We are deeply saddened to announce the sudden, unexpected passing of Bob Sturney.

Bob moved with his family to New Hazelton in October, 1949. He served in Canada’s Air Force as a radar man. Bob worked for the B.C. Ministry of Highways and the B.C. Forest Service.

He also owned and ran the first video store in the Hazeltons, Roche Video and Sports. Passionate about golf, he could be found from April to October on the links in Smithers and Terrace.

Bob is survived by his wife Fay; his daughter Heather (Graham); son Rob; stepson Sean (Christy); brothers Richard (Daphne), Ray (Maureen), and Lyle; sisters Barbara Jackson (Reg) and Sharon Rawluk (Randy); five grandchildren, two step-grandchildren, and two great grandchildren.

A good-natured man of tremendous wit, humanity and intellect, he will be sorely missed.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of B.C. and Yukon.
