Condolence: We just wanted you to know that we were thinking of you during this period where Uncle Bobby displayed more courage than most people ever could. He was a wonderful man, and he will be missed.
Condolence: My thoughts are with all of you during this time... Mr. Markall was my gr. 5 & 6 teacher @ CD Howe, and every time I passed him in the hallway... without fail, he would be dancing, snapping his fingers with a huge grin on his face... he will be missed... Lindsay
Condolence: I am very sorry to you and your family for your loss. Mr. Markall was my teacher at CD Howe and he was my favorite. He was a wonderful teacher and a great human being. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
I embrace the opportunity to pay my respects to a wonderful man that has touched so many hearts, as well as my own. Whether as a coach or as a friend, Bob will always be remembered by me as a kind and fair gentleman that was full of life's energy and possessed a winning edge.
For your loss, I am regretfully sorry. Dallas, my heart goes out to you.
Hopefully one day, through research, we will find a cure.

Condolence: Dear Leslie Dallas and Quinn
We would like to extend our condolences, love and prayers to you at this very difficult time. Although we are unable to be in attendance today our hearts and spirits are certainly there with you.Losing Bob was like losing a family member for us, he touched our lives that much. It is difficult to know what to say at a time like this but we thought we would express some of the many special memories we have of Bob.
First of all, one could not miss the fact that Bob had an unlimited love for all three of you and for all of his family. This was very evident in his every action as we wathed our families grow and mature over the last thirty years.
Secondly, Bob had an unlimited zest for life.No matter what the occation , he always wanted to party and dance just a little bit longer; he always wanted to play with the kids and maybe keep them up just a little bit longer; on long walks, picnics or visits to camp, he always wanted it to go on just a little bit longer; and on the ski hills he would always want to make one more run so the day would last just a little bit longer. That was always Bob markall, squeeze every last second out of everything that he so loved and cherished.
Thirdly, we could not help but notice that Bob had the weirdest and most loveable sense of humour of anyone that we ever knew.You would never know what to expect at any given time at any given event but one thing was always certain, he would make you laugh or smile or sometimes very angry, right Quinn?
And finally, we do not know of anyone who could have faced his situation with any more courage , determination, strength and sheer will than Bob Markall.He fought with all of his being for as long as he possibly could.
That is how we will remember Bob. He will live on in us and in everyone that knew and loved him.
