NAIL, Roger Keith

December 1, 1949 – Calgary, Alberta
June 20, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

Roger Nail beloved husband of Sharon Nail (nee Lovstad) of Irricana, Alberta, passed away suddenly on Thursday, June, 20, 2019 at the age of 69 years, leaving us all with a huge hole in our hearts.

Roger was born in Calgary, Alberta on December 1, 1949. He married Sharon in 1974 and they moved to Irricana in 1978 from Calgary. Roger retired as a Detective with the City of Calgary Police Department at the age of 49. He then took a year off before starting at his second job at the Acme Golf Course where he recently retired.
Roger accomplished much through his life and was particularly proud of his daughters and all his grandchildren. Roger enjoyed camping with the family, hunting, fishing, watching all the kids/grandkids sports and took great pride in his yard. He will be most remembered for his laughter and huge hugs.

Besides his loving wife of forty five years, Roger is survived by three daughters and three son-in-laws and eight grandchildren; Shaylene (Shane) Hansen, Madison and Emma, Tracy (Corwin) Skuce, Jaida and Tayden, Twyla (Adam) Piper, Makayla, Kylin, Jaden and Kamdyn. Roger is also survived by his brothers Randy (Lou), Terry (Alana) and Kevin. Roger was predeceased by his father, Clifford and mother, Minnie.

A celebration of life will be held at the Irricana Community Hall (300 1 St, Irricana, AB) on Saturday, July 20, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.McInnisandHolloway.com.

In living memory of Roger Nail, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Airdrie, 300 TOWERLANE DRIVE, AIRDRIE, AB. Telephone: 403-948-1100.
