It is with great sadness we report the sudden passing of a wonderful gentleman, John Roy Roberts (Jack), January 25, 2015, at home. He will be mourned and sadly missed by his loving wife Shirley, daughter Laura and Gerald Henkel, sons Cal (Susan), John (Maureen), Scott (Rhonda), ten grandkids, eleven great-grandkids and numerous nieces and nephews.
Jack was predeceased by his first wife Shirley, sister Eva and brother Bill. He volunteered for ten years driving patients to the Cross Cancer Clinic and most recently Neighborlink. Most important in his life was his family, relatives, and friends. Jack’s generous caring nature touched the lives of many neighbors, friends and strangers who became a part of his “extended” family. He was receptive to the needs of others and gave freely of his time, and talents, telling many wonderful stories of life, love and laughter. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Neighborlink Box 4065 Spruce Grove, Alberta T7X 3B3 or Mewassin United Church c/o Box 3196 Stony Plain, Alberta T7Z 1Y4
