Albert James Malnarich

MALNARICH, Albert James, January 6, 1918 – November 18, 2012

Albert passed away peacefully at Brook Haven Home Care in West Kelowna.

Born in Minneapolis Minnesota, he grew up in the West Kootenays, mainly Trail and Rossland, where he worked at Cominco( Teck).

Albert was predeceased by his wife Aili, his daughters Bonnie (Syberg), Sylvia (Colibaba). He is survived by his son Jack, and grandchildren Jolene and Jarrett Malnarich, and Jason and Neil Syberg.

Albert was a true outdoorsman, enjoying fishing, hunting, skiing (it was so pretty to watch him in the powder, the deeper the better), and he loved his garden at Deer Park where he spent his summers.

A thanks to the staff at Brook Haven in West Kelowna for looking after Albert for the last eight years, they are a special group.

In lieu of flowers donations to your local SPCA would be appreciated as Albert loved dogs and always had one by his side.

A celebration of Albert’s life will take place in the spring.
