Robert ‘Bob’ Dupuis Death | Obituary – WC Terry Fox Run founder Robert ‘Bob’ Dupuis passed away Tuesday, July 7, 2020.
Dupuis, 84, born April 25, 1936, was one of Constance Bay’s most active community members. Dupuis was a Constance Buckham’s Bay Community Association (CBBCA) board member as recently as 2017 as well as from 2010 to 2012. Dupuis was a secretary for the Sandhills Seniors’ Club (as well as other positions), a Constance Bay Bridge Club instructor, a member of the St. Gabriel Roman Catholic Church executive, a life member and past president of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 616 and the co-founder of the West Carleton Terry Fox Run.
“He is one of those people who was widely engaged over his lifetime,” CBBCA President Len Russell told West Carleton Online this morning (July 10). “Bob was always volunteering somewhere to accomplish some altruistic purpose.”
Good friend, regular volunteer partner and 20-year Constance Bay resident Marlene Vollmer agrees.
“He’s been involved in so many things and I’ve known him for so long,” Vollmer told West Carleton Online today (July 10). “We became good friends.”
Vollmer met Dupuis approximately 15 years ago while both were on the St. Gabriel’s executive, but their friendship blossomed when she decided to learn how to play bridge with the Constance Bay club.
Of all the things Dupuis was involved with, the Terry Fox Run was the closest to his heart.
We express our sympathy and deepest condolences to Dupuis’s family today and in the days, weeks, months, and years that are to come as they cope with his passing.
