Robert "Bob" P. L. Farrell

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Robert "Bob" Patrick Logan Farrell, age 78, of Springhill, Nova Scotia. Bob passed away peacefully after a three-year battle with cancer at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre on Thursday, October 10, 2019.

Bob was a family man, always happy when family was around. He could always be found smiling and at his happiest when spending time with his grandchildren. He was an avid hunter, always looking forward to time in the woods, and he loved to fish. Bob loved music and playing guitar and the harmonica. Bob and Carol loved to go dancing. They were unbelievable on the dance floor,  especially when doing the jive.

Bob will be dearly missed by his loving wife of 57 years, the former Carol Spence, Springhill. They were looking forward to their 58th wedding anniversary on October 28th. He will also be missed by his sons, Patrick (Crystal), Amherst, Joseph R.
