In Memory of Albert Zwicker
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Albert Zwicker on March 26 at the age of 84. He slipped away peacefully surrounded by the love of his family. He lived a full life and enjoyed every moment. He was a man of many interests which included scouting, birdwatching, camping, canoeing, fishing and especially spending time with his family. His happy whistle will be remembered by many kids. He especially enjoyed being Santa and did so for decades bringing joy to countless children. He will be sorely missed and lovingly remembered by Carole, his wife of 52 years, his son Christopher (Tina Godbout), his daughter Natalie (Roderick McLeod) and his five cherished grandchildren (Emma, Alec, Ryan, Ethan and Lexi). He was so proud of his family. He is survived by his sister Ruby Bradford and many nieces and nephews. At Albert’s request there will be no funeral service. Please do a good deed for someone as Al himself so often did. Grateful thank you to the nurses and doctors of the palliative care group in Orleans.
Albert’s mother had said that when he was younger and she was waiting for him to come home later at night, that once she heard him ‘whistling’, she could relax and fall asleep 💙
Natalie, I loved your dad. He was an amazing Uncle to Vernie and I when we were so very young and of course I have many great memories of him throughout the years. Love and hugs to you all 💛💔💚
My deepest sympathies to Carol, Chris and daughter😢. He was a very nice man🥰
Carole and family, I am so sorry to hear of Alberts passing. I have known him my whole life and so enjoyed seeing him when in St. Andrews. He was an usher at my wedding. I know all your great memories will help you all in the days ahead. Sincerely Elda Bailey (McKay) 💕
So long AL, I will miss canoeing on the Big Rideau Lake with you when we fished, camped and shared meals together. Thanks for the memories.
My deepest sympathies to the family, Al was a good man and a good friend. Fond memories of our time spent together over the last 50 years.
I’ll miss my great Uncle Bugs
Condolences to Carole, Chris and Natalie
And all of us who will miss him
Some times words cannot convey how you feel about the emptiness created by the loss of someone so dear to you.
Uncle Albert was an integral part in my youthful development where the love, encouragement and support helped create the person I am today. I am a loving, honest, respectful, joyful and direct person. I thank him for that.
As he looks down upon us, he will be pleased that his contribution made his family what they are today. He was a good friend to all and his smile was contagious.
My condolences to his wife – Carole; his children – Christopher and Natalie and their children. God Rest your Soul Unk.
I know Al through my wife Leverne. Al is her uncle.
He was a gentleman and kind.
Sincere sympathies to Carole and his children

I love you Uncle Al, my condolences to Carole,Christopher, Natalie and all the grandchildren. I will miss our phone calls and your wonderful laugh. My mother loved you very much and loved to listen to you both recall childhood memories
Sincères condoléances à toi et ta famille. Je l ai connu comme un homme joyeux en tout temps. Qu il repose en paix.
Carole et la famille
Recevez nos plus sincères condoléances et toute amitié dans ce moment difficile.
Carole and family – I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Please accept my deepest condolences. His Obituary left me feeling that you and your family will have a major void in your lives.
My hubby and I saw you two at a restaurant a few years ago and we exchanged phone numbers and we never did get in touch. I walk our dog over in your area and always think I must call her and go for a walk or a coffee. I will call you soon as will be thinking of you during this difficult time. May many special memories bring you peace and comfort in the coming days.
Although I haven’t seen Al often, his infectious smile and gentle soul was so much so that I felt we’ve known each other for years. I called him Carole’s Teddy Bear. A warm, active family man will no doubt leave a huge emptiness for all. Heartfelt condolences to Carole and their children.
