Koning, Robert Timothy

In Loving Memory  ROBERT TIMOTHY KONING  October 2, 1973 – March 12, 2018 
Robert Timothy Koning took his own life, left this world, and fell into the arms of his Heavenly Father on March 12, 2018. He was 44 years old.
Beloved husband of Stacey (Roach) and proud father to Ryan and Andrew. 
Predeceased by his dad, John Koning; much loved son of Audrey Koning and son-in-law of Jack Roach (Corrine). Survived by brother Walter (Linda) Koning and sister Christy (Mike) Baker; brother-in-law Steve (Tina) Roach and sister-in-law Lori Roach. Loving uncle to Eric, Byron, Simon, Daryl, Marin, Kristofer, Celine and Alli. Good friend to Richard (Nicole) Wolters and Dave Grosjean. Treasured co-worker of everyone at Premiere Truck Group in Belleville.
We are not ashamed that Robert took his life. We carry immense grief for the pain he lived with for so long and the burden only Stacey was trusted to share. We will chip away at the stigma of mental illness until everyone who suffers with this disease openly reaches for help and knows that they are not alone.
In lieu of flowers, contributions to tax-free savings accounts that have been established for Robert’s sons would be greatly appre-ciated. Cheques should be made out to Stacey Koning; e-transfers should be sent to koning1971@hotmail.com. 
Written correspondence can be sent to: Stacey Koning, 160 Hiscock Shores, RR 3, Carrying Place  ON K0K 1L0
