Al started working at a very young age with his family owned farm, “Sunshine Dairy”. He went to work at numerous jobs within the forest and trucking industry. He later went on to own his personal logging companies “Aljen Logging” and “Noble Creek Trucking”. Al employed numerous people with good jobs that helped provide for their families for many years. He retired on November 10, 2001 at the young age of 73.
Throughout Al’s adult life he was always active in many things especially, The Kamloops Pigeon and Poultry Club. Once retired he had more time to devote to his passion of helping organize The North Thompson Fall Fair each year and dedicated many hours between the poultry barn and keeping the fairgrounds cut and groomed.
He went on later to join his church and enjoy good food and friends especially, the company of his best friend, Roger.
Big Al had the biggest heart to match his size. He was always there for anyone that needed him. He was generous, hardworking, courageous, kind and sweet, always the social butterfly. We love and miss you Dad/Pop Pop.
A service honouring Al’s life will be held at Kamloops Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 364 Fortune Drive, Kamloops, On August 30, 2015 at 1:00 pm. Lunch to follow.
