October 3, 1956 – January 12, 2012
It is with deep regret and sadness that we announce the passing of Roy Allan Trottier, on Thursday, January 12, 2012 at the age of 55 years.
Roy was a born and raised “Calgarian” since October 3, 1956. From a young age, his father and grandfather shared their love of the outdoors with Roy, and he was hooked for life. His love for the wilderness was proven by the stories he told and the animals he hunted. Roy was in his happy place when he was hunting, fishing, camping and surrounded by his friends. His other loves were golfing, curling, riding his quad, motorbikes, eating Chinese food, pizza and kicking up his heels at any opportunity. Roy’s famous impersonations, stories and jokes kept us all in stitches. For over thirty-five years, he worked in the heavy construction equipment field which bore many very special lifelong friendships.
He will be deeply missed by his wife Midge; mother Ruth; sisters Darlene (Rob) and Debbie (Steve); sisters-in-law, Trish (Randy), Sue (Rob) and Joy (Woody); brothers-in-law Pete and Perry; nieces and nephews, Jessica, Danielle, Mariah, Tom, Tiffiny, Alana, Lisa, Cory, Dale, Krisjen, Sara, Kayla and Bryan; and father-in-law Poppers. He was predeceased by father Raymond and mother-in-law Kaye.
A Celebration of Roy’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Monday, February 6, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
