<div itemprop="description">It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandfather and great-grandfather on Tuesday, February 16, 2016.<br />Albert passed away surrounded by family at the University of Alberta Hospital after a short but courageous struggle with pneumonia at the age of 81. Albert was a proud member of the UTU Local 1233 for 35 years during his career at CN Rail where he worked as a switchman and later conductor until his retirement in November 1990. He had amazing perseverance that allowed him nearly six extra years with the family after suffering a severely debilitating stroke in April 2010. During his additional time he was able to attend several key family events that brought him great joy.<br />Left to cherish his memory are his daughter Barbara (Ken) McAlpine and his son Brian (Shelley), five grandchildren; Ryan (Laura), Corey, Kevin (Jessica), Steven (Dakota), Larissa (Bailey) and great-grandson Joshua. Albert was predeceased by his loving wife of 56 years Carol and brother, John.<br />Albert will always be remembered for the love he had for his family, the wonderful times fishing, and his presence at any event his grandchildren participated in. <br />A celebration of Albert&rsquo;s life will be held on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 at 10:00 am at Evergreen Funeral Chapel, 16204 Fort Road, Edmonton. Albert&rsquo;s final resting place will be with his wife Carol at Evergreen Memorial Gardens.<br />In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta.<br /></div>
