Obituary Overview

Elijah Joseph Rubletz

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Elijah Joseph Rubletz on January 6, 2022 at the age of 37. He was born and raised in Red Deer, AB.

Eli is the much-loved son of Kathy Williams and Tom Rubletz. Deeply loved brother of Amber and James Cavers, Tony Williams, Drew and Kayla Williams, Alex Rubletz, Olivia Rubletz, Elias Rubletz, Anwyn Rubletz and Addison Rubletz. Proud uncle to Luke, Logan, Lark and Madison. He also leaves behind his Nana, Laura Dinnadge as well as his aunts, uncles and cousins.

Eli loved spending time with his family, volunteering and attending church. He spent the majority of his life with limited vision and severe epilepsy, but he never let it hold him back. In his youth, he was on the provincial Goalball team. He enjoyed attending Camp Alexo with the Boys and Girls Club of Red Deer as well as working on their
yearly charity haunted house. In 1998, Eli was presented with the Chief Scout’s Award from Scouts Canada.

Eli attended high school at River Glen in Red Deer and went on to study massage therapy at Alberta Institute of Massage. He was proud to work at McDonalds in Parkland Mall as a table attendant.

Capturing Eli in a few words is impossible. Eli was determined, funny, remarkably hard working, fiercely loyal, always ready to laugh. A lover of music and comedy.

His family would like to thank all the medical professionals who helped support him throughout his life. Eli’s family extend a special thanks to the staff of the 1200 neighbourhood at the Michener Extendicare who cared for him during his last years.

The family will hold a service, and celebration of Eli's life on Friday, January 14, 2022 at Home Church in Red Deer at 1pm. Prior to the service, there will be a viewing at 12pm. Family and friends wishing to attend are asked to contact Amber Cavers via Facebook messenger due to covid restrictions, attendance is limited to 50 people.

As an expression of sympathy, donations to Camp Alexo (BGC Red Deer & District) would be appreciated by the family, as it brought so much joy to Eli in his youth.

Condolences from family and friends
