Alfred Anton Pfister

July 19, 1934 - May 12, 2024

Tribute

It is with great sadness that the family of Alfred Anton Pfister announce his sudden passing in Powell River on Sunday May 12, 2024.

Alfred, known as Fred, was born in Leimen, Germany on July 19, 1934.  In 1952, Fred immigrated to Canada where he settled in Powell River, BC.  Fred enjoyed a long and successful career of 40 + years at the MacMillan Bloedel pulp mill where he started out as a millright and progressed into a supervisory role until his retirement.  Fred was highly respected by his crew and supervisors and known to always do what was needed to get the job done.  Through the years, Fred’s passions included swimming where he won numerous awards in Germany, hunting, fishing, watching hockey, scuba diving as well as riding his ATV through the backroads of Powell River always with Delores hanging on for dear life on the back of the quad. 

Fred will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 47 years, Delores; children Simone (Paul) Kutz, Ron (Dianne) Pfister, stepchildren Len (Rita) Knapp and Guy (Nina) Knapp; grandchildren Melinda (Jason), Sherenna (Anthony), Scott, Allan (Miriam), Amanda (Darian) Brody (Natahlie); great grandchildren Keanna-Lee, Taylor, Alexzanderia and Ronan; numerous other family members including Fred’s sisters-in-laws, nieces Monika and Barbara and nephews Werner and Walter from Germany.  Fred was predeceased by his parents Peter and Marie; siblings, Trudel and Otto; and his nephew Michael.

The family would like to thank the MSP 4th floor and ECU nurses and staff for their care of Fred.

Fred will be dearly missed by family and friends.  We are all blessed by having Fred in our lives and will cherish his memories forever.
