“I’m just gone to be with my precious daughter, Amy-Ann. Together we are now having a few chuckles and laughs with my Mom and my Dad. Please think of me when you see the flicker of the sunlight on the water and the soft ocean breeze that blows past your face. If you must bury something, let it be my faults and my weaknesses. If by chance you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word to someone you love. If you do all I have asked, I will live forever in your hearts.”
It is with broken hearts that the family of the late Alvin Graham Cull announces his sudden passing on Friday, August 05, 2022, in the Carbonear General Hospital. Alvin leaves to mourn the love of his life Barbara; his son Colby Graham Wayne (Jessica); his darling grandchildren, whom he adored and were the apple of his eye Jayden, Carson, and Caylee Amy-Ann Cull. He also leaves to mourn his sisters Ivy (Patrick) Fleming, Florence (Kevin) Anthony, Marie (Bill) Lambe, Eliza Cull (Frank) brother, Edgar William Cull (Angela) along with a large circle of family members including his many aunts and uncles; his cousins, nephews, and nieces.
Adored from day one, when his Mom counted his fingers and toes and looked into the greenest eyes she had ever seen, parenting with love took on a cherished role that lasted until her death on April 20, 1997. Al also leaves behind, with fond and fun memories, a warm circle of friends including lifelong best friends Peter and Rowena Zimola; his brothers-in-law Ron Brown, Wayne Brown (Gladys), and his sisters-in-law Eileen (Freeman) Pope and Linda (Reuben) Pollard.
He was predeceased by his daughter Amy-Ann, Mother Eliza (Smith) Cull, Father Graham Cull, Grandfathers William Cull and Edgar Smith, Grandmothers Eliza Cull, and Delilah Smith, and his niece Sharmein Brown. His Father-in-law Harold Brown and Mother-in-law Annie Brown.
From his earliest years, Alvin’s family watched him grow in awe of the outside world and of an outdoors full of adventure which he carried into his married life. He so loved fishing, camping, hunting, gardening, and just chatting and laughing around a kitchen table and of course a good game of crib and his favorite, a mean game of growl (120 ‘s). These are the times when Alvin was most at peace with the world. This passion lasted through to his very last days and could only be surpassed by his love for his family.
His children, Amy-Ann until her death on January 07, 1993, and Colby, were the reason for his very being. Colby was always present in his daily life; he was always on his mind and forever in his heart. Cole: Dad loved you!
In honoring his wishes cremation has taken place.

“For of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these: ‘It might have been!”
