HEALYPosted: October 26th, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of CHRISTIE “CHRIS” JAMES HEALY, on Wednesday, October 21, 2015 in Lethbridge AB at the Age of 41 years.
Beloved husband of Lorraine Healy and loving father to Trey, Kane and Hana Healy. Chris also leaves to mourn his passing his parents: Ron & Theresa Healy, Auntie Mom: Veronica Eagle Bear, Grandmother: Clara (Francis) Russell, his siblings: Dagmar, Shawna, RJ (Raven) Healy. Tamara First Charger & Kelly (Ron) Thunder Chief. His mother in law Nora Stabs Down, sister in laws: Pam (Phil) Dahdona, Bonnie (Chad) Stabs Down, brother in-laws: Freddy & Norman Stabs Down, Ralph Weasel Fat Jr.
Chris has left such a huge void in the lives of all who loved him, especially in the lives of his family. Lorraine, the love of his life, seldom were they ever apart. There was no Chris without his Lorraine and no Lorraine without her Chris. He was such a loving and devout father to Trey, Kane and Hana, always providing for their every need and was their biggest and proudest fan. He will forever be remembered for his kind loving ways. His contagious smile and his never ending love to tease. Chris was a gentlemen, a man with a big heart, humble and compassionate, a legacy for his children to follow. Thus the reason he made many friends wherever he went and they always became family. There are many stories one can share of Chris that more often than not end in humour. We have only been so blessed to have shared a lifetime with Chris and life as we knew it will now never be the same without him. Currently Chris was employed with Charlton & Hill Roofing, in his second year of apprenticeship, and had formed special friendships with his co-workers whom will miss him deeply. Prior to his current employment Chris was a professional truck driver 10 years in the Calgary and area.
Chris is also survived by Hugh (Jean) Tallow, Great Aunts Margaret (Andrew) Weasel Fat & Elizabeth Big Throat. Aunties: Cecilia (Norbert) Black Water, Florine White Man Left, Natalie (Gordon Morning Bird) Eagle Bear, Frankie ( Wilbur) Yellow Old Woman, Annette Russell & Vicki Goodstriker. Aunt Wendy Tallow, Ann ( Levi) Black Water, Trina Tallow, Kelly (Todd) Tallow. Aunt Inlaws: Leona Stabs Dow, Evelyn (Hank) Stabs Down, Lena (Newton) Bullshields, Myrna Stabs Down, Uncles: Pat Eagle Bear, Joe Stan Eagle Bear & Frank Russell. Uncle In-laws: Harry Stabs Down & Billy Yellow Horn. Many cousin too numerous to mention.
Chris was predeceased by his grandparents: Billy Eagle Bear & Margaret Calling First, Aunts: Susie (Herbert) Bullshields, Mary Eagle Bear, Eleanor Healy-Crow Chief. Uncles: Anthony Eagle Bear & Curtis James Russell and Uncle In-law: Melvin (Wallace) Stabs Down.
