Jules Baruta passed away on Monday, May 14, 2018 at the age of 89 years. Jules was predeceased by Ida, his beloved wife. He is survived by his loving children Joanne, John (Trisha), and Nancy (Ken); and his grandchildren Mitchell, Kennedy, James, Sarah, Reid, Natalie and Cameron. Jules was born in Slovakia before coming to Canada at the age of 6. He grew up in Coleman, AB in the Crowsnest Pass and attended school at the University of Alberta and SAIT which led to a successful career as a Geological Draftsman in the Oil and Gas sector. After mom’s passing, dad filled the void by spending time with his children, grandchildren and close friends. Dad took great pride in tending to his yard, complimented by avidly watching sports, politics and being a master at the game of Crib. We are so happy that he is once again reunited with his beautiful wife Ida, but we will miss his wonderful sense of humour, his wittiness, his love, and his gentle soul. A private family Celebration of life will be held at a later date. Photos, memories and condolences may be shared with Jules’ family through www.evanjstrong.com. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to Chinook Hospice (1261 Glenmore Trail SW Calgary, Alberta T2V 4Y8; Phone: 403-258-0040; https://www.intercarealberta.com/hospice-calgary.html).
