Theodor (Ted) Albert
Ted died suddenly and unexpectedly on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at his home in Cumberland at the age of 85. Ted died as he would have wanted, after a day of working in his garden with his beloved dog, Mona Lisa, by his side.
Ted had a heart of gold. He enjoyed sharing the fruits of his labour; strawberries, raspberries, cherries, rhubarb, beans, potatoes, and flowers – roses and dahlias with his friends and neighbours. Nothing gave him greater joy than touring someone around his garden.
Ted was born in Germany and immigrated to Canada in 1952. Ted is survived by his brothers and their families in Germany and his daughter, Jennifer. He will be fondly remembered by his many friends and neighbours.
A celebration of Ted’s life will be held in his garden on Saturday, June 18, 2016 at 2pm. For details, please call Karen
