Obituary for Alvin Tubbs
It is with profound sadness we announce the sudden passing of our dear brother, Alvin on Saturday, November 10, 2018 at his home in Assiniboia, Sk. He was born in Penticton, B.C. February, 28, 1943. Is survived by his wife, Lien; brothers, Irvin (Maria) of Assiniboia, Sk, Dell (Darlene) of Canal Flats, Gerald (Diane) of Campbell River, and sister, Lucille Dennis of North Vancouver, B.C. He is predeceased byhis father Bert, mother Nettie, brother Roland, sister Diane and both Alvin’s children, son Bert and daughter Cindy.
Alvin was a man of many talents. He fell trees in B.C., was a heavy equipment operator, drove long haul transport trucks. He was a fishing guide on the West Coast and he excelled in Gunsmithing which was his passion.
There will be no public viewing or funeral for Alvin. Rest in peace dear brother.
The Family would like to thank Alvin’s Family Physician, Dr. Eric Moore and Staff, Piche-Hawkins-Grondin Funeral Chapel Staff, the many friends for their calls of support, members from Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, in particular, Lynn Condi who gave support to Lien and Alvin at the Regina General Hospital, and Glennis Thomson who stayed overnight with Lien at the home of Irvin and Maria Tubbs. A very special thank you to Dr. Dwight Vallee who was first to comfort Lien and notified Alvin’s brother Irvin that Alvin had passed away. Dr. Vallee and his wife, Joanne were outstanding friends and neighbors who extended their kindness and friendship to Alvin and Lien during the past ten years. For that the family is forever thankful.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Alvin Tubbs February 28 1943 –
