July 10, 1946 – April 11, 2019
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Lou Robert Foley, a loving and devoted husband and father. Lou passed away on April 11th, 2019 at the age of 72, surrounded by his family. We take comfort knowing that he is no longer in pain and has moved on to a better place where he is undoubtedly back in fine form and talking the ears off all of our waiting family and friends that have passed on before him.
Lou was born and raised in the Kinuso and Slave Lake area, eventually going into the “Family Business” of forestry and wildfire management. With a career spanning over 40 years, he lived and worked in almost every corner of Alberta, making friends wherever he went.
Far from shy, Lou could always be counted on to offer up one of his smartass comments or good-natured jabs to anyone within sight or ear shot. Honest and kind to a fault, he was as open with his love and compassion as he was with his opinions. The impact he had on the people fortunate enough to know or meet him cannot be measured, each and every one of them having or sharing at least a couple of “Lou Stories”. He will be loved and missed by many.
Lou is survived by his loving wife of forty-eight years Sheila; two sons, Hudson and Jason; and his three granddaughters, Meaghan, Ciara and Fiona. He is also survived by his two sisters and their husbands, Patsy (Francis) Cyr and Doreen (Gary) Davis. He was predeceased by his daughter Trisha, mother and father Pat and Cecile Foley.
A celebration of Lou’s life will be held at a later date. Condolences may be forwarded through www.McInnisandHolloway.com.
In living memory of Lou Foley, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES,
