BONNER, Jamie Middleton

September 6, 1990 – January 26 , 2013

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Jamie Middleton Bonner, Father, loving partner, brother and son.

Jamie is survived by his cherished partner, Robyn Palik, his beautiful 8 week old baby boy, Dominik Middleton Bonner, his loving sister, Erin Bonner, and his proud parents, Bill and Debbie Bonner. He passed away in his sleep in Northern Alberta after starting a new career in the pipelining industry. Jamie was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Jake and Eva Tucker, and his paternal grandparents, Roy and Frances Bonner.

Jamie and Robyn, the love of his life, began their journey together as best friends and then as new parents. Robyn introduced Jamie to her Lloydminster family, Mom, Lola, sisters Megan, Arynn and her husband Darren, children Carsten and Elle, and her brother Ryan. Jamie was welcomed by Robyn’s family with open arms.

Jamie was known by all his friends as a guy you could count on. He helped anyone who asked. His generous spirit quickly spawned friendships. Born in Calgary, Alberta, he grew up in the community of Wildwood, attended Wildwood Elementary, Vincent Massy Jr High School, Calgary Academy, and Ernest Manning High School. Encouraged by his parents, he played numerous sports where he was always popular with his teammates. Soccer, t-ball, skiing, snow-boarding, hockey, lacrosse, football, dirt biking, mountain biking or surfing……he enjoyed them all.

His passion for football drove his desire to be fit. After playing a year of high school football, Jamie began a fitness regimen that gave him his powerful physique. He played for the Calgary Gators senior men’s football club in the Alberta Football League. The team went to the AFL Championships held in Jamie’s future spouse’s hometown, Lloydminster. In spite of losing to the hometown team, Jamie was very proud of what he and his teammates accomplished.

His generous nature was perhaps embellished by his part in a significant capital fund raising project for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Calgary. Jamie and his family were appointed the Chairing Family for the Be a Hero capital campaign for the clubs. He came to understand how important it was to offer a helping hand. His family has established a trust fund for his newborn son, Dominik. The road ahead will have many challenges, consequently support for Dominik’s future is the legacy his family hopes Jamie’s passing will provide.

Funeral Services will be held at Westside King’s Church (3939 – 69 Street S.W. Calgary, AB) on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made payable to the Jamie Bonner Family Trust can be sent to CIBC Private Wealth Management, 309 8th Ave SW, Calgary, Alberta T2P 1C6 Attn: Sara Jaeger

In living memory of Jamie Bonner a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.
