Robert James Manitopyes of Calgary passed away suddenly into the spirit world on Sunday, January 16, 2005 at the age of 34 years.
Robert’s greatest love was for “my boys”, Brayden and Gabriel, who he was so very proud of. Robert’s other great love was his passion for acting which began in grade school and continued on into high school and beyond. He completed a two-year drama program at Mount Royal College and subsequently performed in various stage, film and television productions. Robert’s beautiful spirit will be sorely missed and cherished forever by all his family and friends; by his two young sons, Brayden, age twelve, and Gabriel, age ten; his loving mother Olive; his father Paul Pesti; a brother Alvin; three sisters, Gloria, Sharon and Carrie (Darcy); his nephews, Blaine, Dylan, Desmond, Jeremy, Travis, and Darian; his nieces, Jada, Denalene, Lanis and Chantal; as well as his partner Yalila; and many friends in Vancouver and Calgary. He was predeceased by his sister Juliet and brother Blaine.
