Alexander William Mathieson

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our father and grandfather at Shuswap Lake General Hospital on March 1, 2016 with his loving family by his side. Dad is survived by his children Shelley, Alex (Betty), and Robert (Charlene). Grandpa will be fondly remembered by his grandchildren Mike (Char), Alicia (Colter), Jeffrey (Jenn), Trevor (Trish), Shawn (Bree), Ashley (Mike), Colton, Alex (Dallas), great grandchildren and loving feline companion Spaz as well as extended family members. He was predeceased by his parents Alex and Nellie Mathieson, sister Phyllis Kavalinas, nephew Clayton Kavalinas and son-in-law Robert Billick. Dad was born in Stettler, Alberta and raised in Halkirk, Alberta. He moved with his family to Canoe, BC as a young man. He spent most of his working career in the logging industry and enjoyed farming as well. Dad loved gardening and shared the fruits of his labor with family and friends. Dad was well known for his yellow hard hat that he wore everywhere for many years before retiring it. Rodeos were another passion of his but most of all his priority was spending time with his family. Dad`s presence among us will be deeply missed. A service celebrating Dad’s life will be held on Saturday, March 26, 2016 at 11am at Bowers funeral chapel. A reception will follow the service. Should family and friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the Shuswap Hospice Society or charity of choice. Online condolences may be sent through Dad’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com.
