KEE, Robert Noel “Bob”

December 25, 1937 – Provost, Alberta
November 7, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Robert Kee of Calgary, AB, passed away on November 7, 2018 at the age of 80 years.

Noel (Bob) was born in Provost Alberta. He lived on the family farm with his parents, brothers and sisters. He later moved to Edmonton and Vancouver eventually settling in Calgary. While working for Burns & Co. in their print shop he met his future wife, Janet Davies, through her brother and Noel’s friend Bud (Albert) Davies. They married October 17, 1959 at Hillhurst United Church. Diana Noelle was born June 26, 1964.

Some time later on after the marriage dissolved Noel moved to Edmonton, (he never re-married) where he became a big Oilers fan.
Noel continued as a printer his whole work life right up to retirement.

In October 2016 Noel broke his hip and needed to go into care after recovery. He initially was placed in assisted living in Beaumont but agreed to be moved to Calgary so family could visit him regularly. He had great care by the Covenant Staff at Chateau Vitaline and at St. Teresa in Calgary and we thank them for their compassion.

Robert is survived by, his daughter, Diana Griffith and son-in-law Hal, grandson Jarrett Brown, Sister Joyce Larson. Ex-wife Janet Neyrinck (nee Davies)and many nieces, nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews.
