Bob Mulvihill

Major Daniel Robert “Bob” Mulvihill CD (RCAF, Retired) died peacefully at home in Ottawa on May 25 2018, one day shy of his 76th birthday.

Uncle Bob will be fondly remembered by his many nieces, nephews and great nieces and great nephews and the large extended Rowe and Mulvihill families; and especially by his goddaughter Janet and her sister Alison Burton.

Bob was born on May 26 1942 in Renfrew Ontario to Agnes (née Kubiseski) and Leo Mulvihill, and after attending preparatory year at Collège militaire royal de Saint-Jean, Quebec (CMR) in 1961 he graduated from the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario (RMC), in 1965, first in his class in Electrical Engineering. He had a varied career with the RCAF and Canadian Forces Air Command, first as a navigator and a pilot with 416 and 409 squadrons flying CF-101 Voodoos, then as jet conversion flight instructor, a flight safety officer, commander of Canadian Forces recruiting centre in Hamilton, and on two exchange tours with the USAF in California and with NORAD in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Returning to Canada, he retired from the Military in 1995 and joined the civil service working as a System Engineering Manager for the Canadian Search and Rescue Helicopter Project, which established the Cormorant as a Canadian Forces’ sea and air search and rescue helicopter.

Bob was well known to his friends and family as someone who could build or fix anything, and his help and advice was often sought and generously given. He was an avid outdoorsman who greatly enjoyed hunting and fishing, and loved spending time at the cottage in PEI, and playing with his grandchildren and great nieces and nephews. He had a particular love of children, who universally reciprocated, seeing in him a kindred spirit. Bob was also an active and dedicated member of the Ottawa Traditional Fiddle and Folk Art Society and past-president of the NDHQ Fish and Game Club.
