ROBERT "BOB" KOST

1931 – 2017
It is with profound sadness that the family of Robert “Bob” Kost announce his passing on August 4, 2017 at the age of 86 years. Bob was the second youngest of 12 siblings, born on May 21, 1931 in Schuler. He is survived by Audrey, his wife of 65 years, and two daughters, Gail (Mel) Williams of Crowsnest Pass, and Brenda (Safwat) Gabriel of Vancouver. Also left are two grandchildren, Hayley (Mike) Rayment and Stefan Gabriel; great granddaughter, Heidi; two sisters, Molly Durr and Edna Anheliger and his brother in law, Harold Burkett of Oakville, Ontario as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents John and Otelia Kost and by four brothers and five sisters. Bob worked for the C.P.R. until 1956 when he started Kost Fire Equipment Ltd. He went to work every day until he was 82 at which time, alzheimers took away the man that he was and made it necessary to move him to River Ridge Senior’s Village, where he lived peacefully until his passing. Dad was a hard working man who prided himself on never having missed a day of work. He was completely dedicated to his family. Time spent together meant everything to him. Unfortunately, the disease robbed him of his last few years with us. Until we meet again, we love you and miss you.

Alzheimer’s Request
Do not ask me to remember
Don’t try to make me understand
Let me rest and know you’re with me
Kiss my cheek and hold my hand.

I’m confused beyond your concept
I’m sad and sick and lost
All I know is that I need you
To be with me at all cost.

Do not lose your patience with me
Do not scold or curse or cry
I can’t help the way I’m acting
I can’t be different though I try

Just remember that I need you
That the best of me is gone
Please don’t fail to stand beside me
Love me till my life is gone.

The funeral service will be held in the PATTISON CHAPEL on Thursday, August 10, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. with Pastor Mark Bolender officiating. A private family interment will follow in the Hillside Cemetery. As an expression of sympathy donations may be made to the S.P.C.A. – 55 Southwest Drive SW, Medicine Hat, AB T1A 8E8.
