Robert Wallace (Bob) Train, born March 15, 1926, passed away in Fort Macleod on Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2015
“If more people would hug instead of push away, there would be less trouble in the world.” (Bob Train).
The legacy of “Grampy” Bob Train lives on in the strong thread of love he has woven throughout the lives he has touched.
Bob gave of himself in all areas of his life and instilled in his family a love for one another and the direction to “serve your community and those around you.”
Southern Alberta was such a big part of Bob. He travelled all over throughout his trucking career and made friends wherever he went. He believed strongly in giving to your community and believed strongly in the people of Fort Macleod.
Bob worked at Vanee Livestock for 38 years and was more than just a truck driver, he was family. He loved trucking, loved driving and loved the people he met along the way.
Bob was also a very active member of the Fort Macleod Lions Club for many years. If you ever ate the mouth-watering roast beef cooked by the Lions Club, it was likely Bob had a hand in it.
Bob will be deeply missed by his children: Sally Plourde (partner Dan Gray), Susan Risser (husband Dale Risser), Rob Train, Dean Wilson (children Kendra and Mitchell); Sandra Young (husband Mark Young) and Ron Akins (wife Barb); grandchildren and great grandchildren: Tara Walker (husband Darryl Walker, children Kaleb and Isabelle), Nicole Lougheed (husband Jesse Lougheed, children Chloe and Nate), Cameron Plourde (fiance Jamie Watt), Candice Larson (husband Carter Larson, child Lincoln) and Chantelle Vallieres (single and looking), along with innumerable relatives and friends.
Bob is reunited with his wife and the love of his life, Linda Train; his parents, Olive and Scotty Train; his brother, Alan Train; his nephews Roderick Grant and Scott Train; brother-in-law, Duncan Grant, along with many other loved ones (it will be some reunion).
Though his worldly journey is over, Bob’s legacy lives on through his many friends and family. Thank you “Grampy” for blessing us with your kindness, wisdom and that ever present splash of stubbornness; you are forever in our hearts . . . and Grampy, we will meet you in heaven or pass you . . . I never totally figured it out.
A memorial service was held at 3 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 9, 2015, at Trinity United Church, 220 20th St., Fort Macleod with Rev. Eras Van Zyl officiating.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Fort Macleod Lions Club, P.O. Box 1575, Fort Macleod, T0L 0Z0.
