Rob Greensides

It is with profound sadness the family announces the passing of Robert Ernest Greensides, age 57, of Assiniboia, SK. Rob, affectionally known as Greener, was born on October 29, 1964, in Sydney, Nova Scotia to Robert and Gladys (nee Fiander) Greensides. He was the eldest of two children. The family moved west residing in Saskatchewan and for a brief time in Alberta. Assiniboia would become Rob’s forever home, completing his education at Assiniboia Composite High School (Class of 1982). He worked for Crossroads, CP Rail, GW Rail and the past twenty years at Nelson GM. Rob was a valued employee and an exceptional sales manager.

Rob was a sports fanatic, from player, to coach, to spectator. Ball, hockey, golf curling, and football, he loved them all. Many fond memories were had playing slow-pitch with the CP Track Rats, going to Rider games, Nascar races, watching hockey, and cheering on his New York Rangers with great enthusiasm. Rob and Bev also loved spending time at the lake and fishing.

Rob was a passionate volunteer and actively involved in his community. He served as the president of the Assiniboia Golf Course and was Co-Chair of the host committee for the Provincial Tankard and the Scotties Tournament of Hearts. He was proud to be part of the Southern Cruisers Car Club and enjoyed helping out with the local parades and showing his prized yellow Corvette.

Tragically, Rob passed away on Monday, April 25, 2022. Rob will be remembered for his zest for life, his infectious yet mischievous smile, and his commitment to his family, friends and community.

Rob is survived by his spouse Bev Dean and sister Penni Greensides. He is predeceased by his parents Robert and Gladys Greensides and Bev’s parents Merle and Edna (nee Howe) Dean.
