Robert Ethelbert Handcock
September 15th, 1936 – February 22nd, 2021

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our father, grandfather, great grandfather, and friend Robert Ethelbert Handcock at Lakeside Home in Gander on Monday, February 22nd, 2021 at the age of 84. Born September 15th, 1936 in Salvage to parents Marion and Fred Handcock. Robert grew up to move to Sandringham where he met and married his loving wife Caroline. They always enjoyed trips to their cabin on Rocky Bay Island, and in later years their retirement cabin in Terra Nova where he was always up for a dance and a laugh.

Robert is predeceased by his wife Caroline Handcock, son Gary Handcock, brother Melvin Handcock, parents Marion and Fred Handcock, and very special friend Ivy Brown.

Leaving to mourn are his children Glen (Diane), Lee (Lorna), and daughter-in-law Susan. Grandchildren Amanda, Andy, Alex, Kelsey, Victoria, and Isaiah. Great grandchildren Noah, Ally, Adaline, and Gemma.

Due to Covid restrictions, there will be no funeral taking place at this time.
In lieu of flowers or for those who feel they would like to make a donation in memorial of Robert, donations can be made to Kidney Cancer Canada in his name.
