Written by ECA Review


Samuel Kobley of Calgary, Alta. passed away suddenly on July 31, 2021 at the age of 62-years-old.

He was surrounded by friends and family at the time of his passing; a testimony of God’s peace and grace.

Sam lived in Mitchener Center in Red Deer until his early teens and then became part of the High/Hein family of Castor, Alta.

He is survived by his mother Rose High, sisters, Mary (Perry Holden), Victoria (Wes Goudy), Barb Milner, Cindy Hein, Chris (Lennard McFarland), and brothers Dan (Patricia Hein), Vern (Peggy Hein) and Ted High, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and their families.

Sam was predeceased by his father, George High, brother Norman High as well as niece and nephew, Ann and Matthew Hein.

Sam had a very close circle of friends in Calgary and they were family to him.

Sam made an impact on everyone he met, as he shared his faith in Jesus boldly and took the time to mentor family and friends in faith and encourage us to go deeper in God’s word.

Sam had an infectious laugh, was big-hearted and loved trying new cuisines and was a terrific chef.

Life was not dull when Sam was your friend!

He was quick to help those in need and never judged anyone or held any offence, he always looked for the best in people around him.

Sam always talked of seeing Jesus and when He was coming back.

So now that he is with Jesus, he would want everyone to know that God so loved the world, that he gave us His only Son Jesus, that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16).

The funeral service will take place in Castor, Alta. on Aug. 12 at 1:30 p.m. at the Evangelical Missionary Church.
