January 22, 1926 - August 16, 2017
Robert (Bob) Edward Herzog, lifelong resident and farmer of the Delia area passed peacefully away in Calgary at the age of 91. We sadly say goodbye to a salt of the earth man who was kind, gentle, humble, loyal, hardworking, creative, innovative and full of gratitude for his family, friends and life experiences to the end.
While spending his life building and nurturing the family farm; Bob contributed time, care and leadership to the Delia 4H Beef Club, Cubs and Scouts, Conservation 2000 and the Delia Christian Fellowship Church. His sensitivity and artistic nature shone in his many photographs and in his ability to see beauty and goodness in people and places around him. Bob could fix anything – and build anything; especially if it was for fun! Bob will be deeply missed by his wife of 63 years, Gloria (nee Trout); their children Janet Herzog, Susan Larkam (Ralph Scott), Mitchell Herzog (Karen) and Jennifer Herzog (Tom McKay); their grandchildren Marc Lebel (Catherine), Paul Lebel (Antonia), Justin Lebel (Kayla), Warren Larkam (Kailyn), Grant Herzog, Jeffrey Herzog, Kaylin Herzog and Ashlyn Herzog; their great grandchildren Natalie, Andrew, Benjamin and Alisia Lebel. Also remembering Bob are his sister Shirley Herzog as well as many Herzog and Trout family members. Bob was predeceased by his parents William and Pauline Herzog; sisters Jean Hansen and Margaret Gummer; brothers Gordon Herzog, Donald Herzog and Stanley Herzog and by his grandson, Jordan Larkam. The family wishes to thank the staff at Providence Care Centre, Calgary for their constant, compassionate and respectful care of our husband, father, brother and grandfather. A funeral service will be held at 1 pm on Friday, August 25, 2017 at the Delia Community Hall, Delia, Alberta. Interment to follow at the Delia Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Bob’s name to a charity of your choice.
