Mr. Robert Brent Alexander

October 7, 2010

Linda and I were very sorry to hear of Alex's passing (he was Alex way back in our teenage years). Rob and I met when we were 14..I remember him boiling up some frozen peas for a snack for us..even then he loved to cook. He had a great sense of humour and was good at anything athletic.
Our deepest sympathy to Diane, his boys and entire family.
Colin and Linda Larson-Victoria
I love you Uncle Robbie. I remember the countless family gatherings we have spent together staying up late talking about subjects as diverse as animals and natural selection, light and its behavior as a wave and as a particle, meditation and meditation master Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj, what I want to be when I grow up, Buddhism, definition of nocturnal at age 6, boys and relationships, juicing, the meaning of life, life after death and the various planes of existence etc. I love the time we got to spend together, and look forward to the time we will get to spend in the future. See you in Sach Khand Robbie!
We are very sorry to hear about "Robbie"
My husband and I went all through junior high and high school with him in Calgary and have great memories of him. He was such a kind and fun loving guy and we had so much fun with him and all our friends. He will be missed.
Our hearts go out to his wife Diane and two sons.

Only Robbie could show up for golf in his pajamas and a straw hat and shoot a 66. The way he embraced life and his friendships was inspiring and contagious. We have missed him of late and always will.
Rob was a fighter , saw it first hand , he didnt ever lose hope. He adored his family and would have given anything to be able to watch his kids grow up, they meant the world to him. He didnt lose his sense of humor , even in the last few weeks of his life, that was apparent in the hospital the way he joked around with us and the doctors. Rob taught Monty and myself to cook a new dish just 4 weeks ago in his and Dianes kitchen , he loved to cook he said , and it showed . We plan on making that same dish of payella here at our home , and we will always think of Rob , everytime we make it and wish he could be there to share in both the cooking of the dish and the tasting of the dish.. Fly Rob Fly!!!
