Obituary for Robert "R.A.B." Allison Bishop

Robert "R.A.B." Allison Bishop of Upper Salmon Creek, NB passed away peacefully at the W. G. Bishop Nursing Home on Monday, November 29, 2021. Bob was born in Salmon Creek, NB on January 2, 1947 son of the late Talmage and Olive (Bishop) Fiddler. He is survived by his nephew Cameron (Dianne) Clark.

Predeceased by his parents and his brother Hazen Bishop.

Bob worked as a woodsman for several years, and, in his later years, he worked at the Queens North Community Health Complex as a custodian up until his retirement. Although he had many hobbies in his life, his greatest passion was for the Minto-Chipman Lions Club for which he served many years, and he enjoyed every minute. Bob could often be seen wearing either a Lions hat, smock, or some variation of the Lions pin; that was the "R.A.B" that everyone knew and loved. During his tenure with the Lions Club, he spend many years building community engagement and leadership traits in those around them. He enjoyed doing 'speak-outs' with the various community youths, but his favourite pastime of all was the Dippy Dog stand.

Bob was the definition of a community-minded individual. He had great pride in his community and loved to contribute to it however he could. He leaves behind a legacy that we will not soon forget and memories for many of us that will last a lifetime.

The family will receive comfort at the Chipman Funeral Home & Crematorium prior to the service on Wednesday, December 1, 2021 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm. A celebration of Bob’s life will be at 2:00 pm. Interment will be made in the Red Bank United Church Cemetery following the service. Donations in memory of Bob made to the School Breakfast Program would be appreciated.

Arrangements are in the compassionate care of Chipman Funeral Home & Crematorium (339-6612). Memories and condolences may be shared through
