October 15, 2015 – Calgary, Alberta

Alex Ozerow of Calgary, passed away on Thursday, October 15, 2015 at the age of 88 years.

Alex worked as a train dispatcher for CP Rail for more than 40 years. He was a faithful hockey fan for the Vernon Vipers. Alex was a contributing member of the #3557 Fraternal Order of Eagles and Elks Lodge #45 of Vernon, BC.

Alex and his wife Patricia were married in 1951 and were married for 52 years before she passed away. They were both ‘young souls’ through their journey in life. His grandchildren were a joy to him. He often played a game of tag with them and his daughter remembers fondly him shouting “LAST TAG!”

God saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered, “Peace be thine”

Alex is survived by his daughter, Jennifer Jolly; son, Robin Ozerow and spouse Dianne; grandchildren, Ryan Jolly and spouse Megan of Calgary, Shawn Jolly and spouse Lindsay of Victoria, BC, Byron Tallis of Revelstoke, BC, Eric Tallis of Victoria, BC; great-grandchildren, Connor Jolly of Calgary and Abbey Smith of Victoria, BC; sister, Margaret Vanin; niece, Jan Vermette and her family Laurie and Oliver Ogden all from Moosejaw, SK; and numerous extended family members.

Alex was predeceased by his wife, Patricia Belle Ozerow in 2003; baby son, David; parents, Alex and Anastasia Ozeroff; and brother, Joe Ozeroff.

Memorial Services will be held at a later date. Condolences may be forwarded through If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to The Alzheimer Society of Calgary,

Alex’s family would like to thank the Millrise Place care givers, nursing staff, and residents for their loving care, friendship and support.

In living memory of Alex Ozerow, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Deerfoot South, 12281 – 40th STREET S.E., Calgary, AB. Telephone: 1-800-661-1599
