Condolence From: Dave BURGOYNE
Condolence: To Robert`s sons,
The summer is over and I was thinking of your Dad and when young, how much time he and I and Clyde spent together. I used to go of the wharf and swim over to Greg`s and back. One day I dove off the diving board and YEOW!!! I dove through a huge jellyfish - lesson learned. I have such fond memories of summers down home in NS and your Dad was part of them. Please know he is at peace and keeping an eye on you from above. ``Burg``

Condolence: Dear Family of Robert O'Neil I know the pain and heartache your feeling as I lost my mother twelve years ago to a massive stroke. Even tho it’s been twelve years it seems the pain of such a loss never goes away. Death really makes the heart ache. No wonder the Bible refers to it as an enemy ! (1 Corinthians 15:26) We all find ourselves asking, “why do we have to get sick, suffer, grow old and eventually die Is that all there is to life ?” In answer to these questions, we are personally invited by our loving and compassionate Heavenly Father to look to Him and His word, the Bible. So lets do that. Because of our inherited sin and imperfection thru Adam and Eve, we are plagued with sickness and death. This is found in the Bible book of Romans the 5th. chapter and verse 12. But God in His Almighty wisdom, made a way out of this doom and gloom for mankind. God wants life for us, a happy, healthy, eternal life. So, God made a provision. He sent His Son Christ Jesus as a ransom sacrifice so that all those who put faith in that provision might enjoy Gods promise of everlasting life. This promise from God is found at John 3,16&36. Christ Jesus was willing to sacrifice His life for mankind. What love He and His Heavenly Father have for us.! Our God of mercy has even promised us a resurrection of our loved ones as shown in the Bible book of John 5:28&29. Yes in this life we do have much hope for the future. Revelation 21:1-4 tells us that the time will soon come when we will no more fear death or endure any pain. God will soon wipe these out forever. Then we will only have tears of joy as we welcome our loved ones back from deaths grip. I find great comfort in this knowledge and I’m sure you do too. What a joy it will be to see our loved ones again!
May this bring you and your family peace and comfort in your time of grief. If you care to respond ,I would love to hear from you. God Bless.

Condolence From: Larry and Dawn Cullen
Condolence: To the family,
So sorry to hear of Rob's passing. We started our very first day at the dockyard together many years ago and remained friends throughout our careers. Unfortunately I am unable to be with you at this difficult time because I am away for the winter but please be comforted to know that Rob is in my thoughts.

Condolence From: Faye Mingo
Condolence: Dear Ann, Chris, Peter, Michael, and all your families: Rob was the first person I met when I arrived to live in Halifax in January 1960. There was a huge storm so we couldn't get into our new home. As a result, we stayed at the Bedford Motel for three days which happened to be next door to where Rob lived on the Bedford Highway. Rob was outside playing in the snow with his dog and I went out to play with him. I didn't see Rob again for many years but Hilda and my mother were in the same UCW group at Bethany United (for forty years - they even ended up with heart attacks and open heart surgery at the same time and lived with illnesses for many years after that). The next time I saw Rob, we were classmates in grade 10 at Halifax West. We dated the next year for nearly a year. We skied at Wentworth frequently, went to Shore Club dances, drove on his motor bike - once down Bell road at, literally, 100 mph. Another time, we drove so fast around the first turn at St. Luke's Church that we slide on the gravel for it seemed a hundred yards. We were pretty well scraped up - enough so, I never got on a motor bike again. Rob and I were always friends. He went to Scotland and I married and moved to Montreal. One day many years later (a couple of decades), Mom said Rob was divorced and I should call him. I actually sent him a card but before the card arrived to him, he called me. We were again close friends. We have always been friends and even when years went by and we didn't see each other, we were always delighted to see each other. Life drives us in many different ways and for the past 15 years we hadn't seen much of each other although we did sail together a couple of times. I was very upset to hear of Rob's stroke a year or so ago and immediately went to the hospital to see him. I also went to Oceanview Manor to see him there. Yesterday, when I read of his obituary I was sickened. My friend of 57 years has gone. Even when I wrote a book about my family's businesses (A Winning Combination), I dedicated my book to my friend, Robert O'Neil. My heart aches at the thought I will never see him again. No matter what, no matter how long we hadn't seen each other, no matter where life lead us, we were always friends. Good-bye my dear friend, Rob. May you rest in peace and may the wind always be at your back. Ann, Chris, Peter, Micheal, and your families. My sincere condolences go out to you. Faye Mingo

Condolence From: Clyde& Barb Harnish
Condolence: Rob and I were very good friends, known him since we were very young. His family had a trailer across the road from us and as a young man I could hardly wait for him to show up. When summer arrived we were inseparable. He had a Morris dingy and we practically lived on that little sailboat from June till September,exploring all the coves and islands. We always exchanged gifts at birthdays and at Christmas. His parents were awesome and very close friends of my parents.
They have a 100 acre farm in Caledonia, and they had a 1944 army jeep. He and I drove that jeep all over the place. Oh what great memories! A few years later he had a little motorcycle (Honda55cc) and the two of us rode to Caledonia, 100 miles away, was my behind ever sore!
He was my "best man " at our wedding, but most of all he was the best! His sense of humour kept us in laughter constantly, each day he had a new story to tell us.
He loved the ocean,above and below. He had more boats over the years than most people ever dreamed of. Hubbards is sailing and the water and everybody knew Rob. He was the harbour master and mooring master. Mariners that came to the cove from all over the world were always greeted by Rob and always with a helping hand.
His boys were everything to Rob,and his influence on them is very apparent, as they are all excellent sailers, but mostly they are the salt of the earth,good citizens.
I feel so sorry for Rob for the last two years of his life, trapped in a body, and not being able to do what he would have wanted. Hopefully he is now at peace.
Rest in peace my old friend, you will never be forgotten.

Condolence From: Rob Bright
Condolence: Pete, Chris, Mike,
I have a lot of great memories in Hubbards with Rob. He was always quick to jump in and lend a hand with anyone in the cove and shared a ton of great stories over the years. I learned a lot from him.
I will be thinking of all of you. He will be missed.

Condolence From: Gary and Heather Crossland
Condolence: Peter, Christopher, Michael & Families. Our Sincere Sympathy Love & Prayers goes to all of you at this sad time. Robbie was a very special man in our lives as he travelled with Gary over 20 years to the Dockyard. Always talked about his three sons and we got to know you without ever meeting you. He was so kind and use to take our daughter Chelsey sailing and even came to her wedding dressed in a Souwester hat the coat and pants and had a loud bell that he rang out hollering Hear ye Hear ye. Had a live lobster on a rope that he walked through the hall and just had many treasures made for her from nature. He called the lobster Willie The Water dog. People loved this and our Daughter and husband were in tears. It meant so much to them. He was a very kind man and will be remembered like that to all of us and he was Gary's navigator through the city streets coming home at night.They spent lots of fun times in a 15 passenger van with lots of other people and the stories never stopped. He always had a bag of candy to share with every one. He will truly be missed but left so many great memories of you young men and his boys. That's what you all were and he was so proud of all of you. R.I.P.Dear Friend xoxox
