TARRAS, Alfred William

January 9 1940- October 21 2011

Al Tarras passed away peacefully surrounded by his loved ones October 21st 2011. He is survived by his beautiful wife, Judy Tarras, three children, Rick Tarras, Doug Tarras, and Christina Brandenfels (John). And also his grandchildren, Jared, Connor (Tarras), Soleil, Belle, and Jack (Brandenfels).

Al was born in Aberdeen, Scotland and immigrated to Canada in 1946. Al had a successful career with the Royal Bank for 37 years. He was a friend, mentor, and support to many throughout his career and life. He moved to the Valley in 1979 and decided this was where he wanted to raise his family and retire. Al enjoyed being involved in the community and was a Rotarian for many years. He also found joy in travelling with his wife, and being in the great outdoors. He was a dedicated Artist and had a profound interest in Native American Culture. Al always felt that his biggest accomplishment was his family. His love and devotion to his wife, kids and grandchildren was above and beyond all else.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Comox Valley Hospice or charity of your choice. Those wishing to remember Al are invited to join his family at Crown Isle Copper Room on Saturday, November 5th from 2pm-5pm.

We honor the place in you, which is of love, of light, of truth and of peace.

When you are in that place in you

We are ONE.
