Obituary of Robert Jacob Hoeppner
January 24, 1958 – Winnipeg, Manitoba
November 6, 2023 - Calgary, Alberta
Robert Hoeppner of Calgary, AB, passed away on Monday, November 6, 2023, at the age of 65 years.
He was born in Winnipeg, MB, and was the only son of five children of the late Jake and Helen Hoeppner, with sisters, Merrilee, Judy, Sharon and Susan.
Robert is survived by his two sons, Robert Jacob Jr. and Jason Lindsey Hoeppner; and his six grandchildren, Jenna, Zoey, Elizabeth, Robert, Addison, and Julia.
Robert worked as a trucker for most of his life, loved riding his motorcycle and going on road trips with his buddies. His life was filled with endless travel stories driving throughout North America.
Robert had a sense of humour that would make people laugh, groan or be horrified! He was irreverent but he had his own strict honour code and respectfulness. He was a very tall man of a height of 6’8”. Everyone always looked up to him!
He recently became a member of the Granum Christian Reformed Church in Granum, AB. He is now with our Lord God.
A Memorial Service honoring the life of Robert J. Hoeppner will be held at the Granum Christian Reformed Church (1 AB-519 and Range Rd 260, Granum, AB) on Saturday, November 11, 2023, at 4:30 p.m. The Service will be presided by Pastor Henry Veldboom. Everyone is welcome to attend. Condolences, memories, and photos may be shared and viewed with Robert’s family here.
