It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of Gregg Huyghebaert. After a sudden diagnosis of cancer three weeks ago, he fought bravely with optimism and hope until he could fight no more. Gregg passed away early afternoon of February 18, 2018 at the age of 38 in Leduc, Alberta.
Gregg will be forever remembered by his loving wife Jenn and their three-year old daughter Claire; his sister Trudy (Brian) Arbo and their daughters Cadence and Emilie; his parents Ralph and Sandra Huyghebaert, as well as numerous family and friends.
Gregg was a man of integrity, strength, kindness and humour. Even in his final days, when he was in great pain, he took time to be kind to those around him. His courage and positive attitude were reflected in his common phrases, “We got this” and “It is what it is”.
He loved greatly and deeply and was devoted to building and protecting his life with Jenn and Claire.
His passion for learning and life resulted in an interest in finance. He graduated with a Bachelor of Management from University of Lethbridge. Fearless and focused, he worked hard to build his career and to meet his goals.
At the time of his death, Gregg was a senior manager with Alberta Treasury Branch (ATB) in Edmonton. He was close to finishing his Masters in Business Administration (MBA).
Gregg was one of the great ones and was taken from us too soon. We miss him dearly.
At this time, there will be no formal service.
