LIGHTHEART, Troy Alexander

December 1, 1979 – Calgary, Alberta
March 6, 2019– Calgary, Alberta

It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved son, brother, and spouse, Troy Lightheart, on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at the age of 39 years.

Troy was an old and gentle soul, wise beyond his years, introspective, open-minded and caring. At times, a man of few words but one could still always depend on Troy to chime in with his humorous sarcasm and dry wit. Ever the intellectual and voracious reader with myriad interests, Troy would never shy away from thoughtful discourse; debating politics, religion, and the social world. Sensitive and reflective, Troy’s presence will be deeply missed, but fondly remembered for influencing the world around him in a quiet but impactful way.

Troy is survived by his parents, Glenn and Lenni; brother, Luke; sister, Emily (Devan); nephew and niece, Huxley and Tommy; loving partner Jodi; grandmother, Mildred; close family friend, Clint; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

To help us celebrate Troy’s life and honour his bright and remarkable personality, we invite friends to wear bright, colorful clothing.

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Chapel of the Bells, 2720 Centre Street North Calgary, AB) on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Chapel of the Bells, 2720 Centre Street North, Calgary, AB), on Friday, March 15, 2019 at 2:30 p.m. Reception to follow in the Hospitality Centre at the Funeral Home.

If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Canadian Mental Health Association – Calgary Region, Suite #400, 105 – 12th Avenue S.E., Calgary, AB T2G 1A1 Telephone: (403) 297–1700, www.cmha.calgary.ab.ca or the Calgary Distress Centre Calgary, 1010 8 Ave SW#300, Calgary, AB T2P 1J2, Telephone: (403) 266-1601, https://www.distresscentre.com/

    I remember that in December 1979 two very happy grand perents with the birth of their first grand son grandma said a early Christmas present.
    Through out the years I noticed that Troy had a simple logic and a sensitive soul to go with it. He believed if a person needed help you gave it and asked for nothing in return.
    Because of Troy’s warm, sensitive, loving nature his grand perents would have been very proud of him. His uncle is.
    We are sorry that we are unable to be there with your family Troy to celebrate you life at this time, but will come shortly to visit and we will talk about you then.
