    We regret to advise of the sudden death of Sergeant Bob Fader (Retired) on 17 March 2005.

    Bob joined the Royal Canadian Engineers with the Sapper Apprentice Program 1962-64. Two Field Squadron tours followed: 3 Field Squadron, Chilliwack, 1964 - 68, then 4 Field Squadron, Germany, 1968-74. When Bob returned to Canada he was posted to CFB Chilliwack with Training Support Troop. This was followed by a tour with 2 Combat Engineer Regiment before returning to CFB Chilliwack for a final posting before retirement in 1983.

    Bob retired after 20 years service as a Field Engineer and was employed with the Bank of Montreal servicing Automated Teller Machines. Shortly thereafter, he became the supervisor and had worked some 23 years in this second career at the time of his death.

    A private funeral service was conducted and a 'Celebration of Life' for Bob was held at the Fort Langley Golf Course. {kh22 Aug2015}
