As he stated many times, his life took a change for the better when, in 1955 at the age of 18, he met his first and only love Mickey. Albert and Mickey married the following year on September 22nd,1956
In his early years, Albert worked for Safeway in Portage La Prairie and Minnedosa before moving his family to Winnipeg. There he worked for the Manitoba Liquor Commission for 29 years until his retirement. Shortly after retiring Albert and Mickey moved to White Rock, BC.
Albert had a passion for hunting, fishing and golfing. As an avid golfer, he loved to play with his golf buddies and particularly with his grandsons. He would play no matter the weather because on golf day it was always going to be sunny.
Albert also had a passion for hockey, first demonstrated as he watched his own sons play the game he loved so much, and then watching his grandsons play hockey. Albert and Mickey could be found at almost all their games, cheering them and the team on, giving encouragement and the occasional coaching tip. When not at a game Albert and Mickey loved watching their Vancouver Canucks on TV.
The family offers heartfelt thanks for the care and attention by the doctors and nurses at BC Cancer, Fraser Valley Centre, particularly Drs. Gill and Lee and his family physician, Dr Benitez-Gomez. Albert’s family would also like to acknowledge and thank the wonderful staff at Peach Arch Hospital, who helped make Albert’s final journey one of peace. At this time, in lieu of flowers, kindly consider a donation to the BC Cancer Foundation.
A Celebration of Life will be held later in White Rock, BC, and Portage La Prairie, Manitoba.
