It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Albert Harold Hurst at the age of 77, after a short but courageous battle with cancer.
Albert was born in Port Credit, Ontario on July 25, 1931 and moved to the district of Parry Sound in 1949. There he married Betty Rose Horne on June 27, 1959 and moved his family to Calgary in 1974.
Albert was deeply loved and will be sorely missed by his loving wife, seven children, fourteen grandchildren, one great-grandchild, nine brothers, six sisters and all who knew him. We would like to thank the doctors, nurses and support staff at the Foothills Hospital.
Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Wednesday, April 1, 2009 at 1:00 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
