Obituary – Randy Gilbert Bellerose

June 14, 1952 – May 18, 2021

Surrounded by love, family and the guitar, Randy G. Bellerose “RB”, age 68, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 18th at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton Alberta.

Born in Athabasca, he grew up in Slave Lake until the age of 11 and then travelled throughout northern Alberta. He spent many years in Edmonton, Alberta and finally settled down in Fishing Lake, Alberta, where Randy “pops” raised his grandson Shayden Fayant with Barb Lebel.
From a very young age, Randy was a hard worker and took pride in everything he did. He had many talented skills as a roofer and carpet layer. Those blessed to know Randy, knew his greatest talents were playing blues music on his guitar, singing country and rock songs, always having a joke ready for any occasion, cheering on the Oilers, and being there for his family and friends.
Randy was a proud “pops”, survived by his son Shayne Fayant, grandson Shayden Fayant, and granddaughters Cora and Leah Vanholland, who all meant the world to him.

Predeceased in death by his father Gilbert Bellrose and brother Dwyane McLeod. He is survived by his loving mother Vie Bellrose, his talented brothers Darrel Bellrose and Rob Bellrose, his beautiful sisters Sharon Bellrose, Gwen (Dave) Boddez, Lisa Bellrose, and numerous cool cousins, nieces, and nephews who he loved to make laugh.

Randy showed kindness and happiness to everyone he met, even in his last days his gentle kindness had the nurses calling him Uncle Randy. The family would like to express our thanks to the doctors and nurses at the Royal Alexandra Hospital, for the wonderful help, kindness, and care given to Uncle Randy.

To allow the family to heal and due to the current limitations, we will be holding a small service for Randy’s close and immediate family. A Celebration of Life will be held in the late summer in Edmonton, Alberta for all Randy’s family and friends to attend – after all, Randy would want us all to celebrate him in true RB style with some singing, dancing, and laughter, as we grieve and celebrate the wonderful son, brother, father, grandfather, uncle, cousin and friend Randy was. We hope you can join us this summer to rejoice Randy and share memories that we will all forever carry in our hearts.
