Allan Michael PRICE
January 22, 1955 – January 4, 2016
It is with great sadness and heaviness of heart that we announce the passing of Al Price lovingly remembered as “Poppa Al”, “Almo”, and “AP”.
Al will be dearly missed by his wife and partner of 18 years, Dianne; stepdaughter, Jessi (Shawn); grandsons, Liam and Kain; brother, Brian (Sue); Nephew, Michael; sisters-in-law, Cheryl (Burton) and Angie, and many, many friends and extended family members.
Al and Dianne moved to Qualicum Beach for semi-retirement in the early spring of 1998 and travelled extensively the first few years to southern California and Mexico. Al loved nothing more than the feeling of warm sun on his face. He was very involved with fitness, playing soccer as a young man and then later golf, going to the gym, and playing ball, the latter with team members half his age. He then decided to pursue a passion for natural health and healing, so with Dianne, they purchased Back To Nature Health Centre in Qualicum Beach. He will be remembered for his genuine concern and warm hugs available to all who came through their doors.
God looked around his garden
And found an empty space;
He then looked down upon this earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest,
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain.
He knew you might never
Get well upon this earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the Hills were hard to climb,
So He whispered, “Peace be thine.”
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you never went alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
A heartfelt thank you to all who helped in making his final journey a loving, caring, and compassionate one.
A Celebration of Life will be held in Al’s honour
in the spring as the blossoms burst forth into life. Date and location to be announced.
In lieu of flowers, please consider honouring Al’s memory by making a donation in his name to the ALS Society of BC.
