December 24, 1928 – May 7, 2014
Robert Greep passed away with his family by his side on Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at the age of 85 years. Left cherishing his memory are his wife of 57 years Opal; 10 children, Dealia Milner (Joe), Barbara Balfour (Tony), Dale (Sandra), Glen (Debbie), Linda Greep, Louise Davidsen (Leon), John (Victoria), Lynette Linares (Francisco), Bradley (Jeanette), Rachelle Shipley (Brent), along with 51 grandchildren and 28 great- grandchildren. He was predeceased by his parents William & Harriett Greep, brothers Earl, Jim, Wayne, and sister Gladys Schultz. Robert was born in Wardner, BC and raised in Raymond, AB. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Australia. After returning, in his own words, the best thing he ever did was marry Cleah Opal Hatch. Through Robert Greeps humility he was able to transform the vicissitudes of his life into gateways to growth and quietly touched the lives of all those he came into contact with. The world weeps for men like Robert.
