Alfred Richard Reeves

July 5, 1923, Henribourgh, Sask. – May 17, 2016

With great sadness we announce the

passing of our beloved husband, father,

grandfather, uncle and friend. Alf leaves

behind his wife of 56 years, Betty with

whom he created an adventurous life .

He is survived by his children Rick, Sue

(Jake), Dave, Greg, (Yami) Frank and

Kathy (Neil) and Mary; 11 grandchildren,

8 great grandchildren; brother Ed (Lil),

many friends family and extended family.

Alf is predeceased by his parents, 3 sisters and 3 brothers.

Alf, a WWII Veteran, was very proud to have served in the Queens

Navy which inspired his love for travel. Alf loved the outdoors,

fishing and camping and travelling abroad. He never passed up

a chance to express his political views, welcomed or not. He

cherished family and friends and he talked at length with everyone

he encountered making friends fast with his quick wit and sharp

sense of humor. Gardening was one of his greatest passions and

it was not unusual to find vegetables in with his flowers much to

Mom’s dismay! His birdhouses, painted by Mom, were scattered

around their yard.

Alf conducted life with optimism, loyalty and respect. His

unconditional love for family and friends will forever be

remembered. The world lost a special man. Keep winking from

the other side Dad!

We would like to thank Dr. Fletcher and the staff of Evergreen

Baptist Care Home D2 wing for their loving and patient care of

Dad. Celebration of Life will be held on June 12, 2016, 1:00 pm
