Condolences & Memories (8 entries)

  • With deepest sympathy, Claire and families. Al was the first person I spoke to as I planned to move to the building. He was friendly and welcoming. I knew then, this was a good place to be. Lovely service. - Posted by: Dianne Goertzen (friend from Kirchhoff) on: Mar 25, 2022

  • Truly sad to hear of Al passing. Always had a good laugh or two at KP having coffee with the Buors family. He will be missed by all of us. Take care to Claire and boys. Roy and Debbie Nolan - Posted by: Roy and Deb Nolan (Friends) on: Mar 20, 2022

  • I have known Alphone and Claire for most of my life being a relative of Claire. I will always remember him for his generosity and sense of family. I remember him telling me stories of when he was a dog catcher for Winnipeg at the time pitbulls were banned. I had asked him if he was afraid and he said no. He'd rather do that then work in the last job he had in the city. I remember that he wanted to restore vehicles in his shop in Lorette. To Claire, Jean-Claude, Mario and the whole family, our deepest condolences and may he rest in peace. Another good one gone. May your legs be strong now my friend. - Posted by: Claude (cousin) on: Mar 19, 2022

  • Claire et famille. Je vous offre mes sincères sympathies. Vous étiez de très bons amis pendant votre temps à Lorette. J'espère de te revoir, Claire. Tiens bon courage...perdre notre partenaire de vie n'est pas facile, mais, avec le support de ta famille et tes amis, tu vas t'en sortir...une journée à la fois. - Posted by: Gisèlle Fiola LeGal (Friend) on: Mar 19, 2022

  • Our sinceres sympathies to Claire and family - Posted by: Paul and Claudette (Friends) on: Mar 19, 2022

  • Even though I haven't seen Al for many years I was truly sorry to hear of his passing. One of the few great friends I've had in my lifetime. We worked together for years in the same department for the City of Winnipeg in Transcona along with Lynn Bruce. I played hockey with Al's brothers Rene and Pete in the Boni/Vital hockey league. Also knew his brother Horace as well. Life often takes you in different directions and so Al, Lynn and myself ultimately left for various other city departments. All my best to Claire and the boys. - Posted by: Dave & Terry Sidley (Old friends) on: Mar 19, 2022
