Obituary

ROBERT “BOB” CLARINGBOLD
JUNE 3, 1933 – JULY 24, 2020
Peacefully, surrounded by the love of his family, after a courageous battle at the Tillsonburg District Memorial Hospital on Friday, July 24, 2020, Robert “Bob” James Claringbold of Tillsonburg passed away at the age of 87 years. Bob was a dedicated employee of Livingston Export in Tillsonburg and Hagersville for 40 years, retiring as Plant Manager. He was a lifelong member and pillar of Bethel Church in Tillsonburg and served as treasurer for over 50 years. Bob had a deep concern for the needs of Third World countries and he and Myra made 35 mission trips to Guatemala, Bolivia, Peru and the Caribbean Islands to build schools, churches, medical facilities and homes. He also had a deep care for our community being one of the founding members of YFC ministry. The love of Bob’s life was Myra for throughout their 64 years of marriage. Bob found much joy in their 4 amazing children; Crystal Carle (Rod) of Abbotsford, B.C., Craig Claringbold, Dwayne Claringbold (Cindy) and Darryl all of Tillsonburg. Bob delighted in his grandchildren in their goals and accomplishments; Brodie Carle (Lindsay), Jadyn Carle (Michelle), Taylor Carle (Malcolm), Cody Claringbold, Scott Claringbold, Braden Claringbold, Jenna Claringbold, Ryan Claringbold, Megan Claringbold and 4 great-grandchildren. Bob is also survived by his brother-in-law Roger Scott, nephews Paul Luciani (Denise), Robert and Randy Adamson and niece Deb Metslaar (Dave). Babe, his Basset was added to his clan after his first Basset, Sadie. They were seen by many on their daily walks and nightly baseball games. Predeceased by his parents Harold and Aletha (Heath) Claringbold and sisters Jean Luciani (1960) and Lois Scott (2019). Bob was honoured with the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Award in 2012. He was an avid fisherman, outdoorsman, story and joke teller- many will miss Bob’s ability to recall the old stories of Tillsonburg. Our grief is much lighter knowing Bob, Dad is now making Heaven his home with Jesus whom he served all his life.

Dear Myra and family
We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Bob. We were so Blessed to have been able to work with Bob for so many years. He will be forever remembered for his many stories, his quick wit, and the joy he got from watching everyone's reactions. He had such a great smile and a joy of laughter. His faith was strong which was reflected for his love of singing and his thrill of helping so many in uncounted ways. His faith family and his personal family meant the world to him and we so often heard him recounting stories about them. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with each of you during these difficult days. Reg and Janet

Sheila & I send our love and thoughts in the death of Bob. We have good memories of Bob’s life as we spent time at Bethel Temple as the pastor. Bob was a support and friend, and served as a Church Board member with distinction. He always had time to help with the Junior Youth, and his many mission trips to build churches, schools and housing. He will be missed but never forgotten by those whose lives he impacted.
God bless each of you... Pastor Keith and Sheila Schwindt

What an inspirational man. I’m so thankful for the love he had for our Father God and for the many young people who know Him because of Bobs’ dedication to Jesus’ ministry. He will be truly missed.
My love and sympathy to you Myra and the rest of the family.
