January 24, 1953 to October 28, 2017
of Atwood, passed away on Saturday October 28, 2017 at the age of 64. Beloved son of Howard Darroch and the late Myrta (Buchanan) Darroch. Dear brother of Dianne Lichti (Paul) and Michael Darroch (Theresa). Special uncle of Chad (Heather), Christopher, Matthew (Sarah), Alexander, Melissa, Scott and great uncle of Bennett, Cora and Colton. Fondly remembered by his aunts, uncles and cousins. During his life, Bobby developed deep connections with his friends within the Atwood/Listowel community. He valued these friendships very much and enjoyed the kinship provided by them. They provided a “social family” for him that coexisted with his biological family roots. Being a creature of routine, Bobby would visit his comrades daily at Ralph’s Service Centre in Atwood and he was a proud member the Listowel Legion. It is certain that his banter and big laugh will be missed in many of the local meeting places where he was often found with a beer, a pool cue or a dart, happily engaged in a friendly, or sometimes very competitive game. Bobby enjoyed gadgets and technology. He was proud of his cars. He had a soft heart for his niece and nephews. He lived life freely and independently. He will be deeply missed by all who love him. Relatives and friends are invited to share their memories at the Brenneman Funeral Home, 141 John Street, Atwood (519-356-2382), on Monday October 30 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. and on Tuesday October 31, 2017 from 10:00 till 10:45 a.m. followed by the funeral service at 11:00 a.m. with Rev.
