It is with heavy hearts that the family of Al announce the sudden passing of our beloved dad, son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend.
Al did what he could for his children, he enjoyed teasing, laughing, joking and socializing with family and friends. He loved watching his favourite hockey team the Edmonton Oilers. Al always tried to make it out to visit friends, he enjoyed his visits with auntie Shirley, cousin Val, his brothers Wayne, Russell and Murray and most of all buddies Dennis and Edward.
In his younger years Al played hockey for the Pine Creek War Lords and the Warriors as well as fastball and slow pitch. He enjoyed working at bingo’s in the community and playing the game as well.
Al grew up in Pine Creek with his mom and brothers, attended school in Pine Creek and Dauphin. He then made his home in Pine Creek where he lived with his son Baby Al. Al worked a number of years doing carpentry work along side his uncle Alec, brother Wayne and cousins Bob and Sonnyboy.
The love Al had for his children, a very proud moment for him was seeing his Baby Al receive his High School Diploma. He loved spending time with his baby girl Allie Rose helping her with her homework, watching and arguing about hockey (who had the better team). He loved joking and wrestling with his baby boy T.T.

You will be truly missed Big Al. You were one of a kind. You will be remembered always for the love you had for your family and friends.
