MAGEE, John Robert (Bob)

Bob, age 84, passed away peacefully on March 6, 2021. Bob is survived by his wife Heather; sons Rick (Diana), Scott (Nenette); grandchildren Riana, Brandon, Brett, and Ceduna; and sisters Donna (Wilbert) and Carolynne (Bob).

Bob had a passion for hockey, golf, and curling. His strong presence and influences such as his “love for the game” is something we all appreciated. Added to this was his deep love and devotion to family. He set a great example for all of us, and we will carry a part of him with us forever.

After retiring, Bob and Heather (lovingly called “Lassie”) travelled to Palm Springs, Europe, the Maritimes, Western Canada, and on several cruises. Thanks go out to the Royal Alexandra Hospital and the Cross Cancer Institute.

Due to Covid restrictions, a celebration for Bob will be announced later. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cross Cancer Institute Foundation at:

The Yurick Family

Bob was full of fun and an inspiration to be around. He loved life and all the good it brought and encouraged those around him to live it to the fullest. Bob’s incredible commitment to his family and friends is a beautiful legacy. As a husband, father, grandfather, or friend Bob made you feel special and the most important person in the room. That was a gift that Bob gave us that will never be forgotten. Our condolences to the Magee family and we hope the wonderful memories that you have as a family give you comfort during this difficult time.

Heather & family … Bob & I worked together at the School Book Branch/Dept of Edu. Both starting our careers back in the 60’s. Bob was a hard worker, a smart guy that moved on to bigger & better things. Good sense of humour, big smile, a good golfer. We had a SBB Pitch & Putt Tournament. Bob was a pro! There was a non player with big handicap who won! Hrs later turns out there was scoring error, Bob won, he said let it go, means a lot to him! That was the Bob I remember 🙂

Some of the best memories of our life. Working for MCARFA, socializing, and knowing that good people can make a difference.

Heather & family
No words can ease the deep sorrow your family is feeling at this time. You have lost a great husband, father and grandfather who was all your biggest fan. He was so proud of his family. I always enjoyed our golf games at PDG. It is the conversations that I’ll remember and cherish. Our sympathies to you all. Bruce & Marilyn MacLean

Len and I have so many happy memories of all the years we spent with Bob and Heather at Belvedere Golf Club as well as the times we spent together in Palm Springs. We are saddened at his passing.

Marjorie Evans

Oh Bob, I will surely miss you. You were so much fun and you could engage at length in conversations covering so many topics. You were so positive and the life of the party. Up for anything! David and I had many joyful times with you and Heather, over drinks, BBQ’s and playing numerous golf courses in Edmonton, Palm Springs, and Scottsdale. Like so many others, I’ll miss you, and “we will see you when we see you “ on your new heavenly turf.
