We Remember


April 27, 1933 — March 13, 2024

After 90 years, on Wednesday, March 13, 2024, in Kelowna, BC, our beloved Albert Bruschinsky departed this world. He has gone to join his dear wife Dorothy.

Born in 1933 in Krasna, Bessarabia, he embarked on a journey that would shape the course of his life. In 1953, he decided to leave his homeland behind and make a new beginning in Canada, sponsored by a farmer on the prairies. He then moved to Vancouver, BC where he became a cabinetmaker, though soon after found his calling and transitioned into home building. He became well-liked and respected in the home-building community within Richmond, BC. He was filled with immense joy when his son and son-in-law took over the business, keeping his legacy going.

Albert married Dorothy on September 29, 1962. They lived in Richmond, and had two children, Rick and Doris. In 1999, they decided to relocate to Kelowna, wanting to be closer to their children, Rick (Tara) and Doris (John), and their grandchildren, Talia, Bryden, Riley, Kiana, and Lexy. For Albert and Dorothy, family was the cornerstone of their lives.

Albert is held dear in the hearts of his immediate family, siblings, nieces, nephews, and friends. He was sadly predeceased by his parents Johannes and Agatha Bruschinsky; his wife Dorothy; and brother Emanuel.

Family and friends will honour him, each in their own way. No formal service will be held.
