Alvin Henry Albrecht

April 21, 1935 – June 9, 2019
Born in Krupp, Saskatchewan
He is predeceased by his parents Henry Albrecht and Frieda Neitz. He married Cathy Van Aert in 1957 and together they raised 4 boys. He was a hard worker, passing this trait on to all his boys. Al was a hobby farmer. He ran his own Shell station in Coquitlam before hiring on to Coquitlam Automotive to run their machine shop, finally retiring in 1997 at the age of 62.
He and Cathy loved to travel and losing his leg to cancer did not hinder that, driving across Canada twice, with their little dog sitting between them in the truck.
His loss is deeply felt but he will live forever in our hearts and memories, and when we look at the legacy he has left behind in the eyes of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
He is survived by his wife Cathy; 4 children, Henry (Michelle), Brian (Mary), Christopher (Donna), Michael (Lisa); 12 grandchildren; 9 great grandchildren; as well as many friends and family.
Funeral Mass will be on Saturday, June 15th at 10:30 AM at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church – 22561 121 ave, Maple Ridge. Interment to follow at Maple Ridge Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Ridge Meadows Hospice Society would be greatly appreciated.

    Dear Cathy and Family,

    Our deepest sympathy in the loss of Al. He was a wonderful, always smiling, kind man. We are sorry we are out of province for the summer so won’t be able to attend the funeral. We will keep you and the family in our prayers at this time. God Bless.

  10. I’ll never forget going with Uncle Al to a BC Lions game back in 1984. I would have been about 11 years old at the time. I still have the playbook 35 years later. Just one of the great memories with Uncle Al.

    Uncle Al’s contagious laughter was second to none and is something we will greatly miss. Our most sincere condolences.
