Dr. Robert Snihura

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Robert (Bob) Snihura on Saturday, Aug. 7, 2021 at the age of 77.

Beloved husband of Lisa, his devoted and loving wife of nearly 54 years. Loving father to daughter Andrea (Jason D’Anna) and son Adrian (Adrianna), and grandfather to Olenka. Bob was predeceased by his parents, John and Mary Snihura, and by his sister, Irene Kostuk. Bob will be dearly missed by his brother, Dr. Nestor Snihura, and his sister, Olga Glionna. He will also be dearly missed by sister-in-law Luba Zaraska and brother-in-law Eugene Zaraska.

Bob graduated from the University of Toronto medical school in 1969 and then specialized in internal medicine. He started his medical career as a member of the division of internal medicine at St. Michael’s Hospital, where he remained on staff for more than 20 years. Bob then transitioned to a career as chief medical director at Crowne Life, Canada Life, and RBC.

Bob was a caring and devoted physician, an excellent teacher, generous with his time, and always displayed a great sense of humour. The family will organize a celebration of life in the near future.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Southlake Regional Health Centre, where Bob received excellent medical care over the years. Share condolences online
