A life of celebration changed suddenly on January 20, 2003 when our dear father Alfred entered Eternity; joining those he had long missed.
Active and joyful until the end, his spirit lives on in the hearts of his three daughters, Valorie (John) Smith, Brenda (Louis) St. Pierre and Marietta (Johan) Woulterloot, his 7 grandchildren, Jonathan, Elise, Cameron, Kristianna, Karl, Louis and Elliott.
Also a treasured brother to Serafino (Dora) and sister Ida; brother-in-law to Katherine, Otto (Gerry), John (Debbie) and Sylvia (Jack), beloved cousin, uncle and friend. Alfred was predeceased by his beautiful wife of fifty years, Jennie May.
Alfred will be remembered for his loving and kind way. He always took the time to enjoy a chat and find out a little more about everyone. Alfred prized knowledge and continued to learn and share his whole life long. Central to his life was social justice; any contributions or acts in his name are deeply appreciated.
