Robert Sylvestre Mau, aged 73 years, passed away in St. Joseph
Hospice on Sunday, July 19, 2015 after a lengthy illness.
Robert was born in Pembroke Ontario to Ed and Blanche Mau on August
28, 1941. He started his working career in Pembroke at a TV station
and then moved to Kitchener, Ontario, where he spent five years
working at another TV station. Robert then came to Thunder Bay where
he joined Confederation College, working in the broadcasting
program. It was here that he formed many lasting relationships
throughout his 30 year career.
Robert was exceedingly talented in many areas and enjoyed fixing
things as well as taking on new projects. He always made himself
available to help anyone in need.
While Robert really enjoyed fishing, watching hockey and
woodworking, his real passion was spending time with his family,
especially his grandchildren.

52 years, Barbara; daughter Cassandra Rosdobutko (Jamey) and son
Kevin (Caroline); grandchildren, Steven, Kristen (Ryan), Ryan,

Linda (Roger) and Brenda (Peter). Numerous nieces, nephews and other
relatives also survive.

family service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations made to
