Obituary For Robert Maria Guterres
We are deeply saddened to announce the sudden passing of Robert on February 24, 2021 at Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock, BC after a short but courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Robert leaves behind his loving wife of 47 years Catherine, his sons Stephen (Dana), their children Anna, Brendan, Olivia of Georgetown, ON, and David (Kristine) of Langley, BC. Robert was also predeceased by his father, George and mother, Betty and survived by his 3 brothers, sisters-in law, niece and nephews and many relatives and friends around the world.
Born in Hong Kong, sports were always a big part of his life. Growing up he played field hockey, softball, badminton, cricket and tennis but it was golf that became his lifelong passion. As a longtime member of Quilchena Golf & Country Club, he passed that passion on to his sons and his grandson too.
Robert will be remembered by many as someone they enjoyed being around and will not soon be forgotten. A memorial mass will not be celebrated immediately, details will be provided at a later date in hopes that his friends and family can gather to remember him together.
We would like to extend thanks to the doctors and nurses at both St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver and Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock for all the care and compassion that they provided to Robert and the family.
