November 19, 1949 – April 24, 2013
Richard “Rick” Stanley Peter Dreja of Calgary, passed away on Wednesday, April 24, 2013 at the age of 63 years.
Rick was born on November 19, 1949 in Coleman, AB and was raised there. He attended the University of Calgary, working in the coal mines to pay for his schooling. Rick worked for many years in the housing industry in Calgary, with twenty-six of those years in management with CMHC. He was a gregarious man with a clever wit. Everyone who knew him has a “Rick story” to tell, always with a laugh.
Richard is survived by his wife of thirty-one years Shirley Dreja of Kelowna, BC; daughters Michelle Campbell (Aaron) of Calgary, AB, Danielle Kozak (Adam) of Vancouver, BC and Lora Dreja of Las Vegas, NV; brother Zane Dreja (Cindy) of Oakville, ON; sister Donna Zadnik (Dave) of Lethbridge, AB; and grandchildren, Tanner, Madison and Mackenzie.
