MOORE, Owen Harold

May 22, 1995 – May 26, 2017

Our hearts are broken. Our Owen left us on Friday, May 26 in Kelowna, BC.

Owen’s amazing, ever-present smile masked a deeper sadness. We will forever miss his beautiful eyes and flowing hair, his generosity, his kind and welcoming heart, his sensitive soul, his passionate approach to life, and his love for family and friends. Owen was never afraid of new experiences. He sought out epic adventures and fun times, never hesitating to invite others to join in. His ability to find his friends wherever he went was unparalleled.
He was rarely far from a guitar. He was a talented musician who lived for writing, playing, and recording music, and if this involved his buddies, all the better. He was so proud that he had just become an Audio Engineer and was busy working in the industry. Owen was doing what he loved.

He had a vibrant soul that made an impact on people the world over. He was, and always will be, loved immensely by his parents, Betty and Randy; siblings Ryan, Kelly, and Sarah; Grandpa Al (Moore), Auntie Barb (Ralph) Klein, Auntie Karen (Rob) Sartoretto, Sault Ste Marie; Uncle Bruce (Maureen) Stoskopf, Milton; his cousins; and so very, very many friends in Calgary, Kelowna, Vancouver, Luxembourg, and well beyond.

Please join in a Celebration of Owen’s far-too-short, but jam-packed life on Sat. June 3, 2:00 p.m. at Edenbrook Funeral Home, 24223 Twp Rd 242, Calgary, AB. Those wishing to pay their respects may do so prior to the service commencing at 1:00 p.m.
Something good needs to come of this tragedy. Donations may be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association in Owen’s memory (www.cmha.ca).

“I got a rambler’s heart
I got a roaming soul
I got a heart that bleeds
in the desert storm
I got a soul that sings all these
broken hearted cowboy songs”

- “Cowboy Songs” by Rosebone (Owen Moore & Josh Mulloy)

    My sincere condolences to Owen's family and friends. I knew him unfortunately briefly, but I will never forget him. He was an amazing person that made a huge impression on me. His passion for music was infectious, his smile beautiful and his stories of past adventures incredible. And of course his voice, which had a way of reaching you, moving. I am very grateful to have known him, he inspired me to start singing and playing guitar, and gave me some of the best advice I have ever received. He changed my life.
    My heart breaks for you again, hope you find peace darling - Aleks

    My son Clay had the pleasure of Owen's friendship as they went through the Audio engineering program. He said on numerous occasions how talented and kind hearted he was. We had the pleasure of experiencing his immense talent at the concert the class put on. He had a quietness about him, and a thirst for songs at the same time. He touched Clay's heart in a small amount of time and you need to be proud of your son for touching so many hearts in the very short time he was here. He will be missed by so many. Our hearts are with you. Lisa S

    My deepest and sincere condolence to the family.
    I had met Owen through my grandson Zachary Mulla - who misses him terribly - and watched them jamming together in my home. I fondly remember his beautiful smile and warm eyes and very respectful manner. What a wonderful young man he was. It is so very heartbreaking and unbelievable to grasp that he is gone.

    Words from a stranger: As a woman who lost her dad at 46 and brother at 42, my heart breaks for all of you. Know that all of you were the best part of his life. It is a very rocky road you must all now walk, and I urge you to hold each other tight as you navigate this territory. Please, please seek help. It is there and it does help, I promise. My prayers tonight are for all of you. May God comfort and keep you all close to Him. Paula D.
