ADLER, Leonard “Guy”

January 5, 1939 – Turtleford, SK
November 15, 2015 – Calgary, AB

Guy Adler beloved husband of Diane Adler of Calgary, passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 15, 2015 at the age of 76 years, surrounded by his loving family, after a bravely fought one year battle with cancer.

Born in Turtleford, SK on January 5, 1939, Guy spent his growing up years on the family farm at Paradise Hill, SK where early on he became adept at performing many farm duties and honed his skills at fixing all things mechanical. He also loved reading, curling and the outdoors.

After graduating high school, Guy headed to Calgary where further schooling at SAIT led into the work world of the oil and gas industry where he was employed by several companies including HBOG and Dome. In the later years, Guy formed his own successful oilfield construction management company – Adtek Supervisory Services – his pride and joy for many years until he retired in 2013.

Home and family life was very important to Guy and he so enjoyed the yard and his gardening (his tomatoes were the best!) and spending time with family, friends and his precious dogs. Many great times were had with numerous camping trips and visits to SK and BC throughout the years.

Guy is survived by his loving wife Diane of 48 years; his daughter Teri; and son Kevin (Andrea); their children Kira and Jensen – his beloved granddaughters; his sister Janice (Paul); sister-in-law Donna;  foster daughter Melina and her children; as well as several nephews, nieces and extended family members.

Guy was predeceased by his parents Leslie and Winnifred; sisters, Pauline and Audrey; and brother Neal.

At Guy’s request no formal service will be held.
