MIGNAULT, Robert (Bob) Duval

Mr. Robert "Bob" Mignault


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Robert on May 14, 2018, peacefully at his home in Pointe Claire, Quebec. Predeceased by his spouse Cecile McGovern Mignault (1987).  He is survived by his children Louise, Peter and Michele (Earl Nicol), grandson Bob Nicol and his spouse Elizabeth Derry and stepchildren Meg, Richard and Jedd.

Bob was loved by his family and well liked by his many friends and acquaintances. He was both respectful of others and well respected. An introvert by nature, he liked people and it showed. His warmth, integrity and sense of humour were appealing to those around him.

An engineer by trade, Bob was an intelligent person who liked to keep his mind sharp.  A life-long learner, he remained interested in politics and new technology. He challenged himself and continued to learn computer programming well into in his 80s.  He was an avid bridge player who liked to keep score :-). Bob loved to travel and he remained active and independent throughout his life.

He will be greatly missed by many.

Thank you to the staff at Le Cambridge for their support and to the staff at CHSLD Le Bussy in Lachine for their ongoing compassion and caring for Bob’s spouse Elizabeth.

In keeping with his wishes for simplicity, there will be a private memorial for family only. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Bob’s name to Centraide of Greater Montreal Foundation.

    I met and knew Bob for many years while playing in our Thursday bridge group. In addition to his skilled bridge play, he was always very congenial to everyone. At lunch time, he talked his business career, computers, news, while enjoying his Subway sandwich. But mostly he spoke about his family members about whom he deeply cared. Bob will be missed. My sincere sympathies to the family. Ron Neill.

    Hi Ron, Thanks for your message. My dad was a Subway sandwich lover (well, all food). And he loved his bridge games with you guys. Thank you.

    Dear Louise, Peter and Michele, I was so sad to read of your Dad’s passing. Your Mom and Dad met my Mom and Dad way way back when they were all first married and lived in the same apartment building. Now today, the 4 of them are reunited. Please know that my thoughts are with you at this difficult time. sincerely, Linda Churchill-Kagan
