Image 1
It is with great sadness in our hearts, that our family is having to announce the peaceful passing of Robert "Bob" Cudden, in North York, Ontario at the age of 85 years. He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Anne McQueen, whom he loved dearly. He will be sadly missed by his four children and their spouses: Robert Jr. & Yvonne, Ann & Charlie, Philip & Ayn, and Aileen & Mike; and fondly remembered by his grandchildren Thomas, Kaylee, Jenna, Tara, Talon, Sheryl and his great-niece Kate. Bob was born in County Meath, Ireland on May 1, 1933 to Charles and Ellen Cudden (nee Sheekey). He was the fourth of eleven children, and is predeceased by his brothers Harry, Jimmy, Charlie. He will be missed by siblings Pat, Mary, George, Tom, Phil, Claire and Ann, and all of their families. He was also fondly regarded by all of his in-laws from both marriages, friends from career and church, and friends of his children, whom he always welcomed into his home. At the age of 18, he left home to pursue a Structural Engineering Degree in England, and later moved to Canada, where he met and married Mary, and had four children together. After being widowed, he gave his heart to Anne McQueen, through their marriage in 1988, and together they shared their passions for good food, fine arts and the Catholic church. Over the course of his career as a structural engineer, he travelled the world working in many places that included Romania, China, Japan, Australia and Indonesia. Following his retirement, he studied holistic nutrition and volunteered at North York General Hospital. Visitation at the PAUL O'CONNOR FUNERAL HOME, 1939 Lawrence Ave. E.
