Nov. 6, 1924 – Oct. 3, 2016

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and grandpa, on Monday, October 3, 2016, at the age of 91. Roy will be lovingly remembered by his wife Joyce of 68 years; daughters, Linda (Conrad) Hueppelsheuser, Jane (Howard) Thesen and son Don (Debra) Whitecotton, eight grandchildren, seven great grandchildren and one great great granddaughter. Also his siblings; May Smith, June Monro, Smoke (Alice) Whitecotton, Evelyn Frizzell and Lorne (Connie) Whitecotton, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Roy was predeceased by his parents Jessie and Walter Whitecotton, foster son Robert Manning, grandson Brian Thesen, and his brother in laws Howard Smith, Jim Munro and Ralph Frizzell. Roy grew up and also raised his family in the Iowalta district, where his love for farming and family was first priority. Roy enjoyed most sports but was an avid curler, ball player and golfer. He will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Roy will be laid to rest on Thursday October 27, 2016 at 11:00AM by his family at the Fairview Cemetery. The funeral service will be held at St. Andrews United Church (5226 51 Avenue, Lacombe, AB) at 1:00PM with a luncheon to follow.
