Cecil Arnold (Allan) Haskell passed away in the Salmon Arm Hospital on January 1, 2014, at the age of 86 years. He was predeceased by his parents, Edith and George Haskell, sisters Irene and Marie, and brother Floyd.
He is survived by his wife Mattie, daughter Shaun, grandsons Michael (Victoria) and Joel, sisters Doris, Lorene, Diane (Henry), Shirley, sister-in-law Margaret, brothers Doug (Pat), Lorne (Pat), brother-in-law Dennis and numerous other relatives.
Al served in the Canadian Armed Forces from October 1951 to October 1966 in Canada and Egypt. He worked for the City of Calgary as a heavy duty mechanic from January 1971 until his retirement in 1992 when he moved to Salmon Arm.
He liked to go fishing, hunting, camping and, most of all, play golf. His pride and joy was his garden.
