ROBERT GREGORY REID
1931 ~ 2014
Robert (Bob) Gregory Reid was surrounded by family when he passed away peacefully at the age of 82 on May 31, 2014 at the St. Michael’s Palliative Care Centre.
Bob is survived by his wife, Kay, of 58 years, children Myrna Reid of Lethbridge, Carla (Brad) Hemsing of Lethbridge, Colin (Dawn) Reid of Kelowna, Janet (Doug) Friebel of Lethbridge, Kelly Reid of Calgary, sister Jeanette Hale of Edmonton, 9 grandsons, and 5 great-grandchildren. Bob was predeceased by his sister Yvonne Torgerson.
Bob was the second of three children born to Sarah and Bill Reid of Chin, Alberta. He was a hard-working, honest man who started working on the Cleve Ross farm north of Chin, Alberta when he was 16 years old. This is where he met Kay. After more than 30 years at the farm Bob and Kay moved the family to Lethbridge where he was employed at the Lethbridge Research Centre, first in the beef barn and then as supervisor in the dairy barn. After 22 years he retired in 1996.
Following Bob’s retirement, he and Kay enjoyed gardening and volunteer work as well as trips with family to places like Mexico, Alaska and Moyie, B.C. He loved family gatherings such as patio fires and holiday dinners and was always up for a game of cribbage with his kids and grandkids. He was a caring and loving husband, father, and grandfather. Bob always kept a special place in his heart for the babies and toddlers in the family. It was second nature for him to go out of his way to help family, friends, and neighbours. He was the proudest of Canadians and flew the tallest flagpole in the neighbourhood.
A Funeral Service will be held at 2:00 PM, on Thursday, June 5, 2014 at SOUTHMINSTER UNITED CHURCH, 1011-4th Ave. S., Lethbridge, AB with Reverend Aldeen McKay, Officiating. Interment to follow in Mountain View Cemetery.

Douglas Hendricks Erskine, beloved husband of Beverly Erskine, passed away in Coaldale on Sunday, June 1, 2014 at the age of 80 years.
The Funeral Service will be held at Knox United Church, 4929 – 50 Avenue, Taber on Friday, June 6, 2014 at 2:00 P.M. with Reverend Aldeen McKay officiating. A private burial service will follow at the Taber Memorial Garden. Condolences may be forwarded by visiting our website at http://www.southlandfuneral.com <http://www.southlandfuneral.com/&gt;.
Doug is survived by his wife of fifty five years, Beverly and their children David (Dolly) Erskine of Bragg Creek and their family Stephanie (Matt) and Ryan; Deanna (Gary) Glas of Coaldale and their family Breanne (Chris) Shaw, Steve (Willeke) and Kim Glas; Brad (Pam) Erskine of High River and their family Sam,  Jesse and Jordan; Lara (Dallas) Higgs of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and their family Jenessa, Marissa, Lane, Kienna and Tanner. He is also survived by his sister Connie (John) Lerner of Victoria, British Columbia and by numerous nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his parents Hazel (nee Hendricks) and Norman Erskine and by two sisters and brothers-in-law, Wanda (Joe) Rumohr and Fay (Jack) Urdal.
Douglas was born on May 20, 1934 to Norman & Hazel Erskine in Lomond where he was raised in with his three sisters. He moved to Vauxhall as a young man to play baseball for the Vauxhall Jets. It was here that he met his sweetheart, Beverly Fellger. They were married on August 22, 1959,  and were soon blessed with four children. David appeared first,   with Deanna, Brad and Laralee following shortly after.
Doug became business partners with his dad in 1954, opening “Erskine’s Hardware ” on Vauxhall’s main street. He enjoyed serving all of his customers for the next thirty six years, always looking forward to the “closed Wednesday afternoons”, which was usual in Vauxhall during those years. Doug would meet up with the other local business owners at the Legion for a “sociable” on these days. He retired in 1990 and he and Bev moved to Taber.
Doug was very active in his younger years being an avid golfer and curler, winning many tournaments and bonspiels. He leaves a “legacy” for us all at the Vauxhall Golf course, having planted a tree in the middle of the fairway on hole #2, obviously, without permission. This is now referred to as “The Erskine Tree”. While residing in Taber,  Doug decided to take on a seasonal job and ended up working at the Taber Sugar Factory for a couple of years. After a few more years, they moved on to Lethbridge.
Doug soon had a regular golf date in Picture Butte with the guys, joining them each morning for golf and a lot of laughs.   He became ill in 2008 and had to be moved to extended care in Taber where he resided until 2011, at which time he was moved to the extended care in Coaldale where he remained until his passing.  
He had an amazing life – loving family, great friends, good times and a lot of laughs!
If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Doug¹s name may be made directly to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta, Box 2211, Lethbridge, Alberta T1J 4K7 (www.heartandstroke.ab.ca <http://www.heartandstroke.ab.ca/&gt; ).
