BRUBAKER – Herbert Allen

July 20, 1936 – July 12, 2011

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our husband, father and grandfather, Herb Brubaker, on Tuesday, July 12, 2011, after a lengthy struggle with various health problems at the age of 74 years.

Over the last forty years, Herb and Joan have fostered many children and he enjoyed being “Dad” to these young people. In 1987, Herb retired from Shell Canada Ltd. after twenty seven years of service.

Herb is survived by his wife of fifty years, Joan, son Doug, daughter Cheryl, two “special” sons Sterling and Devin, four grandchildren Jennifer (Steve), Sasha, Aaron and Cheyenne, sister-in-law Florence.

He was predeceased by his parents Wilbur and Florence and a brother Harvey.

At Herb’s request, there will not be a funeral service.

Due to allergies, in lieu of flowers, in honour of Herb’s memory, we invite you to perform a random act of kindness.

Forward condolences through Our sincere thanks to all the medical staff who were involved with Herb’s care through the years, especially the many wonderful doctors and nurses at the Rockyview Hospital, units 74, 58 and 59 for the kind and gentle care given to Herb and family in his final weeks.

In living memory of Herbert Brubaker, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Eastside Memorial Chapel, 5388 MEMORIAL DRIVE N.E. Telephone: (403) 248-8585.
