Coley, Albert George

COLEY, ALBERT wJuly 27, 1933 – July 1, 2015
at the age of 81 years

It is with great sadness that we advise Albert took his last journey at dusk on Canada Day with family by his side.

Predeceased by his mother Mamie, father George and infant son Marlon. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 59 years Eunice, children Pamela MacLean, Cynthia (Terry) Muchowski, Kathryn Loewen and Martin Coley, grandchildren Dale, Jennifer, Matthew and Shawna, sisters Joyce Fuchs and Rosemarie (Bob) Fix, brothers Leroy (Alma), George (Jolene), Dennis (Carol), Darrell (Donna) and their extended families.

Albert was born on a farm at Clyde, AB, however farming was not for him, instead he went into finance and then sales which meant living in Edmonton, Calgary, Port Coquitlam and finally upon retirement on acreage at Sicamous, BC. He was passionate about family, country and politics. He enjoyed meeting new people and new places and in 1992 he and son Martin drove across Canada, something he had always wanted to do.  He will be missed.

The family would like to thank Dr. Main and nurses, Shuswap Lake Hospital staff, his caring Dr.’s Willms and Rose during his valiant fight with cancer. We would also like to thank the wonderful caring staff at Bastion Place Hospice curing his last days. A family memorial to be held at a later date. Contributions in Albert’s name may be made to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation, Box 265, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4N3 or a charity of choice.

  2. So sorry to hear about the passing of Al. Mike & I enjoyed talking to Al about politics, he would get so excited & of course we did as well. We spent most of our time laughing with him. Our thoughts are with Eunice & family.
