We have hesitated posting this in fear that it would make it a reality. As we found-out as a club on Tuesday via Zoom that Bob Cairns had passed, so many of us cried. Some cried tears of true sorrow at the loss of a truly genuine, kind, caring, impactful man. Yet, even in this time of sadness we had tears of happiness. Memories that we shared with Bob, times when he pushed us to be better, and inspired us to be more. Bob truly epitomizes Rotary to his core. His dedication and passion for helping and serving will forever have its mark on our club. We are forever indebted to this man for all he has taught us about being better for our community here in South Kitsap and to the far reaches of the globe. Our hearts are with Chris, and the rest of Bob's family. We look forward to the day when we can all come together to give this great, great man the celebration of life he deserves. We will forever be yours in Rotary Bob, rest in Peace.
Bob asked that in lieu of flowers or other gifts anyone wishing to honor his memory donate to the Chris and Bob Cairns Scholarship fund. This fund will be used to provide scholarships to children in Eastern Africa who would not otherwise be able to continue their education beyond primary school.
