Bob was born February 27, 1943 in Spirit River, AB. He grew up with his parents and siblings on a farm in Blueberry Creek, AB. He married Deanna in July of 1965 and they ended up in Calgary, AB where they retired. Robert was a hard-working man who knew how to have fun and loved a good joke.

Bob is survived by his loving wife Deanna Zeyha (nee Dyrda) of 54 years, son Darren and mother to his children Debbie Buchan; Brenden Buchan (Michelle Low), Theresa Zeyha, and Alexa Zeyha; his daughter and son-in-law Arlana and Kurt Keller and grandchildren, Kailey and Koen Keller.

Bob also had many other family members and numerous nieces and nephews that were all very special to him.

He was predeceased by his parents and siblings, Ron Zeyha and Karen Ridley.
