Obituary for Robert “Bob” Elmer Christian

Fantin’s Funeral Chapel
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Bob Christian of Pincher Creek, Alta., on Dec. 21, 2021, at the Pincher Creek Health Centre. He was 76 years of age.

Bob was born on Oct. 11, 1945, in Williamstown, Ont., to parents Joseph and Ineilda. In 1982 he relocated to Pincher Creek, Alta., where he soon became an active member of the community.

He was especially well known for his involvement at Heritage Acres Farm Museum. Here, he was able to combine his love of farming and old machinery with his love of engaging with others. Bob also loved dogs, and he enjoyed going hunting — often with his hounds.

His was a life well-lived, and may we find comfort knowing that he is now at rest.

Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life are his children, Les Hall, Helen Petrone and Christy Negy; his wife, Helen Christian of Lethbridge, Alta.; five grandchildren; his brothers, Francis and Raymond; his sisters, Rose-Marie and Jacqueline; numerous nieces and nephews; as well as his extended family and many friends.

A memorial service will be held in the spring of 2022. Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
