Alfred was born on September 15, 1927 in Fannystelle, MB. He grew up farming as the family moved. Settling in Balmoral, he was a farmer there for nearly 70 years.

He worked his whole life, working in many industries. Working in construction, packing houses, sheet metal fabrication, as a taxi driver and delivering coal.
He always had a knack for building things to solve problems that would come up around the farm.

He is survived by three children, Roger (Diane), Duane (Roberta) and Debbie (Steve); his sisters, Jean (Bruno) and Bernice (Keith); sister-in-law Rosie (Peter); grandchildren, Jason, Cheryl, Keith, Pete, Nula and Daniel; eight great-grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
My deepest condolences to family on the passing of Alfred. He was a quiet, thoughtful gentleman, always helping others. I remember him working side by side on line for many years with me in packing house and always helping others. Josef (Joe) Weinfortner. - Posted by: Josef Weinfortner (coworker) on: Jun 13, 2021
