1952 – 2014

Adrian Borovec of Red Deer, Alberta passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 9, 2014 at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre at the age 61 years. Adrian was born on October 21, 1952 in Blairmore, Alberta. He was one of the fortunate ones to work his whole life, as a Land Surveyor, which he always loved. After finishing two years at SAIT in Calgary, he went to work for Midwest Surveys out of their Calgary office. While there, he travelled every inch of Alberta and even into the Northwest Territories. In 1984, he moved his family to Red Deer where he worked at Beta Surveys until his passing. Adrian’s love of the outdoors was seen in his daily life and his annual holidays were usually spent camping with his family. He was also a Boy Scout leader and especially enjoyed the winter campouts. One of Adrian’s favorite past times was cooking. He will be fondly remembered for his “Sunday Suppers” where everyone was welcome. Adrian had a unique sense of humour, and in some situations, he was even able to “stir the pot” amongst those who knew him, well. Adrian will be greatly missed by his loving wife of 36 years Kay, and his children, daughter, Nadine, son, Nick (Kristy). Adrian leaves to cherish in his memory his precious grandchildren, Ryder and Halle, his sister, Diana (Tom) Salus, his niece, Jill (Mitch) and his nephew, Jason. He was predeceased by his parents, Monique and Ludvyk. If friends desire, donations may be made in his honor to the Cancer Centre – Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre, 3942 – 50A Avenue, Red Deer, Alberta T4N 4E7. A service of remembrance will be held at Parkland Funeral Home, 6287 – 67A Street (Taylor Drive), Red Deer on Tuesday, January 14, 2014 at 11:00 am.
