We Remember

NAUMANN, Edward Alvin

May 25, 1950 — April 30, 2022

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Alvin Naumann on April 30, 2022, in Kelowna, BC. Alvin is survived by his wife Janet Naumann, married for 49 years; children Cheryl Aamot (Duncan), Vickie Naumann (Arden), Janis Fritz (Jason), Adam Naumann (Julie), and Angela Naumann (Daniel); as well as many grandkids and great-grandkids.

Born in London, England on May 25, 1950, Alvin was an immigrant to Crooked River, SK as a 12-year-old, where he later met Janet. In 1985, he moved his family of 5 to Kelowna, BC and raised his family. His time in the Okanagan was spent with family, friends, travelling, teaching, camping, and playing with his model trains.

There will be an outdoor gathering of family and friends on Saturday, May 7, 2022, at 898 Moyer Rd. from 12:00 – 2:00 PM (Alvin approved).

In lieu of flowers, those wishing to honour his memory may donate to the  Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon; Kidney Foundation of Canada; or the BC Children’s Hospital.

    We are feeling so much love and sadness for your family. Janet, the times we met for a visit were so special and too few but we treasure them. I remember when Alvin and Raymond started school in Crooked River. They were so cool because they talked differently lol. So many memories of our high school years… such a blessing that you found each other Janet. Love to you all ❤️
