SOX

Alexander “Zander” Francis Sox passed away in the arms of his loving parents after a courageous battle with cancer on Sunday, December 4, 2016 in Calgary. Zander was born on April 9, 2012 in Medicine Hat to Landon and Amy Sox of Burstall. He also leaves behind his brother Anthony and his sister Athena; his grandparents, Terry and Margie Volk of Burstall; Alan and Heather Sox of Irvine; uncles and aunts, Myles and Lindsay Peterson; Dan and Marianne Taylor, all of Calgary; John and Jennifer McLeod (Kaitlyn, Paige and Madelyn) of Medicine Hat; great grandmothers, Waneeta Ritter of Medicine Hat and Phyllis Schweigert of Eatonia as well as many other loving relatives.
Zander was an inspiration to many. After being diagnosed with brain cancer at age 3, he proved to everyone how much of a super-hero he was. Becoming a paraplegic, undergoing chemotherapy and radiation, could not stop his amazing personality from shining through. Zander didn’t lose his fight to cancer. He defeated it by taking away the one thing it needed to survive.
The family would like to give big thanks to his entire care team at Alberta Children’s Hospital, Rotary Flames House and the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital. Special thanks to Dr. Doug Strother and Dr. Nina Hardcastle. We will never forget all that you did for our son. Thank you also to all those who supported us in the last 19 months.
The funeral service will be held in Holy Family Parish (1451 Strachan Road SE) on Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 10:30 a.m. with Rev. Dr. Shane P. Andrus officiating. In honor of our super-hero, we ask people to wear super-hero shirts if they wish. In lieu of flowers or gifts, in memory of Alexander, donations may be made to the Alberta Children’s Hospital, 2888 Shaganappi Trail NW, Calgary, AB T3B 6A8 or to the Rotary Flames House 18 Childrens Dr NW, Calgary AB T3B 6A8. To e-mail an expression of sympathy, please direct it to: pattfh@telusplanet.net subject heading: Zander Sox, or you may visit http://www.pattisonfuneralhome.com and leave a message of condolence.
