    We  regret to advise of the death of Robert Donald Christie, unexpectedly but peacefully at the Ottawa Civic Hospital on Friday, 9 December in his 80th year. Bob was a long-time civilian member of Mapping and Charting Establishment and the Union of National Defence Employees representative for many years.  He was a strong supporter of the unit throughout his life. 

    Bob was a photogrammetrist trained on most such equipment at Mapping and Charting Establishment and specializing in the Wild OR-1 Orthophoto Mapping system.  In 1965 he received a Departmental Suggestion Award for the simultaneous plotting of a full manuscript and colour separated scribe sheets on the Wild B-8 plotter. He was a longtime photographer and member of the Mappers Club.

    Friends may pay their respects at the Kelly Funeral Home, Barrhaven Chapel (3000 Woodroffe Avenue, Nepean, ON) on Tuesday, 13 December 2016 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. A Memorial Service will take place Wednesday, 14 December at the Knox United Church (25 Gibbard Avenue, Nepean) at 1:00 p.m. In Memoriam donations to the University of Ottawa Heart Institute would be appreciated.
