Robert Wallace Barclay September 11th, 1955 – June 12th, 2019

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our dear friend Robert “Rob” Barclay. Rob was a very passionate member of the TTSAO and served various positions on the board throughout the years including 3 three 2 year terms president. Rob’s commitment to safer roads saw him lobby for the now implemented MELT program in Ontario. Rob proudly sat as co- founder of Crossroads Truck Training Academy where he delighted in molding new drivers into the very best that they could be. Rob’s reach was far and wide in the industry and he will be sorely missed. 

Ken Adams
Chairman of the Board TTSAO

Robert Barclay

Rob passed away Wednesday, June 12th, 2019 at the age of 63, peacefully, at home, with his loving wife by his side.
Rob was born on September 11th, 1955 in Toronto, Ontario. He is predeceased by his parents, Martha (Nimmo) and Robert Barclay. Rob was a beloved brother of Brenda (Trevor) Eugent, Gord (Karen) Barclay, and Doreen (Andy) Harris. He will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews, and great nieces and nephews. Rob was a cherished friend, for 50 years, and beloved husband to Pamela Livingston. He was a loving Step-Father to Mackenzie (Krystal) Mercer, and Jay Mercer.
Rob lived an exciting life. He lived in Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia and Scotland, making many friendships, memories, and having great adventures, all throughout his life. He was an extraordinary person, who led an exciting and multifaceted life – he was a Master Yachtsman, a business person, a guitar pickin’ cowboy, and a musician. He lived a well-loved life and will be missed by many friends and family.
For those wishing, donations may be made to the Canadian Lung Association or the Canadian Heart and Stroke Association in Rob’s memory.
