It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Earl Alfred Adams on Sunday, November 12, 2023, at Grace Hospital.
He is survived by his loving wife Cathy Kushneryk; sister Marilyn McQuay; niece Andrea Garcia; nephew Michael Garcia; sisters-in-law, Maureen Mark, Wendy Dram, and Carol Fazackerley; and best friends, John Harvey and Beverley Holmes. He also will be missed by the cat Greta (aka TO3) who is still waiting for him to come home and play with her.
Alf was a member of the Canadian Forces serving over 39 years in Canada, Germany, peacekeeping duty in the Middle East and with the RCAF. His last posting was with 402 Squadron. In retirement he spent many hours volunteering with 402 Squadron History and Heritage. He was a long-standing member of IPMS Model Club.
At a future date a Celebration of Life will be held.
In lieu of flowers, please watch an episode of Star Trek TV series or a tennis match. Alf will be watching it with you in spirit.
The family wishes to thank Ethical Death Care for the beautiful photo-biography video they have provided in celebration of Alf’s life. This can be viewed by following the "tributes" link at the bottom of this obituary.
