Dec. 21, 1961 – Mar. 15, 2021

ROBERT BOULTON passed away in Calgary on Monday, March 15, 2021, after a valiant effort for his life, at the age of 59 years old.

Rob is survived by his son Andrew Barker and mother Frieda Boulton, both of Lethbridge; four sisters: Linda (Ed) Klima of Lethbridge, Karen (Doug) LaValley of Calgary, Brenda Boulton (John Weber) of Waterloo ON and Anna Lee Boulton (Anton Glukhovsky) of Vancouver, BC.

He was predeceased by his father George “Bud” Boulton in 2011.

We remember Robert as a likeable, friendly and good-natured person. He loved golfing, (and was good at it, single handicap), water skiing and was fun-loving in general. He was a great cook and a real Foodie! He was accomplished in his career in the oil patch holding a fourth class engineer’s certificate for pressure equipment. Then as work slowed in the summer, he completed training and received his certification as a swimming pool operator. He was an integral part of maintaining the acreage where he lived with his mother.

He will be missed by his many relatives and friends in the farming community who all have relayed stories of how Rob had impacted their lives. Dear friends who golfed and travelled with him will miss his bright smile and keen wit.

Remembering you is easy, we do it every day. Missing you is a Heartache that never goes away!

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a private viewing was held by invitation. Cremation was entrusted to Cornerstone Funeral Home.

Condolences and memories maybe shared and viewed on Rob’s obituary on the Cornerstone website.
