STODDARD, Albert Gordon
In his 67th year, peacefully entered into rest at Glacier View Lodge in Comox, BC on June 14, 2013, surrounded by love. Al was predeceased by his parents Hartley McCulloch, and James and Monica Stoddard. He is survived by his loving wife Lynn, his children Shawna(Dale), Brady(Hilary), and Ben; his beloved grandchildren Mia and Ty, his siblings Mary(Bill), Bonnie, Sherry(Bill), John, Jim, and several neices and nephews.
Al was born in Vancouver, BC on November 27, 1946. He served our country for 30 years in the Air Force in the Physical Education and Recreation trade. One of his titles was Athletic Director at Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario in the late 80’s.
Al loved sports, everything about sports. From coaching to participating, volunteering or just spectating, he loved sports. He taught us all so many life lessons, and he handled his two illnesses with such grace and dignity. A proud, strong and courageous man, we take solace in knowing he is in a better place, pain free. The entire family would like to extend their sincere thanks to the staff at Glacier View Lodge for their amazing care and compassion. The family will have a private Celebration of Life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
