Elwin (Al) Reimer passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, May 11, 2008 with his wife Susan Turner at his side. He was born 71 years ago at Lowe Farm in Manitoba and lived his life in the west.
As an agrologist, Al had a deep connection to the land and continued to work well past retirement age. He was also an active member of the Bow River Lodge No.1 and the Tin Lizzie Corps of the Shrine Temple, where he enjoyed the service and camaraderie. When he wasn’t busy with his grandchildren, Al was known to swing his clubs and cheer on the home teams rain or shine.
Al was well-loved, which is the true measure of a man. He will be dearly missed by his devoted wife Susan; his children, Brian, Andrea, Dean, Monica, and Scott; his grandchildren, Willis, Pearce, Roan, Cole, Dylan, Carson, Courtney, Matthew, Blair, and Jeffery; and by friends and family.
