Alphonse Farkas (86), of Logan Lake, B.C. passed away Sunday, Nov. 10, 2019, at Marjory Willoughby Hospice Home in Kamloops.
A Service will be held at a later date in Lethbridge, Alta. where his final resting place will be.
Al was born in Stockholm, Sask. on Feb. 12, 1933, to Barney and Mary (Yanyu). He grew up in Swift Current and Lethbridge.
Al married Doreen Thom, his wife of 66 years. Together they have five children: Linda, Heather (Bob Spiers), Alan (Celine), Craig and Patrick (Allison); 12 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
His career path began in service and sales at Ferguson Supply in Lethbridge, then relocating to Grande Prairie, Edmonton, Saskatoon and then the Okanagan Valley. He pursued his dream of building his own home in Winfield. This was when his passion for masonry and construction developed and his artistic side unfolded.
Our family would like to express thanks to Fr. Derrick Cameron, Nicola Meadows Retirement in Merritt, the wonderful care received at RIH, 6th floor N and to the Marjory Willoughby Hospice where Al died peacefully with family at his side.
