Al’s journey with us ended suddenly on April 24, 2012. Al was born in McBride BC on February 23, 1969. He grew up in Salmon Arm, and he worked at Lakeland Mill in Prince George for the last 17 years. Although he was taken too soon, he was content and found peace and “magic” with his life partner, Jo, and their beautiful home and property.
Al is survived by his life partner, Jo Burrows; mother, Deanna Little from Salmon Arm; dad, John (Maryann) Little of Sidney, BC; brothers, Andy (Pam) of Campbell River, Steve (Jennifer) of Vanderhoof, Jim (Donna) of Chilliwack; step-siblings, Cheryl (Mike) Kimber of Sidney, BC, Chad (Kim) Schaff of Saanich, BC; nine nieces and nephews; 1 great-niece; 1 great nephew and many great friends.
Al was an amazing man who lived his life with integrity and dedication. His presence was always noticed and he had an innate ability to connect with others and a common sense approach to life. Al was known as a “gentle giant” who was always there to listen or help his friends. He was a great conversationalist, and he always had a unique perspective on life. Al was also a talented writer, and published his book, Wolf Dreams. He was most content in his garden, enjoying the outdoors and he loved animals.
Al will forever be loved and missed.
Thanks to all who tried to assist Al and our family during this tragic time.
