Robert “Bobby” Allan KIRKNESS
March 21, 1961 - August 31, 2021
After a hard-fought battle with cancer, Robert “Bobby” Allan Kirkness passed away on August 31, 2021 at the age of 60. He is lovingly remembered by his wife of 36 years; Rhonda and their two children; Brennan and Meagan; mother Sheila; brother Doug (Iva); brother Brian (Naomi); father and mother-in-law; Tony and Joanne Baschuk along with numerous sister and brother in-laws, nieces, nephews and relatives; as well as many wonderful close friends. He was predeceased by his father Ron. Bob was an amazing person and loved by all that knew him. He lived his life to the fullest and enjoyed travelling and spending time visiting with family and friends. His family was his pride and joy. There wasn’t anything he wouldn’t have done for them or anybody else. He had a love for the outdoors and spent many days on his bike riding around the City of Saskatoon or simply relaxing in his backyard pool. He was one of the most outgoing and fun-loving guys that you will ever meet. His sense of humor was endless and his laugh contagious. Bob worked for the City of Saskatoon for 32 years until his retirement from SaskTel Centre in 2011. Bob had a lifelong love for the game of hockey - what he loved the most were the people he met at the rink where he could be found laughing, having fun and making friends. He was a long-time volunteer with many groups including the Saskatoon Blades and was so honoured and proud to be a part of such a great organization. His cheerful attitude and bright smile will be missed by all. Thank you to everyone for sharing your memories, support and love. Your kindness is deeply appreciated and will be forever remembered.
