  4. I got to know “Mr. Krahulic” when I was in my very early teens, through our association with the Foothills Nordic Ski Club. He was also kind enough to get me my first real job as a “Jug Hound” with Dresser Olympic after graduating from Grade 12. My sincere sympathies to Elaine, Glenn, Kathy, Sharon, Leah and the rest of the family. I shall remember him as a true gentleman.

    Dear Elaine and family:

    I was saddened to hear that Bob had passed away. I know you will find comfort in your memories of family times together. Although I was quite young, I remember living in trailers and travelling with Texaco. There was a bond between those Texaco families.

    May the peace of our risen Lord be with you.

    Elaine and family,

    Upon first meeting our “new” neighbors, we sensed Bob’s kind and gentle spirit. How as a couple you complimented each other so well. We shared a love of cats. We know Bob will be greatly missed, he was truly one-of-a-kind.

    Sincerely, Lorraine & Ernie (#90)
