In Celebration of

Robert Amaolo

April 3, 1950 -  January 31, 2019

Bob passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 31st, 2019, in Mississauga, ON at the age of 68. Beloved husband of Eveline, his best friend of 51 years, loving father & friend to Kate, Lauren (Mike) and Jessie. Bob was the cherished son of Nella and the late John Amaolo. He will be lovingly remembered by his aunts Susan (Garth) and Elda, and his cousins. Bob was a teacher for over 35 years, making dear friends and memories at St. Louis, Michael Power High School and Fr. John Redmond. He enjoyed the simple pleasures in life, but had an affinity for boating, listening to music, hiking, golf, photography, playing frisbee with his dog Riley, and watching sunsets. Mr. Fix-it and chief problem solver, he was always ready to jump to the rescue of family and friends. Bob was a loving friend to all who met him and had a knack for bringing people together. Often referred to as "the cruise director”, he had a lot of fun organizing social gatherings and loved a lively debate with his coffee club friends. Above all else, he was a family man, patient and kind, always looking out for his girls. He will be fondly remembered by all that had the pleasure to know him.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Lymphoma Cancer Research Fund at the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.

So very sad to hear the passing of your father Lauren.

I only just made the association between you and him after seeing a photo of you as a baby in his arms on Facebook. Mr Amaolo (as I knew him) was my favourite teacher in high school. He was also the coolest teacher but he also knew exactly what us ne'er-do-wells were scheming and would call us out. I believe I had classes with him in Mass Media (the best course!) and English and he was always encouraging towards me for class projects, speeches or essays. Once, after I submitted a humorous essay that he enjoyed, he asked me to help with the school yearbook but sadly I was too cool for school for that, and I regret that still.

My sincere condolences to you and your family Lauren.

My most sincere sympathy goes out to Nella, Eveline, and family. My heart is breaking at the loss of our Bobby. As he takes our love for him up to Heaven, he also leaves his love for each of us with us. That love is what we all get to keep through our tears, laughter and priceless memories. May God hold you all in His precious arms as you grieve the great loss of the wonderful man. 🌹
