Obituary of Robert Daniel Specht

April 7, 1965 – March 23, 2022

It is with crushing sorrow that we announce the passing of our dear son, brother, uncle, partner, friend.  Rob was born April 7, 1965 in Eatonia, SK, he was busy and loveable right from the start.  Being quite mischievous, he kept his parents and sisters on their toes.  He always loved a good prank, he was easy going, and loved to help out his family and friends.  Our family moved to Calgary in 1966, then to Carbon in 1973, where Robert took most of his schooling and made a lifetime of friends.  Rob loved snowmobiling with his family and friends, once even riding from Carbon to Calgary for a telethon and lots of snowmobiling in the mountains on John Deere trips with Dad.  After high school he attended DeVry in Calgary, from there he got a job with Shell Oil, and held various jobs in Calgary and Edmonton, the latest at Edmonton casino.  Rob made friends wherever he went, he loved the mountains and to camp with his friends and his four dogs. The void he leaves is tremendous, but we will always cherish the wonderful times we had with him and all of the memories we are left with.

Rob leaves to mourn, his partner Leonard Fagan, his father Dan Specht (Donna), his mother Olive Coutts, his sisters, Susan Nairne (Terry) and Heather Gallagher (Sean), nieces and nephews Wesley Awesome (Bernadette), Stacee Amos, Jessica Nairne (Jamin), Evan Gallagher (Kate) and Avery Gallagher, great niece and nephew Annastasia Amos and Austin Hosick, as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.  Also, his beloved friends Ron and Darryl, and his pups Larry, Willow, Tiny and Mabel.

Rob was predeceased by his grandparents Phil and Annie Specht and Oliver and Beatrice Krogstad, step-father John Coutts, and his beloved dog Shamus.

A Celebration of Robert’s life will be held Friday April 1, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. at Lord of All Lutheran Church in Strathmore. In Lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Strathmore Handi-bus, Box 2533, Strathmore, AB.  T1P 0H3

In Rob’s honour, if you have a good prank play it on your loved ones in his memory.
