Robert (Bob) Gould

Robert (Bob) Gould, 73, passed away on July 20, 2017 holding the hands of his wife Celine Gould at the family home in Nanoose Bay, B.C.

He was born in High Prairie, Alberta, Canada on April 17, 1944.

In his own special way, Bob has changed the lives of many. Whether a ride up the River or an argument given, Bob would not shy from any. With a moustached grin and piercing blue eyes, he made you feel important.

Bob Gould was a true pioneer of the lower Stikine River and a forever patriot. He was a kinsman to all who believed in the sustainability of our natural resources. Bob had a no nonsense, no bullshit approach to stewardship and stood by the importance of international agreements. Regardless of political stripes, Bob's vision was always directed towards all stewards of the Mighty Stikine; join hands to protect our Great River and leave a bounty of resources thriving for many generations to come.  

He is survived by three children (Jenny, Danielle, and Kevin), five grandchildren (Alyson, Matthew, Grace, Liliana, and Dylan), and countless young men and women who were adopted to the Stikine River. 

In lieu of flowers or cards please consider a donation to the Great Glacier Provincial Park through BC Parks Enhancement Fund. A plaque and memorial structure will be raised in his honor later this summer. A Celebration of Life and

spreading of the ashes will be held at the Great Glacier Park, Friday, August 18, 2017.
