DIGNARD, Robert - It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family of Robert Dignard announce his passing. Bob passed away Wednesday, April 11th 2013, peacefully and in his sleep in his 65th year, at his residence in Welland. Bob, known to many as "Dig", was a loyal, loving and charismatic father, husband and friend. He leaves behind his three children who love their father immensely, Curtis, Dana and Evan; his wife and lifelong friend, Debbie (nee Crawford); his brothers Denis (Pauline) and Leonard; son-in-law Adam Martin; mother-in-law Ruby; brothers- and sisters-in-law Wayne and Nancy, Dave and Mona, Gary and Lori; nieces and nephews Amber, Jesse, Leantha, Carly, Chase and Sasha. Bob will be lovingly remembered by the Crawford family. Bob was pre-deceased by parents Pierre and Émilia, and cherished dog, Newt. Thank you to Pudgy (Wray Tellier) for his friendship and support of Bob in the months before his passing. There will be a celebration of life gathering on Friday, April 19th at the Royal Canadian Legion at 383 Morningstar after 8 p.m. All are welcome to join and remember "Dig" as the life-of-the-party, larger-than-life, Rolling Stones and Habs-loving man that he was. If desired, donation cards to the Hope Centre - Welland, can be picked up at the WELLAND FUNERAL HOME , 827 East Main Street, Welland.
