Obituary for Robert Chafe

Chafe: Robert Leslie
After a lengthy battle with cancer, it is with broken hearts that we share the passing of Bob, peacefully into the arms of his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on Friday, June 24th, 2022, at the age of 74. Dearly beloved husband of the late Julie (nee: Simmons) and cherished son of the late Gordon and Bernice (nee: Graham). Loving father of Dawn (Dave) Vien, Melissa (Luca) Bellinato, Robert (Lisa) Simmons, Kathleen Kutlesa, and Douglas (Brenda) Simmons. Beloved grandfather of Jesse, Isaac, Adam, Hailey, Liam, Graham, Victoria, Megan, Joshua, Amelia, and Cash. Dear brother of Brenda (Frank) Fioramante of Sault St. Marie, Mary Lee (Herb) DeWitt of Point Edward, and the late John and Harvey Chafe. Loved by many nieces, nephews and friends. Bob’s quick wit and sense of humour will be dearly missed. His infectious smile, look at the bright side of life, and kind generous heart made him a spark plug to everyone in his life. His passion for wheeling and dealing, rebuilding old cars and hot rods began at the age of 12 and continued until this past year. “The Adventures of Bob and Julie” continue on as they dance their dance in heaven together again. Cremation has taken place and a celebration of Bob’s life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, Donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
