WILSON, Alvin (Al) Ronald

April 15, 1934 – St. Walberg, Saskatchewan

It is with great sadness that the family announce the peaceful passing of Alvin (Al) Ronald Wilson, beloved husband of Gail Wilson, of Okotoks, on Wednesday, October 10, 2018 at the age of 84 years.

Alvin grew up in Edmonton and was employed by Alberta Highways where he surveyed many of the routes we now use, including the road from Calgary to Banff. He was then hired by Environment Canada and moved to the Northwest Territories with his young family to measure much of the country’s fresh water. Upon retirement, Al and Gail moved to Okotoks where he was employed by D’arcy Ranch Golf Course as a marshal for the next twenty-five years.

Besides his loving wife of sixty-three years, Gail, Al is survived by his two sons and daughters-in-law, Kim and Rita and Terry and Lynne; four grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; sister Beatrice; and brother Jimmy. Al was predeceased by his father Oliver, mother Clara and his brother Harold.

  1. Al lived beside my nan and grandad here in Okotoks for years and helped us so much when my grandad died and my nan was alone. Even when my nan was toward the end of her life Al was there for us and watching her, now they can say hi again as angels in heaven. I have been cutting his lawn for many years now, I’m so saddened to hear of his passing and will miss his smile and his talk of the weather and the golf course whenever we would talk. Al you will be missed so much, now an angel and at peace ❤️❤️❤️❤️
