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!
