Jean Theroux passed away peacefully in hospital on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at the age of 85 years.

Jean was born in Drummondville, Quebec. After losing his father at an early age, he left school to work as a farmhand. Throughout his early adult life Jean worked for the railroad and in lumber camps. In 1956 he moved to Alberta and worked in the construction and oil industry, which also included a period at a saw mill in Vancouver, BC.

Jean was a great friend to many and had varied interests. In retirement he enjoyed spending time at local auctions, the Calgary Public Library and the Elbow River Casino, listening to the bands play. He always looked forward to his favorite time of year, which was during the Calgary Stampede.

As a young man Jean valued the company and council of older people. He said they were his guides. Later in life he would share his experiences with the young.

Jean will be missed by many for his kind and gentle manner, and his great smile.

Funeral Services will be held at Knox United Church (506 – 4th Street S.W.) on Thursday, November 24, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. Graveside Service to follow at Queen’s Park Cemetery. Condolences may be forwarded through
