September 5, 1959 – October 25, 2015
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our dear Dad, Brother, Uncle, and Friend, Alfred Zugelder. Alfred, also known by many as “Al”, passed away peacefully on Sunday October 25th, 2015. Alfred was born September 5, 1959 in Goodsoil, SK and raised in Edson, AB. Alfred resided in Maple Ridge to be near his two children, ex-wife and close friend, Bonnie Morrill (Zirk). Diagnosed in late September, Alfred had a brief battle with liver cancer, all while spending quality time with his family and friends. Alfred is survived by his loving Mom Ethel, Father Otto, and 3 siblings, Richard (Cindy) Zugelder, Rose (Dan) Mellersh, Tammy Zugelder and his many nieces and nephews. Alfred was a proud Father to Brianne (Paul) & Justin (Kat) Zugelder and adored the time he shared with them. Everyone always loved to soak up Alfred’s kind nature and sense of humor. He was fast to make friends wherever he went and his connections with people were very important to him. Alfred spent years in the construction business, running his own vinyl siding company. Since retired, he loved to spend his time outdoors near the Fraser River dreaming about fishing. The celebration of Alfred’s life will be held at Garden Hill Funeral Home (11764-224th St., Maple Ridge, BC V2X 6A5) on Monday Nov. 2nd, 2015 at 1:00pm with a tea to follow.
