A loss to our community: Obituary – BOB REIMER


Bob Reimer passed away October 20th at the age of 57. Born August. 11, 1954, in Steinbach Manitoba, Bob lived most of his life in British Columbia before moving to Calgary in 1980 to start his family and ceramics career. He leaves behind three children; Julia, Peter and Angela, four grand-children, his former partner and best friend Jeannie, a community of friends, colleagues and students. Bob was known as a passionate, loving, talented and humorous individual, an asset to the ceramics community and a beloved teacher. He touched many lives. He will be remembered fondly, and thought of daily. No words can describe the grief we are all feeling while coping with this sudden loss. We take comfort in knowing he did not suffer, he was happy and loved by many. A special thanks for all the support received from friends and family. We will be celebrating Bob, a remarkable individual, at North Mount Pleasant Arts Center, 402, 470 – 27 Avenue N.W., Calgary on Monday, October 24 at 3:00 p.m. Please bring your stories, smiles and clay splattered pants if you have them.
