Ng, Robert (Bobby) L. – It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Bobby Ng in Edmonton on October 5th, 2011 after a brief health challenge.
Surviving Bobby are many who loved him including his wife Mary Lou, his three sons Ron (Dana), Chris (Mirabelle) and Brent, and his grandchildren Andy, Emily and Brooklyn. Bobby was the youngest of ten and is survived by three brothers: John (Toronto), Kay (Manila, Philippines) and Larry (Sydney, Australia). Those who called him a friend and a mentor will also miss our dear Bobby.
Bobby emigrated from the Philippines in 1972 where he was already a well-known television and radio personality. He was a staff announcer with CJVB in Vancouver for five years before moving to Edmonton to become an on-air host with CHQT from 1977 to 1993. Since then, Bobby has made a profound impact in many lives as the owner of BNG Pro Motion and a program facilitator for the Excellence Series.
In keeping with Bobby’s wishes, cremation has taken place and no service will be held. While flowers are gratefully declined, donations in Bobby’s name may be made to the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation online at royalalex.org or by mail to 10240 Kingsway Avenue, Edmonton T5H 3V9.
The family wishes to thank the staff of the Royal Alex (Unit 42) and the staff and volunteers at the Edmonton General Palliative Care Unit who so compassionately cared for Bobby in his final weeks.
The man with the remarkable voice has left the world a better place.
