Obituary of Colby Scott Allen Sackett

On Thursday, February 14, 2019, Colby Scott Allen Sackett, at the age of 18, was tragically lost to us just outside of Beiseker, Alberta.

Colby is survived by his parents, Scott and Kerry (Grabo) Sackett; his brother Jaxon; Grandparents Rod and Pat Grabo, and Glenn and Donna Sackett; uncles and aunts Derek and Raegan Grabo with children Kloee and Wren, Dean and Monica Grabo with children Mikayla and Melyssa, Kathy Sackett with her daughter Allena; “framily” Kevin and Lynae Kiers with children Barbara and Bethany; and his girlfriend, Julia Self.

Besides his family, Colby was loved by a large extended family and great group of close friends.  His small childhood community of Beiseker-Levelland played an immeasurable role in making him the amazing person that he became.

Colby was most recently attending Parkview Adventist Academy in Lacombe, Alberta. The impact of his life and passing has been greatly felt by all that knew him. 

Along with the Beiseker and Lacombe communities, Colby was shaped by the many friends and faculty in Strathmore, Alberta during his 11 years at Brentwood Elementary, Crowther Memorial Junior High, and Strathmore High Schools. The memorial, as mentioned below, will have a concurrent live-stream shown at the Strathmore High School, where all are welcome to attend.

Colby had been accepted to the criminal justice program in Lethbridge, which was the first step towards his hope to be an RCMP officer. The character, empathy, and kindness that would have qualified him to that task are not only tributes to the family and communities that raised him, but were the same qualities that we watched pour out of his young life for 18 years. Colby will be so greatly missed.

A memorial service will be held on Thursday, February 21, 2019 at the College Heights SDA Church in Lacombe at 1:00 p.m. A live stream of the service will be shown at Strathmore High School.
