Obituary

Alex Hurrie It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Alex Hurrie on May 10, 2018. Alex was born in Mimico, Ontario, in 1923 and was the oldest of four children. He spent his childhood helping his father with the family salvage business and enjoying all the neighbourhood friends. Alex was drafted into the army to fight in the WWII but pulled some strings and managed to get into the navy. He spent four years on convoy duty in the North Atlantic. After the war Alex married Muriel McDuff and had one son, Sam. He worked many jobs but his favourite was driving tractor trailer. In 1968 Alex moved his family to Powell River where they bought a piece of land south of town and built their little home. Alex worked as a custodian for School District 47 until his retirement in 1986. He spent his time enjoying his grandchildren, puttering in his workshop, raising his beloved pigeons, riding his motorcycle, and driving his Cadillac to A&W to meet up with his friends. Left to mourn is his son Sam (Jill), grandchildren Samantha, Dan and Suzannah (Paul), their mother Barbara, nine great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. The family would like to thank Dr. Elliot, the loving staff at Willingdon Creek Village House 5, the housekeeping and laundry staff, Father Tepoorten, Stubberfield Funeral Home and Catholic Women’s League.
