KALINCHUK, Jordan Robert

May 11, 1990 – Edmonton, Alberta
May 3, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with broken hearts and great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved son Jordan on May 3, 2014 at the age of 23 years. He passed peacefully surrounded by this loving presence of his family.

Jordan lived his life to the fullest each day. Jordan experienced so much in 23 years that many people will not experience in a life time. Jordan’s love for family and friends also extended to the outdoors and adventures.

He leaves to mourn his father, Bob; mother, Ruby; brother, Peter; and precious extended family and friends. He was predeceased by his Guido John; Grandfather Art; Baba Olga; and his much loved best four legged family member Sharkey.

Relatives and friends are invited to Prayers and Tributes at St. Mary’s Catholic Church Cochrane (Corner of Highway 22 and River Heights Drive); on Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

Funeral Services will be held at St. Mary’s Catholic Church Cochrane (Corner of Highway 22 and River Heights Drive); on Thursday, May 8, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, please donate to “Jordan Kalinchuk Trust Fund in support of U of C outdoor centre”. Donations will be accepted at any RBC in Alberta.

In living memory of Jordan Kalinchuk, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Cochrane Funeral Home, 369 RAILWAY STREET, COCHRANE. Telephone: (403) 932-4740.

    Hi Ruby, Bob, and Peter,

    I wanted to send my condolences, I probably have a couple of times and I probably will many more. I just wanted to let you know that I know you are amazing parents, and I can’t imagine what you have experienced. The lessons you taught him, which have impacted everyone around him, are really something special. You should be proud of yourselves.

    I am in Saskatoon now, but I promise to keep in touch, I will always have a connection with you as the years go on because Jordan was so special to me. You will always be in my heart. I will see you soon. Don’t be afraid to call me and visit anytime Ruby 🙂

    Jordan will be forever remembered by his “fabulous smile” that could brighten even the dullest of days. The understanding of why a such a young vibrant life would come to this sudden tragic end is so hard to comprehend and something that no parent or sibling should have to bear. May you find the strength through each other’s love to ease your pain, knowing that Jordan was a remarkable young man that touched so many lives in his short time here on earth and he leaves behind so many heavy hearts
    God bless

    Mr and Mrs Kalinchuk and Peter, my condolences for your great loss. I was just starting to really know Jordan and will miss him dearly. Thank you for molding such an awesome young man. We became friends because of the hobby we shared, and I had the pleasure to spend some quality time making my way up mtn faces with him. What comes to mind now is not the climbs we did but the stories he proudly shared of his family (of renovating the cabin in BC and the plans you all have for that place), his love for animals ( he enjoyed having a beer with my dog in his lap and the tribute he wrote for his dog said so much about Jordan). I am deeply saddened for your loss and I pray for strength for you in these days to come.

    Kalinchuk Family, it is with heavy heart as I type this message. I was fortunate to have Jordan in my home once and will never forget his kindness and respect. I have heard about many of his adventures through his best friend Cody and have been able to laugh with Bob at the office about his adventures. Having a son myself that is 21.

  31. Laurel Ambrose :

    I am shocked and so tremendously saddened to hear about Jordan’s passing in the news!

    He was a soaking wet, tired face on the side of the Trans Canada highway – desperately trying to get to his submerged pump station in Harvie Heights – when I approached him on the day of the flood. And for the next several days, we rolled up our sleeves and worked traffic detail together – a job that wasn’t asked of us. We spelled each other off in shifts, brought each other coffee to stay alert, and shared conversation about our lives in between the heavy demands of volunteering during a major disaster. Jordan was amazing, mature beyond his years, and when he said he’d be back, you knew you could bank on that promise.

    My heart reaches out to his family and friends. He was an exceptional young person, and I’m so thankful to have gotten to know him and see what he was really made of as a human being. I’ll remember that dearly.

    With great respect,
    Laurel Ambrose, Canmore
