GLASER, Robert


December 5, 1957 – January 15, 2011

Our amazing husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend died while skiing with his brother Mark. They shared a love of life and nature that ended far too soon. Rob was born December 5, 1957 to Jack and Beppie Glaser. He was raised in Calgary and settled in Bragg Creek. Rob joined the Calgary Fire Department, achieving rank of Captain with twenty-eight years of service. Rob was also greatly respected for his skills and craftsmanship in renovation work. Rob leaves his wife Judith Cartwright, children Jonathan, Michael and Anna, father Jack and brothers Ed and Carl. Rob was Jude’s best friend and hero to his children. He was a steadfast and true friend to those lucky enough to know him. Rob and Jude were soul-mates who shared and marveled in even the simplest pleasures in life – a walk up Two Pine, the first snow on Banded Peak, Anna singing in the car, Michael and Jonathan chopping wood at the Ghost. Rob lived his own book of awesome. Rob leaves many close friends and family. He made us all believe that anything was possible. Mere words cannot do justice to the role that Rob played in all our lives. A celebration of Rob’s life will be held on Saturday, January 22 at 1:30 p.m. at Rock Pointe Church, 255024 Lochend Road N.W. (Bearspaw#. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Lake O’Hara Trails Club, P.O. Box 98, Lake Louise, AB T0L 1E0. The family wishes to thank those involved in the search and rescue.
