Gary Bobson, beloved husband of Marjorie Bobson of Calgary, passed away on Monday, February 19, 2007 at the age of 70 years.
Gary was born on May 30, 1936 and grew up in Calgary. In 1954 he joined the RCAF where he dedicated twenty years and then took early retirement. In 1977 he began teaching in the Department of Electronics at SAIT, a career that he found both fulfilling and gratifying. In 1982, Gary had the honour of being Worshipful Master of Mount Lebanon Masonic Lodge. Gary loved the outdoors, especially the mountains. It was the hiking, golfing, cross-country skiing, and camping that gave Gary the most pleasure. His fondest memories included the cruise he took with Marj to Alaska and the time spent at Radium.
He leaves behind his loving wife of fifty years Marjorie; and three daughters and two sons-in-law, Teresa and Ted Emmett, Kim Bobson, Sandy and Rob Leiper; and five grandchildren, Danielle, Teddy, Christopher, Stephanie, and Robbie. He is also survived by a sister Dorothy (Gerry) Webster. He was predeceased by his father Willard; his mother Carrie; and his step-father Harold Leslie.
