Condolence From: Douglas Price
Condolence: I as a Cobalt High School alumnus and one of Bob's students was sad and dismayed to read of his passing.
Robert Marvin was a credit to the teaching profession. As you can see from previous condolences the positive impressions he left in his students and the people who knew him are his lasting legacy.

Condolence From: Roger Maloney
Condolence: Most sincere condolences to Bob's many friends and family. My memories of Bob begin with this bear of a man standing before our class reading John Keats with tears in his eyes. I never went home to Cobalt without looking him up. My final memory is standing in his door at Extendicare hearing him say "God bless you".
So, God bless you Bob. Rest in peace old friend.

Condolence From: Harry Burton
Condolence: A great Teacher.

2) At the end of class, Bob loved to say

GET OUT OF MY CLASS, YOU HORRIBLE PEOPLE. He always had a big smile on his face when he said that.

3) Another GEM from Bob.

This was a take-off on La Marseillaise, the French National Anthem. I am sure this would infuriate any French citizens. It was sung to the same tune as La Marseillaise

Jean Pierre went to the Lavatoire
Pour to have ze CRAP.
When he reached for the Papiere on the Wall
There was no Papiere there at all.

Ou est La Papiere
Ou est La Papiere

4) He always told the class that

His Ambition in LIFE was, at the age of 90, to be shot by a jealous husband, as Bob climbed out a bedroom window.

When I realize how conservative our class was, I realize that Bob was pushing back our conservatism.

Condolence: To Mr. Marvin's family and friends, my sincere condolences on the loss of your loved one.
I will remember him, with the phrase he sometimes used when he was our teacher at Cobalt High School, as "A Gentleman and a Scholar".

Condolence From: Miranda Allen
Condolence: Dear Uncle Robert,I miss you, your great sense of humour.I miss your intelligence. We were always excited when Robert would come and visit.He loved to try new things.I loved his excitement for Opera, not so much football.He showed us his amazing pictures of his adventures in the great north.He was very good looking man;all the Marvins were attractive, educated,well versed and they all certainly contributed to our society. My mother is very sad Robert was her little brother who she helped take care of as the Marvins were orphans at a very young age.An amazing,wonderful human being.

You are still with me,Miranda1

Condolence From: Rosanne de Vries Fisher
Condolence: As you can read in all the condolences, Mr. Marvin left a lasting impression on everyone who knew him; even those he did not teach.

My deceased husband spoke of him often.

I have missed seeing him on his daily trek between Cobalt and New Liskeard, but will always think of him as I drive that route.

It was a shock to see him at Extendicare, and a shock to hear of his passing.

My sincere condolences to all his family and friends.

Condolence From: Dale & Linda Johnston
Condolence: Oh Bob, what wonderful memoties You have left with Linda & I. We both go back to the good old Cobalt High School Days, where you taught. During the World Series back in the 60's You would actually bring in a TV and we would all watch the Ball game. I remember you cheering me on during the hockey and broomball games. You were a wonderful man. I always made a point to seek you out, whenever I came back to Cobalt. We would have a pint or two and discuss the situation in the World. You left a positive impression on all who knew You. I will miss You my dear Friend.
May the Great Spirit be with You and I'm sure You will soar with the Eagles in the wild blue yonder.
