  4. Bob Christie passed away January 1, 2013. His heart ached every day since his wife, Carolla, passed away in August. Although grieving, he found joy with his family and especially his grandchildren. In his last week of life, Bob played Santa (along with one of his grandsons who was an elf) to give presents "to the old folks" in his new extended care living facility.

    Bob was always taking up the cause of the worker and the people in his life. His cogent and passionate arguments were legendary and many a strategist, bureaucrat, and politician had no choice but to come around to see his viewpoint of an issue. During his last week and with limited mobility, he personally handed out 40 packages of chocolates to all of the facility staff, commenting that they worked so hard to make life better for him and other residents.

    Bob founded Christie Communications in 1978, actively doing inventive and leading edge multimedia projects starting in 1980. Bob was a brilliant writer, marketer, and producer. He loved to spark new ideas and create something people had never seen before. Bob and Carolla's life work is the foundation of our company and made us what we are today. Bob was very proud of our current work and our team. Bob and Carolla will both be missed very much.

    ***There will be a special "Christie lunch" celebrating both Bob and Carolla's lives and work at the Christie Communications offices on Friday February 22, 2013 at noon. We would love to share memories and stories with Bob and Carolla's friends and colleagues. Please RSVP maryanne [at] christie [dot] ab [dot] ca

  6. Saying Goodbye to Carolla Christie

    This week we lost someone great. A woman with a scientific mind and a fiercely caring heart. She loved her husband and family, and they were everything to her. She knew how to work hard into the wee hours of the night, and also how to burst into laughter during tough moments. I was lucky to spend two decades with her as my business partner, along with Bob. She mentored many of our team and helped shape our business. She will be missed.
