CEAL, Robert George

It is with sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Robert G. Ceal at the age of 52 years young.

Robbie will be lovingly remembered by his wife Michelle Merritt, his adoring children Randi Lynn, Raye-Marie (Matt), Anna Marie, Bobbi-Jo; Justin and Josey (Dustin) and first grandchild Jack.  He is survived by his brothers Gerald Stewart, Richard Stewart (Shelly), Albert Stewart (Donna) and sisters JoAnne Klotz, Patti Gaucher and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.  Rob is predeceased by his mom Shirley Anne Saunders (Owens), dad Robert Ceal, step-father John Edward Saunders and baby Robert George Ceal.

Robert was born April 1, 1968 in Edmonton, moving throughout Alberta during his life.  He married Joanne in 1991 and raised 4 daughters in Leduc.

Robert started his career in oilfield services working for AMF TuboScope, Sedco and Precision Drilling, following in the steps of many family members.  DenRay Rathole was his favorite employer.  Robert also was a skilled carpenter and completed many projects for his friends.

Robert was a devoted father and loving partner.  He enjoyed travelling, singing his heart out and spending time with friends.  He was known as very reliable with the best sense of humour.

Most who knew Rob knew he suffered with Crohn’s disease and that we nearly lost him.  But with the care he received from Grey Nuns Hospital, he felt his life was into a new chapter.  He will be missed deeply by everyone who knew him.  Love ya hon. 143

I was so shocked to hear of Robbies sudden passing. Although I haven’t seen him in years, I have so many fond memories of the times we all spent together or the carpentry work he did for us. If you ever needed a good laugh or a shoulder to lean on, Rob was the one. RIP my friend. You’ll be missed by so many.

Condolences to Rob’s entire family. I know he’s a big presence and will be missed deeply. Rob was a really positive person in my life in very dark times for me. He showed me kindness and generosity when I was growing up. He took me to his odd jobs, finishing basements and shingling roofs. Taught me how to drive (sort of). I didn’t end up needing any of those skills in life, but I remember the detours fondly. Rest In Peace Rob!

It will be the little things that you remember
it will be the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter
It will be the memories that will one day push away the pain
it will be this that brings the smiles back again…..
