Derbyshire, Dr. Jack Almquist

It is with great sorrow and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved father. Dad was called home by the angels on March 28, 2009 at the age of 73. He was loved and respected by everyone who knew him. Dad will be remembered for his compassion, generosity, kindness and for being a good person.  Dad will be lovingly remembered by his children Jackie (Rod), Cheryl (Mike), Daniel (Andrea); cherished grandchildren Michael, Kristian, and Skyla; his loving ex-wife Marg; twin brother Dick (Caroline); brother-in-law Dick (Betty); and our half-brother Miles. He will be dearly missed by all who loved him.  Dad had a distinguished career as a children’s Dentist in Calgary and was well respected amongst the profession. Despite many health set-backs, Dad always forged ahead with a positive attitude, spirit and great strength.  The family would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the staff and residents of the West View Lodge, for the outstanding care provided by all the doctors and nurses at the Hemodialysis Unit at the Sheldon Chumir, Peter Lougheed Centre, Unit 37 at Tom Baker Centre and the Chinook Hospice.  Special thanks to Dr. C. Kuzyk and Tony at Tower Drugs for their long-term commitment to Dad’s care.  A Celebration of Dad’s life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Friday, April 3, 2009 at 2:30 p.m.  Forward condolences through 








In living memory of Jack Derbyshire, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES.
