Albert had strong faith in God and an attitude of grace toward others. Wise, humble, and generous, with a calm presence, he often found himself in leadership roles, including trustee on the school board for 20 years, rural municipality councillor, and various roles at Glenbush (Sask.) MB Church. Farming gave Albert joy as he worked with his brothers, then trained his sons to make the family farm prosperous. With wisdom and foresight, he was not afraid to try new things. Whether building houses, finding efficiencies on the farm, or creating something new, Albert sought ways to improve life for his family. He was always willing to lend a hand with carpentry; until his last months, he enjoyed building onto his home with his sons. Albert loved camping, boating, driving quad, and playing acoustic and bass guitar. Never too busy for his family, he did all he could to provide for them and help them succeed. He had a deep bond with his grandchildren and took great interest in their activities. Generous with his time and resources, he did whatever he could to help others in need. Through his consistent example, Albert taught his family and others how to love.
