  • Brian Cooper says:

    I had the good fortune to serve with Alfred at McDermot Church. He was a quiet, patient man – always capable and available, always calm. He did his work with a quiet dignity that showed me that he didn’t seek personal recognition, but rather the satisfaction of faithfully carrying out his role. He was a stabilizing presence in a sometimes turbulent place, and I have fond memories of his godly character.

    I was very saddened to hear of Alfred’s passing. We had a special bond for 7 years as secretary & custodian at McDermot Ave Baptist Church. I always looked forward to our morning coffee/tea time where we sat & chatted about life and many things.. He had a quiet sense of humor,was diligent and hard working and always had that shy smile on his face. It was great to be able to see him whenever I visited my parents in Kelowna! My prayers are with you, Myra and family. May our loving Heavenly Father bring you strength and comfort at this time!
