BUZIK Robert, also known as Cowboy Bob (1941 – 2023)
Robert was born on September 8, 1941, and he spent most of his life in Saskatoon, until the last 15 years, where he lived in Rosthern. He passed away peacefully at the age of 81 on New Year’s Day. He was a beloved son, brother, and uncle. He was predeceased by his parents, Peter and Anna Buzik, his older sister, Eleanore Macdonald and brother, Neville Buzik. Robert was a special uncle, and he will be missed by his nephew Brent Macdonald (Charlene) and nieces, Lisa Kennedy (Martin), and Deborah Macdonald, as well as seven great nephews and nieces.
Robert was a very social, fun-loving, and warm-hearted person. An unconditional friend and buddy for life. He enjoyed socializing and people were attracted to his great smile, laughter, and sparkling personality. He loved watching anything Disney, old movies, and TV series, with Snow White, Carol Burnett & Harper Valley PTA being his favorites. He also had a passion for cameras and photographs. He looked at his massive picture collection daily and could easily recall names of people from long ago where no one else could. He spent countless hours doing puzzles and playing various games. He was enthusiastic about social events and loved participating in the Senior’s Program at Rosthern Valley Action Abilities Centre, as well as Cosmopolitan Industries.
The family would like to thank the staff at Valley Action Care Home/Abilities Centre where Robert primarily resided for the last several years, his many caregivers at other personal care homes, the staff at Cosmopolitan Industries and Rosthern Hospital for looking after him in his final few days. He will be forever loved and in the hearts of the people that knew him. Cowboy Bob is best summed up by one of his favorite characters, Snow White, when she talked about her prince, “There’s nobody like him, anywhere at all.”
A Celebration of Life, followed by a private family interment will take place at a later date. Donations can be made in his name to Valley Action Abilities Inc., Box 401, Rosthern, SK. Interment of ashes will be held at a later date.
