Al was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. When he was 12 years old he moved to Vancouver with his uncle Charlie Whiteman. He later went into the forest industry, engineering, road building etc.

His greatest love was fishing and camping with his children and grandchildren. He also enjoyed gardening cooking and many other interests. For many years he quietly helped many people along the way and especially young people. He was also known as one of the paper boys in Kamloops, who walked the streets with his dog “Sadie” delivering papers.

The family would like to thank our dearest friends the Clare family for their support.
