Robert Coxford passed, unexpectedly, on June 8th, from a heart attack.
He will be forever remembered, with much love, by his wife of 44 years, Gayle Coxford; his three sons, Jon, Nathan and Tim (Lindsay); grandchildren, Finn and Charlie; sister, Anne; and many relatives and friends in Wetaskiwin and beyond. He was predeceased by his beloved parents, Jack and Nancy Coxford.
Robert grew up in Mannville, and moved to Wetaskiwin when he was 17. He met Gayle at age 23, his “Gayleybird” who he spent the rest of his life with. Robert had a big personality - full of life and humor - that impacted everyone he came into contact with. He loved people, and he was also well loved. He will be greatly missed.
A graveside service will be held on June 20th at 1:00 pm, at Wetaskiwin Memorial Cemetery.
Donations in Robert’s honour are gratefully accepted to the charity of one’s choice.
