Robert "Poppie" Story

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, Robert “Bob” Story on January 15th, 2017. Bob passed away peacefully at Camp Hill Veterans Memorial Hospital surrounded by his loving family. Bob was born to Harry and Annie Story on March 19, 1923. He left home at age 18 to serve overseas during WWII in the engineering division of the Canadian Army. Upon his return, he met the love of his life, his wife of 69 years, Mary Piccott. They had a wonderful life together and raised four children. Bob began his career as a draftsman at Halifax Dockyard. He later worked as a Quantity Surveyor and taught at the Nova Scotia Institute of Technology. Bob was a founding member of the Nova Scotia Quantity Surveyor Association and was awarded a lifetime membership in 2010. Bob was a talented athlete and enjoyed playing and watching many sports, especially golf and hockey. He had many friendships that he enjoyed both through his work and sports. He was loved and respected by many for his warm heart, cheerful demeanor and kind actions. Bob was bright and capable and loved his work. He was happy to be able to work even in his final years of life. Bob will be greatly missed by his family who loved him dearly. He is survived by his wife Mary; children, Sandra (Harvey), Upper Stewiacke, Deborah (John), Dartmouth, Robert, Hubbards, Heather (Grant), Mineville; grandchildren, Erin, Gillian (Andrew), Joshua (Brittany), Hannah, Chloe and Abby; greatgrandchildren, Olivia, Oliver, Ellie, Elijah and Isaac.
