“Loss and possession, death and life are one. There falls no shadow where there shines no sun.” Hilaire Beloc
We are deeply saddened to announce Al’s sudden passing at St Mary’s Hospital in Sechelt, B.C. on Sunday November 08, 2015.
Al is lovingly remembered by his partner and good friend, Carol Doyle, and her children and grandchildren all of whom welcomed him into their family. As one of four children, Al is survived by his sister Doreen and brothers Wayne and Stephen, all of Saskatchewan. Al was predeceased by his special aunt Celia, a most important person in his life.
Al was a tireless proponent of the Sunshine Coast and in his role as Executive Director, Community Futures Economic Development, Sunshine Coast BC from 2000 – 2009, worked diligently in helping make that belief and commitment a reality.
All who had the opportunity to meet him, will remember Al as a warm, friendly and sensitive man whose presence and personality would fill a room, frequently punctuated by his infectious, engaging laugh.
An avid member of Rotary, Al believed in service above self for others and community. Fund-raiser, ticket-seller, barbecue ‘chef’, clean-up worker, executive member, Al was always ready to jump in and do his part.
A successful executive, Al served in a variety of senior leadership positions in the Provincial Governments of both Saskatchewan and British Columbia including roles as Director/Deputy Minister, Ministry of Regional Economic Development and Financial Institutions (Saskatchewan) and Superintendant Financial Institutions and Real Estate (British Columbia) respectively.
Al recently retired back to the Sunshine Coast in 2014, after serving as the Chief Administration Officer for three years for the City of Kimberley, B.C.
Expressions of sympathy in lieu of flowers can be sent to Rotary Canada Foundation.
A celebration of Al’s life will be held @ Sunshine Coast Golf Club on December 07, 2015 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
