Bob Paris was born in Vancouver, the son of proud Basque immigrants from France. Predeceased by his wife Sylvia, he is survived by his siblings, Charlie, Ray and Andree (Galbraith), children Teresa (Michel Cote), Michele (Rob Fleming), Dan (Catherine Berardi) and Julie, grandchildren Renee-Catherine, Quinn, Kevin, Paris and Laurence (Lolo) and a large, extended family.

Bob graduated from UBC in 1953, then attended medical school at Laval University in Quebec City. As a pediatrician, he was a kind and caring doctor to generations of children and a comfort to many new and nervous parents. Bob loved a good game of bridge and, until late in life, regularly beat his kids and grandkids at Shanghai Rummy.

A funeral will be held on Saturday June 8th,2019 at 11am, at St. John the Apostle Church, 5457 Trafalgar Street, Vancouver.
