July 6, 1960 – Brandon, Manitoba
September 6, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta
It is with profound sadness that we share the news that our dear Rob suddenly passed away on Friday, September 6, 2019 at the age of 59 years.
Rob lived and breathed anything to do with the outdoors – cycling, canoeing, sailing, cross-country skiing, hiking, snowshoeing – to name a few. When he moved to Calgary in 1997, he was in the perfect location to enjoy all of these endeavors with his wife, children, family and many friends. Though he was just starting his life as a retiree, he had a life that was lived to its fullest.
Memorial Services will be held at Red Deer Lake United Church (West on Highway 22X past Spruce Meadows, Calgary, AB) on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. The family encourages those who are able to attend to wear something that connects you with Rob and his life – cycling jerseys, team jerseys, your favourite sports wear – and also a photograph to share on the Memory Table. Condolences may be forwarded through www.McInnisandHolloway.com.
In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made directly to his favourite charities: Kidsport Canada www.kidsportcanada.ca, Right to Play, https://www.righttoplay.ca/en-ca/ or to Ride for the Cure, https://secure.conquercancer.ca.
