MAYLIN, Robert Edwin


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Robert (Bob) Maylin on January 17, 2019 after a courageous battle with myelodysplastic syndrome. He died peacefully at home surrounded by his family and friends. Beloved husband to Marilyn (nee Bridge). Devoted dad to Robin (Stuart) Hill and Kevin Maylin. Adored Poppa to Calvin and Fraser (Amanda). Dear brother to George (Kathy) Maylin. Robert lived for his family and loved us all very much. He will be remembered for his storytelling, great gardening skills and huge talent as a woodworker and especially his wood carvings which are loved by many. Robert worked for over 40 years for American Can/Ball Packaging and retired from the Hamilton plant. At Robert’s request private cremation will take place. In lieu of flowers, donations to Credit Valley Hospital Cancer Centre (C/O Trillium Health Partners) or the Townsend Smith Foundation (hospice)  would be appreciated by the family.
