Warren James Albiston of Kamloops, BC passed away on December 29, 2016 at the age of 81 years. Predeceased by one brother and 3 sisters, Warren is survived by his devoted and loving wife of 53 years, Norah; daughters Karen, Cathy (Neil) Farber, Norma (Bryan) Koll; grandchildren Clayton, Tanner, Bailey and Jesse, all of Kamloops; and brother Stan (Marilyn) of Kaysville, Utah.
Warren was born on December 11, 1935 in Kamloops. He grew up in Walhachin, the youngest of the five children of John and Gladys. He married Norah in 1963 and they raised their family on Dominion Street, next to good neighbours the MacKinders and the Gasparins, while Warren worked at the BC Land Titles office. He retired from there in 1995 after 36 years of service.
Dad loved to fish and enjoyed tying flies and keeping detailed journals of his day on the lakes with his good fishing friend, Bob New. He also enjoyed hockey and spent many years following, travelling with and watching the Blazers.
We would like to thank the wonderful staff of Ponderosa Lodge that cared for Dad. Private family arrangements have been made. In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer donations be made to the Alzheimers’ Society of BC. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com.
Lord grant that I may live to fish
Upon my dying day,
And when I’ve made my final cast
Most humbly do I pray.
That when in God’s safe landing net
I’m peacefully asleep
That in his mercy I’ll be found
Good enough to keep.Print This Obituary & Condolences
