Passed away suddenly March 10, 2004. Born May 4, 1927 in Sundre, Alberta. Al is lovingly remembered by his wife of 57 years, Beverley, his daughter Anne Marie (Bill), sons Randy (Nadine), Jim (Sylvia), 5 grandsons, 2 granddaughters, 10 grand dogs, 4 sisters, 5 sister-in-laws, 1 brother-in-law and many nieces and nephews. Family always came first with Al and he will be remembered for his generosity of heart. There are those who have little and give it all. These are the believers in life and the bounty of life, and their coffee is never empty. There are those that give with joy and that joy is their reward. And there are those who give and know not pain in giving, nor do they seek joy nor give with mindfulness of virtue; They give us in yonder valley the myrtle breathes it’s fragrance into space. Through the hands of such as these God speaks & from behind their eyes He smiles upon the earth. Memorial Service March 14, 2004, 2:00 pm. New Beginnings Community Church, 4300 Bella Vista Road, Vernon. In lieu of flowers donations to: Ducks Unlimited, Habitat Fund/Al Mennear, 954A Laval Crescent, Kamloops V2C 5P5.
