Al’s talent for business led him into property management in Vancouver. He worked for Macaulay Nicholls Maitland, Block Bros. Realty, Montreal Trust and his own company, Ens Real Estate. An auxiliary member of the Vancouver Police Force, Al retired in 1991 as inspector of the Vancouver Police Reserve. Al was a caring provider for his family and a generous, faithful friend. He was active in his church and the MB conference, overseeing financial and business affairs for the denomination in B.C. In retirement, Al and Erna moved back to Vancouver and enjoyed their grandchildren, travelling with friends and frequent stays in Phoenix, Ariz. After Erna died, Al moved to a retirement home, then to Sunrise Senior Living in 2010, where he was well cared for as his Alzheimer’s disease progressed.
