We Remember

HAIT, Adolph “Al”

June 17, 1928 — December 13, 2023

It is with sadness and love that we share the passing of Al Hait, he departed peacefully and is now in the presence of his Lord.  Al leaves to mourn his loving wife of 67 years, Janet; his three sons, Dave (Janice), Greg (Patti), and Jim (Melanie); his grandchildren, Amanda, Brendan (Kaitlyn), Ryan, Darren, and Kaylan. He also leaves behind his siblings, Betty, Ron, Freida, Joyce, and Leona. He was predeceased by his grandson, Jordan (d. 1994), and siblings, Dorthy, Don, and Erna.

Born to Otto and Hattie Hait, on the farm near Ebenezer, Saskatchewan, Al was the oldest of nine children. In 1947, his family moved to Kelowna, BC, where he worked various jobs: on tug boats for Simpson’s Sawmill, Logging & Cement truck driver, and as a Heavy Duty Mechanic.

Al later met and married Janet Rode in Kelowna on July 6, 1956.  In 1960, Al built their house on an acreage which they settled on in 1961 and farmed hay crops. In addition to farming, Al worked as a General Contractor (Al Hait Contracting) built many houses and as a Finishing Carpenter for Three Buoys Houseboats and Campion Boats. In 1972, he built a larger house on the property for the family. After retirement in 2017, they subdivided the house from the property, where he lived out his remaining years with his wife.
