Our gentle dad left us on Sunday, May 6, 2007. How we will miss his snappy comebacks and those special ways his eyes looked, telling us of his disapproval, teasing or just loving.
Dad is survived by his daughters and their spouses, Lynn and Ralph Dove of England, Karen and George McKenna of Toronto, Nancy and Dennis Unguran; daughter-in-law Tammy and Ray Hribnak; and his sons and their spouses, Daryl and Gail, Kerry, Robert and Veronica, all of Calgary. Grampa leaves six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Grandchildren, Nathan and Lyndsay, who “you look good” thank you. Dad was predeceased by his son Royce in 1988; and his wife Lorraine, our mommie in 1991.
At Dad’s request, no Funeral Service will be held. A Private Family Graveside will be held. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to Father Lacombe Care Centre, 332 – 146 Avenue S.E., Calgary, AB T2X 2A3 Telephone: (403) 256-4641.
We would like to thank the wonderful staff at Father Lacombe Care Centre for their phenomenal care of our dad, “Gunnery Sergeant Roy” during his last months. Dad “Likewise!!”
