Robert “Bob” Charles MacPhee – Age 81, Bible Hill. It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, Robert Charles MacPhee on September 8th, 2022, in Bible Hill.

Robert was born on March 25th, 1941, in Glace Bay. He was a son of the late Charlie and Alice (Janes) MacPhee. Robert grew up in Glace Bay and in 1968, moved to Truro with his new wife, Tena.

Robert was also the proud grandfather of Josie, Tina, Joshua, Grace, and Lily and great-grandfather of Liam.

Bob was a member of Immaculate Conception Parish in Truro. It was his family and faith that gave him the greatest joy. He was a social worker at the Nova Scotia Youth Training Centre for 27 wonderful years.

Robert was predeceased by his loving wife, Christena (Dunphy) in 2015. Robert was also predeceased by brothers, Joseph and Douglas and sister, Jo-Ann.
