On Saturday, March 23, 2019, Robert (Bob) Gracey, loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, passed away at age 89.
Bob was born on October 29, 1929, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Robert and Hilda Gracey of Northern Ireland. He married Alywn Jones and they were very proud to have two sons, Mike and Terry.
Bob had a life long passion for music; playing the trumpet, the piano and the accordion. He entertained at dances, weddings, scouting events, school events and at the church. In more recent years he played for seniors at the hospital. He was an entertainer at heart, whether music or storytelling he was his happiest interacting with people. Bob was a master cabinet maker, learning these skills from his father in Northern Ireland. He loved to design and build and enjoyed special requests that required he use all of his skills to design and create. Bob’s Irish charm was evident in his quick wit, infectious smile, and hearty laugh. He will be remembered for his kind and compassionate spirit.
Bob was predeceased by his wife Alwyn, his parents and his brother Raymond and sister Valerie. He is survived by his son Mike (Joyce) and his son Terry (Miriam). He was blessed with grandchildren Christina, Joshua, Emily (Blaise), Elliott (Kathryn), Erin and Evan. He also has two great-grandchildren, Abilene and Sophie.
Public visitation is from 6 – 9 pm on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 at McKersie-Kocher Funeral Home, 114 Main Street E., 905-878-4452, Milton, ON L9T 1N5. As per Bob’s wishes, there will be a private family funeral on Wednesday. The family will host a celebration of life at a later date. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations in memory of Bob to the Milton District Auxiliary would be appreciated by the family.

It was a pleasure to know Bob, what a wonderful man! The twinkle in his eye when he greeted you put a smile on anyone's face. He was kind and caring and gosh he always had a hug! Missed very much already, may he rest in peace in the loving hands of God. Sending deepest condolences to all who knew and loved him. The world has certainly lost a true gentleman.
