ALBERTS Arnie J. “The Telephone Man”

July 2, 1942 ~ Nov. 9, 2011. Arnie was taken too soon by Leukemia. He leaves behind his wife Kathy, children Dana and Laura (Chad Riggins), siblings Adam (Katsuko), Conrad, Tony (Colette), Lucy (John Peranzi), Luke (Carolyn), Alan, Anita, Alex, and Paul (Josie). He is predeceased by his parents Dr. J.J. and Maria Alberts, and brother Andrew. Arnie was a kind, generous, humble, helpful, and happy man with a clever sense of humor; he was truly one of a kind. A proud TWU brother of Local #32 for 45 years who leaves a huge hole in all of our lives and will be missed immensely. We would like to thank the Dr.s and nurses of the VGH BMT team as well as the Volunteer Drivers and BC Ambulance Services for their service to our family. A tribute to Arnie will take place Saturday November 26, 2011 at 2:00 pm at Cedar Valley Mennonite Church, 32840 Janzen Ave., Mission, BC. Please share your photos and stories @ or
