O’Brien, Robert

Robert O’Brien

February 1st 1956 – May 12th 2022

It is with broken hearts and fond memories we announce the peaceful passing of our husband, father, poppy, brother, son-in-law, brother-in-law, uncle, cousin, and dear friend. Robert passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at Ian Anderson Hospice on May 12th, 2022. Soulmate and devoted husband of 45 years to Cynthia O’Brien (Meadus), father like no other to his children Amanda Stewart ( O’Brien), Robyn O’Brien, and Cory O’Brien. Best poppy in the world to his five grandchildren whom he adored and cherished, Kyle, Adam, Emily, Alice, and Henry.

Born in Newfoundland, Robert was a hard worker who loved his family. He loved to smile, and laugh and was the most caring man. He was so well-liked and loved by so many. Always and forever in our hearts, we love and miss you so very much. You are now in heaven with your mom and dad, Edmund and Louise O’Brien, and your brother, Paul O’Brien. Robert will be missed by all his family and friends.

    Simple words for a simple man. A brother, a friend and someone I will never forget. How could I? I was a kid, you were a bigger kid. IN age only. You know Robert you are missed but remembered. It’s best but not wanted and you feel asleep which was the best as of course you didn’t want to leave but you knew it was time. Now our time to let you rest.

    Always and forever not forgotten and I will make sure to bring your name up no matter how hard it is. It will take time but we will laugh with you my brother.

    xxxxooo Jacqueline 🙂

    Daddy, where do i begin…. you were the best father to us and worked so hard to give us everything we needed/wanted. I miss hearing you calling me “Robbie”, or calling me on Skype just to say hi. I miss seeing your face…. hearing your laugh. How do I begin a life without you? But i have peace knowing you’re no longer suffering… you’re free dad. And that brings me such joy and peace. I will treasure forever being blessed to hold your hand and rub your face until the end. Hope you’re having a beer watching over us and leading us down the right path. I will miss you forever dad. I will make you proud. Alice will be amazing and we will take care of mom. You will forever live inside your children. Its nit good bye, its see ya soon old man. I love you. As you would say….“ Ciao“ lol. Xoxo Rest East P op. Xo
