December 17, 1947 – September 24, 2020
Robert Dale Adcock, of Ponoka, Alberta, passed away September 24, 2020. He was born December 17, 1947, in Lacombe Alberta.
He was a kind and loving partner to his wife Connie, who he met at a dance in the Crestomere area. A wonderful and dedicated father as the primary caregiver to his children. He was a gentle caring man, who was really good with babies and animals.
He was a wise, generous, respectful, person and would help anyone and everyone. Bob had vast experience with many different occupations, including his own delivery service, he was a professional driver including long haul truck transport, working in construction, managing a Co-op supply store, was mechanically inclined, and he was a MacGyver of sorts, with the ingenuity to create and work with his hands.
He loved country living, dogs, horses, and music.
Robert is greatly missed and survived by his wife, Connie; his children, Kerri Brown, Kathy Fay Adcock, TJ Adcock, Jack Adcock, Jennifer Adcock, and Jeremy Adcock; his 16 grandchildren; his 6 great grandchildren; his sisters Violet (Eric) Darrach, Margaret (Neale) Ronald, Linda Rendle, Kim Adcock; his brothers Charles (Carol), Miles (Fay), Wade (Kathy), Sandy (Norma). He is preceded in death by his infant son Quinn; his sister Marie Warne; his parents, Robert Glenford Adcock and Eliza Jane (Spink) Adcock.
A Funeral Service will be held at Ponoka Funeral Home on Friday, October 2, 2020 at 1:00 p.m., with a reception to follow at the Royal Canadian Legion, Ponoka. Memorial Donations in Robert’s name are gratefully accepted to the Alzheimer Society or any charity of your choice.
A live stream of the service will be available through Robert’s obituary page at womboldfuneralhomes.com. The service will be available for viewing for 90 days following the service as well.
Due to the current pandemic restrictions, there are capacity limits. So, coordinating with the family would allow for better management of the required mitigation. However, all are welcome, so please join us in the celebration of Bob’s life.
Remember the dash placed between the years from the beginning – to the end. For that dash represents all the time spent alive on this earth, and now only those who knew him, know what that little line is worth.
