JIBB, Robert Melville
1939 - 2023
It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of Robert Melville Jibb on November 3rd at 84 years of age at the Temiskaming Hospital with his loving family by his side.
Survived by his cherished wife of 61 years, Theresa (nee Desrosiers)Jibb, son Brent (Karen) Jibb of Peterborough, and daughter Angela (Don) Parker of Englehart. Mel will be missed by his grandchildren Quincy Jibb of Peterborough, Kellen Jibb of Peterborough, Cody (Amy) Parker of Englehart, and Jacey (Ben) Parker of Englehart. He was the proud poppa of Beau and Sully Parker. He is also survived by his sister Carol (George) Clay of Whitby and many sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews.
Mel was predeceased by his parents Joe and Alice (Sherritt) Jibb.
Mel’s joy of sharing his knowledge and skills led him to become a teacher and Principal for the Temiskaming Board of Education for over 30 years. He retired in 1995 which gave him more time to do the things he loved which included fishing, spending time at the cottage, visiting the casino, and being with family and friends.
Mel leaves behind a legacy of love, laughter, and many cherished memories that will help us during this difficult time. He was as proud of his family as we were of him.
The family would like to thank Dr. Corbeil, her team, Kid, and all of the staff who helped make Mel’s month long stay at the hospital comfortable.
Cremation has been arranged with Timiskaming Funeral Cooperative and a Celebration of Life will be held in the spring. If desired, donations can be made to the Temiskaming Hospital or a charity of your choice. Temiskaming Hospital Foundation
