Obituary of Rob Roy Dean

DEAN, Rob Roy

July 11, 1948 – Regina, Saskatchewan

March 8, 2023 - Calgary, Alberta


It is with profound sadness that the family of Rob Roy Dean announces his passing, surrounded by his family, on Wednesday, March 8, 2023, at the age of 74. 


Born in Regina, Rob left shortly after completing high school and ended up in Calgary where he met the love of his life, Marlo.  Soon thereafter they welcomed their first child Tara and three years later Joel rounded out the family.


Rob was passionate about sports with his first love being slo-pitch where he developed many lifelong friendships. He enjoyed his long career in the transportation industry, eventually starting his own business and working from home.


His first love was always his family. Rob was known for his boisterous laugh and teasing personality.


He will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by his wife of 52 years, Marlo, children, Tara (Randy), Joel (Teanna); grandchildren, Kaden, Spencer, Reid and William; siblings, Lyle (Marilyn), Susan (Bob), Tim (Shannon); brother-in-law Henry. Rob was predeceased by his parents, Morley and Marion Dean, and sister Nancy Flaman.


A Celebration of Rob’s Life will be held at the Glenmore Inn & Convention Centre (1000 Glenmore Court SE, Calgary, AB) on April 12, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. Condolences, memories, and photos may be shared and viewed here.  If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the charity of the donor’s choice.
