Obituary of Rev. Robert Charles Ohsberg
67 of Sackville NS, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday March 3, 2020. He was the much loved son of Wilma and the late Oliver Ohsberg.
Bob met his wife Nancy while at Acadia and they have shared their life for 45 years. He was a proud and loving father to Karissa (Steve) Pilkington, Ian (Katie) and Victoria. He was 'Bobby' to his grandchildren Roman, Oliver, Ezra, Harlow, and Simon. They adored him and the feeling was mutual! In addition to his immediate family, he is survived by his sister and brother-in-law, Lynn and Larry Pearce, nephew Stephen, niece Erika and their families.
Bob received his BA in Psychology from Acadia University. He worked in Saint John as a family court counsellor before sensing God's call into pastoral ministry. He attended Bethel Seminary in Minnesota(MDiv) and then served with wonderful people in Maugerville/Lakeville Corner Baptist Churches, Elmsdale Baptist, Murray Harbour Baptist and Bedford Baptist. In his retirement he and Nancy have enjoyed attending Grace Chapel. You could always find Bob with a smile and ready to crack a terrible joke or to help out however he could. For a number of years he was a volunteer firefighter. He was a recently minted handyman and reluctantly took on a number of household renovations. He volunteered at Beacon House, enjoyed his friends at ESL, delivered food for Meals on Wheels, and participated in various Bible studies. Bob dedicated his life to Jesus and to helping other people in their faith journey.
