Alfred Stephen Zugelder

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our dear Dad, Brother, Uncle, and Friend, Alfred Zugelder. Alfred, also known by many as “Al”, passed away peacefully on Sunday afternoon October 25th, 2015.
On September 5, 1959, Alfred was born in Goodsoil, SK and raised in Edson, AB. Alfred resided in Maple Ridge to be near his two children, ex-wife and close friend, Bonnie Morrill (Zirk). Diagnosed in late September, Alfred had a brief battle with liver cancer, all while spending quality time with his family and friends.
Alfred is survived by his loving Mom, Ethel , Father Otto, and his 3 siblings, Richard (Cindy) Zugelder, Rose (Dan) Mellersh, Tammy Zugelder and his many nieces and nephews. Alfred was a proud Father to Brianne (Paul) & Justin (Kat) Zugelder and adored the time he shared with them.
Everyone always loved to soak up Alfred’s kind nature and sense of humor. He was fast to make friends wherever he went and his connections with people were very important to him. Alfred spent years in the construction business, running his own vinyl siding company. Since retired, he loved to spend his time outdoors near the Fraser River dreaming about fishing.

The celebration of Alfred’s life will be held at Garden Hill Funeral Home (11764-224th Street, Maple Ridge, BC V2X 6A5) on Monday November 2nd, 2015 at 1:00pm with a tea to follow.

  1. We were friends since the mid-seventies and Alfred was always fun to spend time with.
    We had many fishing adventures in the Edson area and although it has been years since we had seen each other, he always held a special place in my memory bank.
    He will always be well thought of in my house and I know he is fishing for that next big one right now. Save me a spot at the next fishing hole Alfred.

    Wishing warm thoughts to all family and friends of Alfred.

  2. We would like to send our condolences to Alfred’s family and friends, Alfred was one of my favourite cousins and always reminded me of Kermit the frog , although I have not seen him for many years thinking about him always brought a smile to my face!
    Rest in Peace, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Ken and Gayle Piecharka
