Robby Foss

Obituary of Robby Foss


     Rob was born on February 22, 1967 at Calgary, Alberta to Roger and Marilyn. He passed away unexpectedly on June 14, 2022 at the age of 55 years. 


     He is lovingly remembered by his father, Roger Foss and mother Marilyn Stevenson (Garth); sister Kelly Frigon (Sheldon, Fox and AJ); daughters, Chelsey and Melissa (Danton) and numerous uncles, aunts, nieces and nephews. 


     After Rob was born, the family lived in Calgary and then moved to Strome in 1969. Rob’s sister Kelly arrived in 1971 and he was a wonderful big brother right from the start. The family moved to Camrose in 1975 and spent their spare time camping and fishing. Rob attended elementary and high school in Camrose until he started working with Roger in industrial construction, working across Western Canada and the Territories. He made many good friends along the way.


     Rob married Karen Burnett in 1991 and they settled in the Millet area. In 1994 they welcomed their daughter Chelsey and in 1995, Melissa completed their family. Of anything in his life, Rob was the most proud of his girls. He enjoyed any time he could spend with them and helping them with their cars.


     Rob had a love for anything with a motor from a very early age. He got his start in driving when he was three years old when he got a replica 1932 electric Ford Roadster for Christmas. His love for all things mechanical never diminished. He drove cars, motorbikes and skidoos his whole life. He loved camping and fishing. And he loved music. He grew up listening to the Beatles and had an appreciation for all kinds of music. 


     Rob had many good friends that he enjoyed going for drives with and just hanging out, having a drink and talking. He also enjoyed photography and he loved watching sunsets. Rob will be greatly missed by many. 


A celebration of life will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, June 25, 2022 at Weber's Mount Pleasant Chapel in Camrose.  The family requests that those attending please dress in casual clothes in honour of Robby.  

Memorial donations may be made to the Stollery Children's Hospital.
