Robert Shawn Barrett
July 27, 1973 – October 20, 2020
Heaven gained an angel on October 20, 2020 as our son, brother, uncle and father went home to be with the Heavenly Father. Robert passed away at Toronto General Hospital surrounded by the love of his family. Son of Carol Barrett (Orest) and Bob Barrett (Donna). Brother of Billie Jo Barrett and Ryan Barrett. Uncle of Marlee Moscati and father to the love of his life Kinsley Lynn Barrett.
Robert knew life would be short from an early age due to his congenital heart condition. He never took anything for granted and lived each day to the fullest. Robert had his struggles along the way but he was nothing short of a fighter. The way he died is just like the way he lived: he wrote his own rules, he fought authority and he paved his own path. He lived 1000 years in the 47 calendar years.
Anyone who knew Robert knew he had a generous heart, an infectious smile and a charismatic personality. As much as people knew hanging out with him could possibly end in a night in jail or a killer hangover, he was the type of guy that people would drive 16 hours at the drop of a dime to come see.
He loved his sports and spent a lot of time talking baseball with his momma and hockey with is sister. Oh, how he loved his Pro-Line and the OLG loved him equally.
Roberts’s hope was that his last adventure would be to rent a RV and travel through Western Canada with his sister, niece and daughter where he spent many years and was most at peace. Although Robert won’t be able to go on this trip, his family have every intention on living out his dream. He will be with them in their hearts.
Those we love
don’t go away,
they walk beside us
every day.
Unseen, unheard
but always near,
so loved, so missed,
so very dear.

I was lucky enough to be a part of Rob's life for many years from 1987 when I moved to Prout Drive. He looked out for me.. many times like a big brother, and always included me like one of the guys. We shared many many memories growing up, trials and tribulations. Many trips, concerts from Ontario all the way to B.C. , I love the eulogy from the bottom of my heart ❤. He was definitely most at peace in the west coast and I will forever cherish being one of those friends that got to enjoy his company out there as well as many years in the B-Dot. Deepest condolences to the family. Rob you will be forever loved and missed for your one of a kind charisma peace out, Tera Lynn Colville 🙏 💔

I've know Rob since 1987 back in our St. Stephens Elementary days. We bonded quickly over our love of sports. Whoever wrote that fantastic obituary was bang on! Saw him have plenty of run ins with teachers, but always came out smelling like roses somehow. Still hung out with him into our thirties. Always looking for a laugh and a good time. For those who grew up with him, you know what I mean when I say Rob was Rob, but had one of the best sense of humors I've ever known and definitely had a heart of gold. Gone way too soon. My sincerest condolences to his family.
