We are profoundly saddened by the passing of Rob Dionne, physiotherapist at the Niagara Orthopaedic Institute. On May 23, 2016, Rob passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his loved ones.
Rob was one of the most genuine, charismatic, and charming individuals. He devoted his life to helping others, made it his mission to make sure everyone had a smile on their face - he was the epitome of special. He impacted a lot of people, and whether you knew Rob for 10 minutes ...or for 10 years, you could easily see how wonderful a person he truly was.
There are many ways in which we can remember Rob - whether it be for his love of golf, music, or the cottage; the Montreal Canadians, the Buffalo Bills, or the Toronto Blue Jays; or his work as a physiotherapist - we can all appreciate and will never forget how much enthusiasm he had for life.
We are forever thankful for everything Rob has taught us and everything he has inspired us to do. He is one of the strongest individuals we have ever come to know, and words cannot express how much Rob is loved and will be missed - as a son, a brother, an uncle, a friend, and physiotherapist.
We have not lost Rob. Because if you lose someone you don't know where they are - but we know exactly where he is, and he is with each and every one of us.
We love you Rob.
