KROL, Gary Alfred - July 18, 1946 - February 6, 2018 With heavy hearts we announce that Gary passed away at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary, AB after a brief battle with cancer. He will be deeply missed by Peggy (nee Enns), his loving wife of 43 years; his son Jacob (Alyssa Butters); his sister Maureen Peirce (Jim); and his half-brother Oliver. Gary is predeceased by his son Matthew. Gary spent 40 years in different aspects of both the residential and commercial construction industries. These included a variety of roles in everything from framing houses to Project Manager in downtown high rises. He was also a co-owner with Peggy in Traditions - a country store in Cochrane for 24 years. Gary had a great love for baseball as both a coach and a fan. He also had a keen interest in fishing. He spent many enjoyable days both locally on Alberta trout streams, and in later years on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Gary was highly devoted to his family, always doing everything he could to provide for his wife and two sons.
