ALEXANDER ERNEST COURQUIN
July 5, 1922 – January 10, 2016
It is with great sadness to announce the sudden and peaceful passing of Alec (Corky) on January 10th at Stanford Place. His loving son & daughter in-law were by his side when he took his last breath.
Alec was born in Ft. McMurray, grew up in Vancouver and spent most of his working life in Richmond. He was a communication specialist during WWII and later worked at CP Rail as a typist. He retired from BC Tel in 1982 and moved to Qualicum Beach.
He was a legion member for 56 years, an avid golfer… shot “9 hole-in-ones” in his lifetime, and loved to dance, along with his wife Ev, who pre-deceased him.
Alec was a very independent hard working, loyal and generous man and successfully lived in his own home till he was 92. He will be fondly remembered for his wit, charm and his delicious homemade pecan and pumpkin pies.
He will be dearly missed by his son, Dale (Rosemary); 3 granddaughters Jasmine (Steve), Carla & Georgia and his great grandson Alexander.
A private funeral was held at Yates Funeral Home on January 16, 2016.
Rest In Peace
“Forever in our Hearts”
