Obituary for Robert Rosenlund
March 19, 1964 – April 7, 2017
The Rosenlund Family is deeply saddened by the passing of their husband, father, son, brother and uncle after a courageous battle with cancer. Bob was a proud member of the VFRS for 22 years, ending his career as a Captain. He was an accomplished soccer player, playing at the National level as a young man, was drafted by the New York Cosmos in 1982 and continued to play at a high level locally well into his 40s. He was also a dedicated coach in the youth ranks. His love of the beautiful game will live on in his sons. Bob is survived by his wife Lori of 31 years; sons Tyler, Matt & Cole; parents Dan & Margaret; brothers Dan, Doug (Kelly), Bill (Cathy), Dave (Katherine), sister Allison; and many nephews & nieces. Memorial Service will be held on April 20th, 2017 at the First Baptist Church, 969 Burrard St at 10am. Reception to follow at the Firefighters Club, 6515 Bonsor Ave, Burnaby.
