It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Graham Robertson on Friday, March 27, 2009 at the age of 62 years, after a courageous battle with heart disease.
Graham was born in 1946 in Winnipeg and moved to Calgary as a teenager. He attended SAIT where he obtained his Reservoir Engineering Diploma and enjoyed his career in the oil patch in the seventies. Graham’s first love was his family. He also enjoyed the outdoors, camping, picnics, and his pets were always part of the adventure. Graham had a very resilient personality and overcame many of the challenges in his life.
Besides his beloved wife Leslyie, Graham will be lovingly remembered by his son and daughter-in-law Jay and Leslie; parents-in-law Stewart and Edith Egglestone; brother-in-law Gary and Mary Ann Egglestone and their family; cousin Susan and Tim Creelman. Graham was predeceased by his parents Jim and Ruth Robertson.
