BAKER

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Les Baker on Sunday February 13, 2022 at the age of 71. Les was born on January 21, 1951 to Clare and Gloria Baker. He was survived by his wife Judi Baker and his children Shiloh, Seth (Dianne), and Jenessa. Les adored his grandsons Keaton, Jaxon, Tanner, Lex, Nate, Luke, and Scott.

Les grew up in British Columbia with a loving and close-knit family. He had a beautiful musical talent, especially with the trumpet. He was asked to join a band with Herb Bishop and fell in love with Judi, Herb’s daughter. Les started going to church with Judi, was baptized and married Judi in 1977. The family decided to move to Alberta in 1982, where Les worked with the Bishop Family business in oil manufacturing and sales. Les loved fishing. Each time he was told he was having another grandson, he’d say, “I am going to need a bigger fishing boat!” He loved the outdoors and was a Master Scout, tennis player, and football enthusiast. Les leaves a big hole in many hearts and will be missed and remembered by many.

A Funeral Service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, February 18, 2022 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Copperwood Chapel, 9 Keystone Terrace West, Lethbridge.

Bob McKay of Lethbridge, Alberta passed away at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Thursday, February 10, 2022 at the age of 78 years. He was in hospital receiving treatment for bladder cancer during which he contracted Covid.

Bob will be greatly missed by all who loved and knew him – his wife of 55 years Sandra and his son Ryan (Kathryn Koliaska); grandchildren Elizabeth and Mark McKay; sister Donna Fyles; nephew Glenn Fyles; extended family and numerous friends.

Bob was born in Cardston, Alberta the son of Ruth Gillespie and Donald Alexander McKay. He attended Cardston Elementary and Highschool where he met his future wife pursuing both her and further schooling at the University of Montana where he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry. He married Sandra Long on June 24th 1967 at the United Church in Waterton, and began working as a member of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Lethbridge in September of the same year. He was one of the first Chemistry Instructors hired by the University of Lethbridge and worked there over the next 38 years guiding the development of laboratory skills and critical thinking in almost two full generations of undergraduate science students. Bob and Sandra traveled to numerous countries around the world and passed on their love to travel to their son, Ryan. They were pioneers of West Lethbridge, building the 7th house on the west side of the city. Bob was a fly fisherman, avid golfer, baseball and softball player, racquet ball and squash player, curler, cyclist, runner, and soccer coach. Bob was an especially accomplished squash player competing nationally and later receiving national coaching certification. He volunteered extensively in the community he loved including two terms as President of the Lethbridge YMCA, a member of both the Masonic and Shrine orders, and Senator at the University of Lethbridge. He will be greatly missed by his family and his many friends.

We are very touched to have received a personal letter from the President of the University of Lethbridge which in part reads: “In recognition of Bob’s passing, today we have lowered our flag; a statement of respect regarding all that Bob contributed to the U of L and how much he will be missed.” Attached below is a communication regarding Bob’s passing that is posted on the U of L’s Notice Board.

STILL, HERBERT “Bert” S.

The family of Herbert ‘Bert” Still is sad to announce his passing on February 13, 2022 at the age of 93 years. Bert was born on September 29, 1928 in Raymond, Alberta to Herbert and Annie Still.

Bert was raised in Raymond and attended school there until the eighth grade, from there he worked on different ranches in the area and that is how he met his wife, Marie Hately. They were married for 64 years when Marie passed in 2015. Together they raised six children; Phill, Ken, Kieth, Carol, Brian and Gail. From those six children they produced 28 grandchildren, 80 great grandchildren and 13 great great grandchildren.

Throughout Bert’s life he had numerous jobs from driving truck, moving horses and running heavy equipment but his love for livestock always brought him back to work on the farm and ranches where he was most happy working alongside his wife Marie.

When he retired from Nelson Family Ranches to their acreage east of Stirling, it was quite often he would be called for his opinion on livestock problems. He loved driving a team of horses and at his death he still owned a team. He will be missed by his family and many friends.

Bert’s saying: “Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars.”

Friends may meet with the family at the church prior to the service from 10:00 to 10:50 a.m. The funeral service will be held on Friday, February 18, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Stirling Chapel, Stirling, Alberta. Interment will follow in the Stirling Cemetery.
