For all Rob’s friends and CMG fans who have been asking how/when they can pay their respects, here are the details.
Visitation with family will take place at the R.S. Kane Funeral Home (6150 Yonge St., Toronto, ON, www.rskane.ca) from 11:30 AM to 2 PM on Thursday, May 19. Visitors are reminded that this is to be a time of respect — you’ll have your chance to show up in your Mad Bastard costume at the pub night later.
The memorial service for Editor ‘Arris will take place at the R.S. Kane Funeral Home at noon on Saturday. Like Thursday’s visiting hours, this is open to all.
On Saturday evening, starting at 6 PM, we’re having another CMG Pub Night in honour of Editor ‘Arris at the Bull and Firkin, scene of many a similar CMG event in the past! The Bull and Firkin is at 1835 Yonge Street, Toronto, just south of Davisville. We’re looking forward to reuniting with the CMG faithful here.
For east coast friends unable to make it to Toronto this weekend, there will be an opportunity for you to pay your respects in Sackville. We will share those details when possible, but arrangements have not been finalized yet.
The family is very grateful to all thoughts and comments that have been expressed and left online. If you have a memory of Rob to share, please continue to post them to the CMG memorial articles, or to the CMG Facebook page.
As well, friends of Rob may wish to click here to listen to an interview by CBC Radio 1 with Rob’s friend, and sometimes collaborator, Mark Richardson. The family wants to thank him for his help with the interview, which you can hear at this link.
Finally, we’ve had several people asking how they can contribute to Rob’s daughters, Cate and Chloe. Family friends are working on setting up a trust fund for them. We’ll share details when they’re available.
We have set up a fund in trust for Rob Harris’ children Chloe (7) and Cate (8).
