Bob Maas, of Beaverlodge, Alberta passed away on December 5th, 2022 at 61 years of age after a short stay in hospital.
Bob was the second of four children born to Beatrice and Art Maas of Port Elgin, ON. He grew up on his parent’s farm in Ontario. At the age of 15 Bob moved to Alberta. He landed at the Edmonton Airport with a duffel bag and $50 in his back pocket.
Bob met his wife Alice while working at the Clyde Auction Mart. Bob and Alice moved to Beaverlodge Alberta in 1991 where they purchased land and began farming. They ran a beef and buffalo farm with their three children. Bob also worked off the farm as a Brand Inspector and at various other jobs including oil patch careers, eventually working his way up to becoming Frac Manager at Sangel.
Bob enjoyed breaking horses and riding in the mountains with his family. He passed on his love for horses to all three of his children. He loved welding and creating ingenious farm inventions and would often spend weekends with the entire Sangel crew skeet shooting off of his proudly acquired bridge.
Bob will be sadly missed by his wife of 38 years, Alice Maas and their children: Kyla (Travis), Wacey (Paulette) and Lonny (Caitlin); grandsons, Kason, Krew, Turner, Corbin and Huxley; siblings Jim Maas (Belinda), Judy Garrow (Art) and Don Maas (Alanna Roy); his nieces, nephews, and the many friends he acquired throughout his lifetime.
He was predeceased by his parents Beatrice and Art Maas.
