Peacefully on September 7, 2020, Alex left this world to be with his Lord.
Cherishing his life are his daughter Christy Bedard; grandchildren, Veronique (Dan), Daniel and Ginette; great-granddaughters, Elise and Clara; and brother Neil. He was predeceased by Evelyn, his wife of 57 years; youngest daughter Julie Ann Dinelle; son-in-law Louis Bedard, and his five sisters.
Family was most important to Alex, and he took great pride in his daughters, grandchildren and great-granddaughters.
Alex spent most of his career as a social worker at the CNIB, where he helped make great advances for adults and children living with visual disabilities.
Alex's family wish to express much thanks to the staff at The Convalescent Home of Winnipeg. When we couldn't be with him due to the pandemic, we knew he was being lovingly cared for.
There will be a private celebration of Alex's life.
In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations in memory of Alex may be made to Winnipeg Harvest or Siloam Mission.

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • Cristy, so sorry to read of your father's passing. My condolences to you and your family. It was always a pleasure to chat with him so many years ago in your parent's home and then, more recently, at the Kiwanis Centre on Ness. I will remember him as a kind and thoughtful person. - Posted by: Donald McNabb (Friend) on: Sep 20, 2020

  • Compassion is what I think of when I remember Alex. He told me his blindness made him aware of so many other things that are important. He was tenacious, loyal, thoughtful, and had a great sense of humour. Alex taught me so much during his time at Kiwanis, and it was an honour to know him. - Posted by: Colleen GrahamNorth (Friend) on: Sep 16, 2020

  • I remember Alex as a man of deep convictions, keen intellect and a genuine concern for those in need. He was an insightful and knowledgeable contributor at our Bible Study groups. One comment always stuck with me. We were discussing our images of God and Alex said that for him, as a blind person, God was not an image but a feeling - the feeling of being held. I am thankful for his life and the knowledge that he is held forever in God's loving arms - Posted by: Colin Peterson (Friend) on: Sep 13, 2020

  • I worked with Alex at the CNIB. He was always kind, considerate and empathetic- in his relations with his staff or with the clients. He often spoke of his family, and his love for them. The world needs more caring men like Alex. Rest in peace. - Posted by: Margaret Bricknell (Part of staff at CNIB) on: Sep 12, 2020

  • Alex was such an important part of Crestview United church. He was such a kind gentleman and I enjoyed the chats I had with him at MKC while he was there. My deepest sympathy to his daughter and family. His Crestview family will miss him. - Posted by: Sue Gustafson (Church Friend) on: Sep 12, 2020

  • Our condolences to Christy and your family. Loosing a father is difficult, no matter the circumstances. Your Dad, was always so thoughtful and kind. His regular phone calls with my mom were always appreciated and will be missed. Thinking of you-Cheryl, Andre and family. - Posted by: Cheryl Dyer-Vigier (Niece ) on: Sep 12, 2020
