Condolences to the family of Dale Alexander Armstrong


Dale Alexander

March 8, 1963
- July 3, 2021

Dale Alexander Armstrong, 58, of Nacmine, passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 3, 2021, at Red Deer Regional Hospital surrounded by family and friends. Dale will be greatly missed by daughter Katherine Armstrong (Brad Burgess) and granddaughter Victoria, and daughter Cassandra Armstrong and grandson Levi. He was predeceased by life partner Bonnie Hallett also of Nacmine. He leaves behind his two furry friends Joey and Maggie, which he loved dearly. He was also predeceased by Mother Susan Lennstrom of Drumheller and Father Robert Armstrong also from Drumheller. Dale loved and was loved by many close friends in and around Drumheller and spoke of them often. He was an outgoing, fun-loving person, always up for a good time.
Dale spent most of his life living in Drumheller and resided in the town of Bentley for many years.
Dale had many passions and hobbies including hunting, classic cars and trucks, and wheeling and dealing, however, he was a mechanic through and through. He was constantly working on his trucks and cars and could not wait to fully complete his 1959 Chevy truck that he was so proud of. He was always there to help anyone that he could, if they needed anything, he was there. Dale gained a passion for travel, Costa Rica was his choice destination, and was looking forward to his next adventure there.
At his request, there will be no funeral service, however, a celebration of life will be held in his honour this summer, including immediate family and friends at his home.
Any donations can be made to the Humane Society or the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Dr. Robert Edmund

November 17, 1948 - July 17, 2021

Robert Edmund Smith, born November 17, 1948 in Burwash, Ontario, passed away on July 17, 2021.
It is with tremendous sorrow we announce the passing of Robert (Dr. Bob) Smith. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 48 years Audrey, children Christina (Dmitri) and Matthew (Stephanie), grandchildren Maksim, Aliena, and Lincoln, 4 siblings Wes, Clarence, Betty and Alice and numerous family in Manitoba and Ontario.
Bob’s first “calling” was as a Salvation Army officer and although he left the work to pursue studies he never wavered from his love for God or the church and served in many leadership roles within the church.
He was a lifelong learner who never stopped expanding his knowledge through university studies. As a respected clinical psychologist, he devoted his career to those in
the corrections system provincially, federally and internationally.
Upon his retirement, he acted on a lifelong dream to open a private practice.
A memorial service will be held in Drumheller, where he lived for 21 years on July 30, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. at the Salvation Army, 90 South Railway Ave. Interment will be at a later date in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Dr. Bob will be dearly remembered by his many friends, colleagues and family. The family would like to thank the medical team at Red Deer Hospital for the care they provided in his final days.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Salvation Army Drumheller, Box 3097, Drumheller, AB. T0J0Y0.
