Alfred (Brown) HUSBAND


April 30, 1928-August 25, 2014

The family of Alfred (Brown) announces his passing at Swan Valley Lodge in Creston, BC on Monday, August 25, 2014 at the age of 86.

Alfred was born to parents Ivy and Henry Husband on April 30, 1928 in Innisfail, AB.

Dad was a hardworking man all of his life, kind to a fault, master of many crafts, compassionate, and a great teacher to his children. His nickname “Brown” was well-earned from the many hours he spent in the outdoors. He began his working career as a gentleman farmer in Alberta and spent his later years in the construction industry in British Columbia. In his free time he enjoyed walking, square dancing, and traveling across the country visiting his children.

Dad will be fondly remembered for a spirit of giving that was often reflected in his willingness to help others. He touched the lives of many and his children will always be proud to claim him as their father.

Alfred was predeceased by his parents Ivy and Henry Husband and his two brothers Henry Husband and Roy (Nip) Husband. He is survived by his former wife and mother of his children, Betty Husband; sons Rob (Helen) Husband and Jim Husband; daughter Brenda (Joe) Wilkie; five grandchildren Charity (Landon) Fehr, Amy Husband, Anthony Husband, Jeremy Wilkie, Sebastian (Julie) Wilkie; three great-grandchildren, Asher Fehr, Hannah Wilkie and Aiden Wilkie; sister Gladys Doel of Wetaskawin, Alberta, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
