Cherished brother of Anne (Paul), Peggy, Philomena, Joanie, Hazel, Bill (Binka), Ronnie (Marilyn), Predeceased by his brothers; Jack and Art. Predeceased by sisters; Mary, Joy, and Theresa. Al was a treasured brother-in-law and uncle who will be missed by many nieces, nephews, and family friends. Al was born in his family home in Margaree Forks, Nova Scotia. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian medical corps and served as a medic. He spent time abroad in Germany, while in the service (at the same time Elvis Presley was there!). When Al came to Ontario, he met the one and only true love of his life Vicki. Alec had a long career as a certified welder. Al was known for being a sun worshiper. He spent many days walking the beaches of Port Dover and Turkey Point. Al always had the best tan on the beach! He lived his life in the fast lane; however, he appreciated all the simple things life had to offer. He had a tough exterior, but a very soft heart. Alec loved his hound dogs, Butch and Buddy. Over the years he enjoy driving his Harley Davidson Motorcycle, red Camero, Black Cadillac and boat. Alex was always wearing his vintage Levi’s jeans, jean jacket, polished cowboy boots and stylish aviator sunglasses -while holding his Tim Hortons coffee. Al had many adventures with his grandchildren, Tori, and Noah. Memories that will now be cherished. He lived his life; “his way or the highway” or he will “dropkick” you through the goalposts of life”. Alec’s family would like to thank PSW’s Donna and Marnie, his nurse Melanie and Dr. Montour for caring for him over the last years of his life. Also thank you to the staff at Stedman Community Hospice. Cremation has taken place. SERENITY BURIAL & CREMATION SERVICES INC., 361 Main Street, Port Dover (226) 290-9093 have been entrusted with the arrangements. A private memorial will be held in January. Al’s wishes were to be taken home to Cape Breton for his final resting place. In lieu of flowers, donations in Al’s name to the SPCA would be appreciated. Online condolences can be left at
“Tears are little drops of water which contain millions of feelings and thousands of unspoken words”. Dad thank you for that last tear. I hope you found the beach in heaven.
Love you always your little girl,
Carrie Joy
