BALFOUR GarthPosted: February 26th, 2016
1940 – 2016
Mr. Garth Balfour of Lethbridge, left us far too soon. He passed away at the Chinook Regional Hospital on February 22, 2016 at the age of 75 years.
Garth is survived by his sister Eileen Williams; brother Robert Balfour; sister-in-law Lee Balfour; numerous nieces and nephews, close cousins James and Penny Balfour and an abundant circle of great friends.
Garth is predeceased by his parents, Henry and Mary Balfour; siblings Gordon Balfour, Murray Balfour and Johnston Balfour.
Born in 1940 in Sintaluta, Saskatchewan; Garth spent some time working in his Dad’s hardware store, but at the age of 19 he began his career with Eecol Electric. Garth would spend more than 40 years with Eecol, which eventually brought him to Lethbridge. Garth had a lifelong love of various sports, especially a love/hate relationship with golf.
At Garth’s request there will be no funeral service, however; a private family interment will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Garth’s name may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta, Box 2211, Lethbridge, Alberta T1J 4K7, or to a charity of one’s choice.
to send a private condolence.
