to his Uncle Frank and Aunt Kay.
On Saturday they would sell the crops in the St. Lawrence Market in Toronto. Even when Bob began his career with the TTC, he maintained his employment at the local farm and market. After graduating from high school in 1966, Bob started his apprenticeship at the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) as a mechanic. He was a proud man who liked his job at the TTC up to his retirement in 1996, thirty years to the day he started there.
Bob Moores and Margaret Moores met in 1969, and on their third date, Bob proposed to Margaret, and they were married on February 28, 1970. Margaret and their children Steven (Carlie) and Karen will miss having Bob around, as will Margaret herself (Rob Holliday). Emily, Jason, Ashton, and Ethan loved having him as their grandfather, and he took full advantage of his early retirement at the young age of 47 by going on trips with Margaret.
They decided to start a new life together in 2009, so they both sold their homes and purchased a new truck and trailer. They fell in love with Arizona, and eventually decided to make that state their permanent winter residence. They stayed in Alliston throughout their senior years, where they enjoyed time with their grandchildren and their dogs. Everyone whose life he touched will grieve his passing in their own unique way.
A Celebration of Bob’s Life will be held at Drury Funeral Centre 519 Victoria St. E., Alliston on Sunday, February 12th from 1-4 p.m. with family memories shared at 2 p.m. It would be appreciated if, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Alzheimer’s Society.
