Christopher Prendergast

June 23, 1972 – March 24, 2021
We are deeply saddened to announce the sudden passing of Mr. Christopher ‘Chris’ ‘Shea’ Prendergast at Edmonton, Alberta on Wednesday, March 24, 2021 at the age of 48 years. Chris was born on June 23, 1972 at Calgary, Alberta, the youngest son of Clark and Kathy Prendergast.
He spent his early years in Red Deer, with two years spent in Nova Scotia. After graduating from Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School in Red Deer, Chris attended the University of Alberta, Edmonton. He graduated University with his Bachelor of Science Degree.
In 2001, he married Petra Roubalova; and the couple had two sons, Clark Liam and Carter Ladislav. Chris enjoyed countless hours coaching his sons in sports, and taking them boating and fishing. He was an avid scuba diver, hunter and he enjoyed traveling the world.
A highlight for Chris was his volunteer work with Broken Earth in Haiti. He was instrumental in gathering supplies and equipment for the surgeries needed there. Chris will be very deeply missed by all who loved him; and the world has one less angel to help the needy and the poor.
Chris will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Petra and his two sons, Clark and Carter of Edmonton, Alberta; his brother, Rod and his wife, Susan, also of Edmonton, his father, Clark Prendergast (Margaret Walker), his mother, Kathleen Humphries Fuchs (Johnnie), all of Red Deer and his nephew, Markus of Edmonton; as well as his step brothers and sisters, his aunts and uncles and his many cousins.
A Private Family Funeral Service will be held. For those unable to attend, the Funeral Service will be Live Streamed.
