Captain Robert W. Hallworth

November 4, 1934 - January 3, 2016

Burial Date February 6, 2016

A celebration of Bob’s life will be held on Saturday, February 6th at 3:30 p.m. at the British Columbia Aviation Museum at 1910 Norseman Rd, Sidney, BC. Refreshments will be served and guests are welcome to tour the museum after the celebration.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Captain Robert W. Hallworth on January 3, 2016, at the age of 81, due to heart and lung complications in Saanichton, BC.
Born in Bellevue, Alberta, son of Fred and Georgina (deceased), brother to Lorna Jean. Bob left southern Alberta in 1953 joining the RCAF via RMC in Kingston, ON. After 13 years in the military with his wife Audrey (deceased) and their two boys, Ian and David, he joined Air Canada and flew for 28 more years. Through the flying, Bob and his family saw much of the world. His honeymoon with Rosmarie (deceased) included a three-month stay in the South Pacific flying for Polynesian Airlines.

A special thank you to the wonderful people he called his friends; they made his life rich. He will be lovingly remembered by his sons, Ian and David; his daughters-in-law, Linda and Brenda; his grandchildren, Ben, Zak, Sam, and Grace; his stepdaughter, Carol and her husband Christian; his stepdaughter Christine and her children, Bradley and Erin; and, most recently, his friend Jose.

In lieu of flowers, please visit an aviation museum and enjoy!
