Alexander (Al) Richard Gardener

Alexander (Al) Richard Gardner, dearly beloved husband of Cathy Gardner of Lumby, BC, passed away Tuesday, July 7, 2009 at the age of 76. Al was a very dynamic man and always left behind a great impression (sometimes good and sometimes not so good), but people always remembered him. He lived a full life and served his God faithfully to the end. He will be sorely missed by his wife, Cathy and their two children, Christopher Gardner and Tara Gardner; his many other children; his sisters Norma Leger and Pat (David) Zasadni; and his brother John (Angele) Gardner.

A memorial will be held for him at the Lumby Kingdom Hall, 256 Mabel Lake Road, Lumby, at 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, July 15. A tea will follow at the Gardner ranch at 804 Mabel Lake Road, Lumby, for those who wish to pay their respects to the family.
