WERBOWSKY, Alfred Jacob

May 6, 1957 – February 16, 2016


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear Al at Gillis House, Merritt BC, on February 16, 2016 at the age of 58. Al courageously fought cancer but couldn’t win. He is now at peace. Al was born in Kamloops, lived in Little Fort, Brookmere, Hope and Lower Nicola. Al spent his school years in Hope. In 1976 he moved to Merritt to work for Nicola Valley Sawmills-Tolko where he worked for 35+ years. In Merritt he met the “love of his life” Lizzy Huston. Leaving behind to remember Al are his loving wife Lizzy, his son Lloyd, his parents Bob & Diane Werbowsky, his brothers: Ralph (Debbie), Olaf Duemler (Helen), Klaus Duemler (Martina), Harley and dear Chico. He also leaves many sisters and brothers in-law, nieces and nephews, and friends who lovingly remember him. A Celebration of Life for Al will be held on March 5, 2016 in Lower Nicola Community Hall at 11:30 am. A special thank you for the loving care that Al received while in Gillis House. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Merritt and District Hospice Society.
