DAVIDSON, Robert “Bob”

Robert Notman Davidson, Jr.,

November 6, 1950 – September 7, 2020

New Sarepta, Alberta – aka “Bicycle Bob”, (69). Bob slipped peacefully into eternity following a brief illness. We are truly grateful for the doctors, nurses, and hospital staff of Grey Nuns Community Hospital in Edmonton who cared for my dad before his passing.

He was preceded in death by his loving parents, Robert Notman Davidson, Sr. and Ethel McCull Davidson. Bob had one brother Bill Neish of Edinburgh, Scotland and his sister, Helen Allan (nee Davidson) of Toronto Ontario; along with numerous nieces and nephews. Robert was born in Dundee, Scotland and immigrated to Canada on May 29, 1956. Bob was definitely proud of his Scottish heritage.

He is survived by his beloved son, Luke Mastervick (a former Ontarian, resides now in Macon, Georgia); daughter-in-law, Racara, and beautiful grandchildren, Jadelyn and Whitley (Davidson) Mastervick. Bob was well known in the community and had an affinity for bikes and his dogs, with a huge heart for all animals and animal advocacy. Down through the years, God richly blessed Bob with many friends who provided and cared for him in a variety of invaluable and immeasurable ways.

A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday,  September 17, 2020 at 2:00 pm at Zion Evangelical Missionary Church, New Sarepta, Alberta (5058 2nd Street, New Sarepta, AB).

In lieu of flowers please feel free to make a donation to the Edmonton Humane Society or to the SPCA of Alberta.

Bob lived on range road 222, down the road from us. He would often stop at our gate to visit and always had a story to tell or some local news to share. He was interested in our family and always had a kind word for our daughter. We would often pick him up and give him a ride to town or to his place. Good bye old friend.

Bob lived down the road from us. we would see him walk by our place on his way to town, sometimes he would stop by the gate and we would talk and always asked us how we were doing he always had a kind word for my daughter Chelsey. I will miss him. rest in peace my friend

Kim Thompson

I was trying to figure out how long I’ve know Bob and I’m sure I was about 16 and working at Out 2 Lunch and Bob was a customer. Many many years later Bob was again a customer but this time at Small Town Spirits. Everyone knew Bob… I mean bicycle Bob. Sometimes he challenged us, and thats what set him apart. I always laughed when Bob would come into town and Marty his dog followed. He would be SO mad and Marty was always so patient and adorable and followed Bob around until it was time to go home. Rest Easy Bob you deserve it.

Bob was definitely one of a kind! He genuinely cared about everyone- even when given a hard time. R.I.P.

Dana and Bill McFaull

Bob lived down the road from us and we drove him home or to town whenever we saw him. We loved his easy going nature and his sense of humor. He and I shared many a laugh over the years. We also shared his love of animals and many times he would stop at the gate and talk to me about my dogs, horses and cows or would stop and talk to them and pat them. He was a great human being and I know many people in the community will miss him. We are truly saddened to hear of his passing.
