Alan Neil Herbert
Passed away on September 1, 2019
On September 1, 2019, Alan Neil Herbert was graced by angels sent by God to free him from his suffering. Alan gained his angel wings after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Alan passed away peacefully and without pain. Everyone who knew Alan appreciated his sense of humor and his commitment to family and hard work. He always had a smile and a kind word for young and old alike and was always ready to share his jokes and stories. Alan leaves behind his wife Carol who was the love of his life and his best friend for 44 years, sons Andrew (Brianne Campbell) and Christopher (Alyssa), sisters Diane Johnstone, Val (Bruce) Cameron, and Adele Heyworth, brother Bruce (Maureen), as well as numerous nephews, nieces, relatives, friends and our extended Tintinaglia family. Alan was predeceased by his parents William and Phyllis, brother Tim, great niece Avery Cameron, in-laws Emil and Sophie Angelo, and brothers-in-law Doug Angelo and Len Heyworth. The family would like to thank the doctors and nursing staff at the Edmonton Cross Cancer Institute's Symptom Control & Palliative Care Consult Program and the Grey Nuns Community Hospital Unit 43 for the compassion they provided while Alan was in their care, as well as Debrah Shiozaki, Home Care Nurse at St. Albert Health services. Cremation has taken place and there will be a private interment at a later date. A Celebration of Life will take place on September 26th, 2019, at 1:00 pm at the St. Albert United Church, 20 Green Grove Drive, St. Albert, Alberta, T8N 5H6. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the St. Albert Food Bank.

My sincere condolences to Carol, Andrew and Chris on the untimely passing of your dear husband and father. I will always remember Al as a happy-go-lucky Infrastructure Supervisor with the C. of E. and for his matter-of-fact approach to the job at hand. Contractors always knew where they stood with Al and he believed in getting the best product he could for the City -- which is why I always respected him.
He will be sadly missed by all and our loss is Heaven's gain. Rest in Peace ol' buddy.
