Delane Balog Obituary

December 12, 1945 - Lethbridge, Alberta

March 6, 2024 - Calgary, Alberta

Delane Joseph Balog passed away on Wednesday, March 6, 2024, at the age of 78 years, at the Bethany Care Centre in Calgary, Alberta.

He was born in Lethbridge, AB, to Joseph and Stella Balog. The family lived on a farm in Milk River, AB, before moving to farms in Killam, AB, and Holden, AB.

Delane was predeceased by his parents, Joseph Leslie Balog of Camrose, AB, and Stella Mary Balog of Edmonton, AB. He is survived by three brothers and one sister-in-law, Clifford and Mark Balog, both of Edmonton, AB; and Brian (Heather) Balog of Sherwood Park, AB; as well as five sisters and four brothers-in-law, Elaine (Dwayne) of Camrose, AB, Beverly (Wayne-Deceased) of St. Albert, AB, Rosemary (James) of Edmonton, AB, Yvonne (Edward) of Edmonton, AB, and Rhonda (Lynn) of Camrose, AB. Delane is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

As a young child, Delane spent a lot of time with his sister Elaine, often staying over at grandpa and grandma Balog’s home in Milk River. The bond between them was strong, and they also spent time at their uncle Steve and aunt Helen’s home.

Throughout his life, Delane enjoyed several hobbies, including a passion for collecting comics, carefully preserved in plastic covers in a large trunk. He was fascinated with the beauty of marbles, and had a large tin container of them, now held by his brother Brian. 

Delane possessed a keen aptitude for mathematics, demonstrating remarkable skill in mental arithmetic. He relished the challenge of numbers and excelled in his academic pursuits.

Following his high school education, Delane relocated to Calgary, where he found tranquility in a family home environment with a caregiver. In 2019, Delane experienced a stroke, leading to his residence at the Bethany Care Centre in Calgary, AB, and later transfer to the palliative care unit due to personal medical needs.
