Rambert’s children and grand-children were truly the pride and joy of his life, he loved them very much, he had a good heart and was a loyal friend and brother. He made his Cursillo and worked at many Cursillos and Pilgrimages here at Siksika. He was a physically strong athlete and enjoyed playing hockey in the Siksika Minor Youth Hockey League and also loved and excelled at the sport of Fastball, playing on both family teams, the Siksika Knights and the Siksika Rebels, he was very proud that the Rebels were 3-time Canadian Native Men’s Fastball Champions. Rambert travelled to a lot of hockey and fastball games with his family, they had a lot of good times together and shared a lot, he also played slowpitch for the Siksika A’s Baseball team. Rambert was close with all his cousins and always addressed them as Brothers/Sisters; in the last few years of his life our Rambert had many challenges with his health, therefore family and his many friends stepped up and took special care of him; you would always find him hanging out with his cousin/brother Clayton “8” Medicine Traveller.
