Bob is also survived by his very close companion Ethel Graham of Salmon Arm. Bob was born in Royal Inland Hospital, Kamloops, BC, to Thomas Joseph and Margaret Hamilton Wilcox on April 30, 1922. In 1928, Bob began his education at St. Ann’s Academy in Kamloops. The family moved to the Cahilty Ranch in December 1930. Bob continued his education at Upper Louis Creek School and left home seeking work in 1938. In the summer of 1940, Bob along with his brother Joe, joined the Canadian Scottish (Princess Mary’s) Regiment and was shipped overseas in late 1941. He participated in the Sicily landing and on D-Day his unit was among the first ashore on Juno/Sword beach. Bob served in numerous engineering capacities throughout the European campaign. Upon his discharge, Bob was heading home when he met Eva Bartlett in Barriere. They were married on April 18, 1949 and resided in Kamloops for 42 years.

In that time, he raised three boys and spent his time devoted to his family and their various pursuits, from sports to Boy Scouts. Bob and Eva were Lifetime members of the Royal Canadian Legion, serving in many positions. After his retirement in 1982, Bob and Eva continued to pursue their love of travel, with trips to Europe and Mexico. They moved to Abbotsford in 1993 and finally settled in Salmon Arm in 2003.

We’re on the net at ACKERMAN ROSE MARGARET 1939 - 2012 Margaret Rose Ackerman, of Prince George B.C., passed away peacefully, with family by her side, on November 21, 2012. Marg was born to Maud and Wilfred Schulz on September 12, 1939, in Trail, B.C., and grew up in Salmon Arm. She was married to Wayne Ackerman for 21 years prior to their separation. She worked for B.C. Corrections for over 20 years, before retiring in 1998.

Marg was an active volunteer for Meals on Wheels and the Elder Citizens Recreational Association in Prince George, and she enjoyed exploring the world both close to home and far away. She loved animals and also volunteered time to the SPCA. Marg was creative and curious and, following her retirement, she developed a keen interest in genealogy, dabbled in painting, and constantly enjoyed updating and improving her home and garden. Marg’s family would like to thank the doctors and staff at University Hospital of Northern BC for the level of care provided.
