Albert was born ‘Jules Albert Delaurier’ on November 2, 1935 in Laurier, Manitoba. He was the 2nd oldest of 16 children born to Antoine and Juliette. Albert was raised on the farm at Laurier and took his oldest brother role seriously which earned him the nick name Dr. Law. As a young man, Albert worked the family farm, was a truck driver, CAT operator and lumberjack before becoming a boiler maker, which he did until his retirement.  Albert and Sally married in 1962 and they travelled from job site to job site in a house trailer before settling in Moose Jaw in 1963.  Sally and Albert enjoyed many years entertaining in their home, camping, garage sailing, dancing, landscaping, renovating rental homes, traveling to exotic places and enjoying winters in Puerto Vallarta. Many memories were made right at home enjoying a great meal, a bottle of homemade wine and a card game. Albert worked as a Boiler Maker at Kalium Potash Plant in Belle Plaine, SK for 35 years prior to his retirement. One of his proudest moments was working alongside his 3 sons; Ron and Dan as carpenters and Robert as a fellow boiler maker. Albert was very proud of each of his boys. Albert volunteered with Seniors Bingo, Meals on Wheels and activities with The Knights of Columbus as well as ushering at St. Joseph’s Church for many years. A few years after Sally’s passing Albert met Lucie Pouteaux. They spent the next few years traveling and enjoying retirement. Lucie was a constant companion and cared for Albert throughout his battle with dementia. Many thanks to Lucie for the loving care she provided to Albert. Albert was loved and will be missed by special friends /family Cortney & Ivana who attend Diversified Services. Memorials to Moose Jaw Diversified Services for the Handicapped, 11 Wood Lily DR.
