July 16, 1948
September 8, 2013
We hang our heads, hats in hand, as we say goodbye to our proud “Cowboy” Colin Stewart Rolseth.
Colin was born July 1948 in Camrose, Alberta. In high school, he met the love of his life, Nancy. After they were married, Colin built his family and career in Calgary, as a partner at BDR Engineering where he earned the respect and trust of any and all that worked with him. Colin’s happiest times were when he was surrounded by family, friends, his dogs, and the horses while watching the sun set on Carma Sky Ranch; the dream home that was built into reality in 2000.
On Sunday, September 8, 2013 at the age of 65 years, Colin left behind his wife of 44 years, Nancy and their four children; Scott (Gail), Carla (Trent), Mark (Stephanie) and Kyle (Ceara). Colin has been blessed with 8 grandchildren: Erling, Olin, Noah, Carson, Jonas, Gunnar, Connor, Raya, and a 9th grandchild “on the way”. Colin also leaves behind his dear mother Jean, his sister Lynda (Gary), and two nephews Todd (Tracey) and Danny (Tara). Colin was predeceased by his father, Paul in 2012.
A Celebration of Colin’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Monday, September 16, 2013 at 2 p.m. Western wear is welcome, as that is how Colin would have liked it. Tributes may be made to the Foothills Country Hospice Society,www.countryhospice.org or to Tom Baker Cancer Centre. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
In living memory of Colin Rolseth, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY Funeral homes.Print This Obituary & Condolences
