Robert Basil "Rob" Lenihan


Robert Basil "Rob" Lenihan

It is with heavy hearts the family of Robert Basil "Rob" Lenihan, of Centreville, announce his untimely passing on Wednesday, May 11, 2022 in Valley Regional Hospital, Kentville at the age of 56. Born in Kentville, he was a son of Basil and Joan (Keddy) Lenihan, of New Ross.

Rob worked for Michelin for many years, retiring in 2020. After retirement, he continued to work for Michelin as a contractor. He loved working outdoors and keeping busy. He and Crystal went on many hikes together, exploring nature and the great outdoors. He always looked forward to his Friday and Saturday card nights with family and friends and enjoyed listening to music. He could spend hours listening to classic rock. Above all else, he loved his wife and his boys. His sons were the most important part of his world and everything he did was always with them in mind. He would do anything for Crystal, Devin and Aaron, and his love for them was surmounting.

Rob will be deeply missed by his parents, Basil and Joan Lenihan; the love of his life, Crystal (Dempsey); his boys, Devin and Aaron Lenihan; sister, Kathrine Williams (Delbert Sawler); father-in-law, Richard Dempsey; sisters-in-law, Leah (Eric) Johnston and Tara (Kevin) Ward; brother-in-law, Keith Curley; several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins; and many friends and co-workers.

Rob was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Webster and Jean Lenihan; maternal grandparents, Emmett and Ellen Keddy; and mother-in-law, Donna Dempsey.

Cremation has taken place. In keeping with Rob’s wishes there will be no visitation.
