Christopher David Maltby


It is with great sadness and much love that we say goodbye to our beloved son, brother and friend Christopher David Maltby who passed away in Edmonton, Alberta on July 16, 2018 at the young age of 20 years.

Chris’ memory will be forever cherished by his parents Della and David, by his sister Rebecca, by his grandparents Zelica and Firmin Babineau and Janine and Blair Maltby, as well as by a very long list of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

A Memorial Service will be held for Chris at Good Shepherd Anglican Church, 15495 Castledowns Rd. NW, Edmonton on Saturday July 21, 2018 at 11:00 AM (with a reception to follow in the Church).

In lieu of flowers or other gifts, the family asks that donations in Christopher’s name be made to any animal shelter or suicide prevention charity of your choice.

My deepest condolences to your family. I had the pleasure of coaching Chris when he played football at St. Joes. He always put a smile on my face with his laughter and wit. He was quick with a joke or a jab and was always there to lighten the mood at practise and games at just the right moment. He will be missed. May he rest in piece.
