It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Albert Bath on December 29, 2013 at the age of 94.
Bert was born May 31, 1919 in Trail, BC, the oldest son of Albert John and Anna Louise Bath.
Although Bert was a long time employee at Cominco with 43 years of service, he spent his younger days working at his father’s mill in the Pend Oreille Valley. During World War II Bert served his country overseas in France. Bert enjoyed all that the Kootenays had to offer with hunting, camping, fishing and getting firewood which was always a family outing. One of Bert’s favorite pass times was time spent with his only grandchild Jesse.
Bert was predeceased by his sister Louise Jones and brothers Fred and John Bath.
Bert is survived by his wife Dora, his daughters Bev (Jack) and Nancy (Dennis), his grandson Jesse, his sisters Hilda McInnis, Gladys Parslow, his brothers Art Bath and Harold (Fermina) Bath and many nieces and nephews.
Bert requested that there will be no service however there will be a celebration of life on his birthday May 31, 2014 at the Bath/Stephenson residence.
As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #11 at 2141 Columbia Avenue, Trail, BC, V1R 1K8.
