Todd and his wife Danielle, grandchildren Kyle,
Cody, Nicholas, Marshall, and Daniel, sister

sister-in-law Val, sister-in-law Bev (Bill),

Dad is joining in heaven his wife of 41 years,

Dad was born June 21, 1935, in Riverton,
Manitoba, the second oldest of six children in the
Eastman family. Riverton always felt like his true
home… Dad was proud of his Icelandic heritage
and of course playing on the Lions hockey team.

After his marriage to Mom in 1969, Dad started
working as an auditor for Gulf Canada and
eventually moved West and settled in Calgary.

For many years, he was passionately involved in
his love for hockey, as a coach, a volunteer, and
an avid spectator of his grandsons. During that
time, he made many family friends and precious
memories that he truly cherished.

A graveside service will be held at a later date.
The family wishes to send a special thank-you
to the staff at Shepherd’s Care Foundation and
Pembina Lodge. Your caring and support for Dad
will always be remembered.

We will always love you Afi. “Goda Nott”
