UNDSETH, Dennis Bobby

Dennis Bobby Undseth passed away on September 6, 2018 at Sarcee Hospice in Calgary, Alberta at the age of 65.

His stories will be passed on by his children; his daughter Frankie (Ben) and son Ryder of Calgary; his son Seth of Medicine Hat, and his son Cody of Edmonton; his mother, Bertha Undseth of Pennant; his sister Barbara (Bruce) Forrest of Ucluelet. Bob was predeceased by his father, Irwin “Buster” Undseth.

Bob was a man of many trades and skills. He had pleasant memories of being raised and working on the family farm. He told stories of selling houses and records; of building roads, pizzas, and coffees. Stories of labouring in the Yukon and on a dairy farm; of driving at Bob Bondurant School of Racing and later as a driver instructor with the CAA. He later moved on to School Safety Patrol and finally retired as the general manager of the AMA in Medicine Hat at age 58. He was a gentle man with a love for his dog, his motorcycle, and most importantly his children. He enjoyed his vehicles, but his transportation of choice would always be a horse. He mastered the art of the road trip and fully embraced the freedom of aimless wandering. It was rare for Bob to leave a new location without having made at least a couple new acquaintances. He taught his children that life was about experiences, so he offered them the beautiful, inspiring, and occasionally embarrassing experiences of a lifetime that he would go on to share with whomever would lend an ear.

A graveside service will be held on Tuesday, September 18, 2018, at St. John’s Lutheran Church and Cemetery outside of Pennant, SK followed by coffee with the family at Pennant’s Senior’s Hall where we will be celebrating Bob’s life and sharing stories in his memory.

Offer Condolence for the family of UNDSETH, Dennis Bobby

    Frankie, Ryder & Seth,
    We’re heartbroken to hear of your Dad’s passing. He was one in a million and would do anything for anyone. I can just picture the big hug Uncle Moe gave him when they met in heaven. Take care of each other, that’s what your Dad would want most. He was incredibly proud of each one of you.
    Love,
    Auntie Sally & Diane

    We are sending condolences to Bob’s family, Mother and His children. Bob was very much liked by most people and also talked to anyone. We got to know him through Ama as we are a ama contractor in Medicine Hat. We had many good breakfast meals with Bob when he was Manager in Medicine. We enjoyed our visits very much. Rest in peace and happy travels . Willie & Linda Langille , Willie’s 24Hr. Towing Ltd

    I was deeply saddened to hear of your Dad’s passing. I’m one of his motorcycle buddies, and will always have fond memories of him from our group’s annual June trips. Bob was a cheerful, friendly guy; always upbeat, and a really fun guy to be around. A genuinely nice person. He will be missed.

    Condolences to his family and many friends,

    Ross Strobel

    To Bertha, Barb and family and to Bob’s family
    I was saddened to hear about Bob and though I hadn’t kept in close contact with him over the years, every time our paths crossed we had good memories of growing up as close friends in a small town.
    Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time
