September 20, 1943 – North Battleford, SK
July 6, 2014 – Calgary, AB
Garth Eger passed away peacefully at Rockyview General Hospital on Sunday, July 6, 2014 at the age of 70 years, following an extended illness.
Garth will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by many, including his wife, Micki; his beloved children, David and Janet; the lights of his life – his grandchildren – Ben and Megan Eger; his brother Cameron (Lois) Eger, his brother-in-law Glenn Cox (Kay), and his friends and extended family. He was predeceased by his parents George and Doris, and his brother Doug.
Born in North Battleford, Garth attended The Athol Murray College of Notre Dame, and the University of Saskatchewan prior moving to Calgary in 1965. His career in real estate was well-suited to his warm and outgoing personality, while his love of friendly competition and his keen mind allowed him to attain his Life Master designation in bridge, which he enjoyed as a lifelong pursuit.
