Al Keller, aged 87, peacefully passed away at the Peter Lougheed Hospital in Calgary, Alberta. Al was born to Louis and Emma Keller in Duff, Saskatchewan, and spent his childhood on the family farm. In his youth, Al relocated to Edmonton, Alberta, and embarked on various career paths. At the age of twenty, he entered into matrimony in the autumn of 1956. In 1972, Al and his family resettled in Calgary, where he successfully operated a drywall business. Later, in 1978, they moved to Crossfield, residing there for over twenty-five years. Al served the community as a Counsellor for the town of Crossfield. In the mid-1980s, Al transitioned from drywall to managing service stations in Calgary, Olds, and Crossfield, Alberta. Throughout these years, he found joy in spending time with his family, engaging in activities such as golfing, boating, and skiing. Al had a fondness for winter trips to Arizona and summer vacations in the Shuswap. Surviving Al are his children Mark (Aina), Sherry (Dale), and Trent (Lori), along with his grandchildren Brent (Malvina) Keeler, Zachary (Chelsea) Keller, and Alisanne Keller. He is also remembered by his brother, Karl Keller. Al was predeceased by his parents, his sisters Eunice (Ernie) Geisler and Jean (Mike) Zima, as well as his sister-in-law Judy. In his later years, Al resided in Sicamous, BC, by the banks of the Eagle River, in what he lovingly referred to as his personal “Paradise.” There, he cherished time spent with family, friends, and neighbors. The family would like to express gratitude to the friends and staff at Rocky View Lodge in Crossfield for ensuring Al felt at home during his time there. Additionally, they extend their appreciation to the staff at Peter Lougheed and Didsbury Hospital for providing comfort during his final days. As per Al’s wishes, a celebration of his life is scheduled to take place at his property in Sicamous on May 18, 2024.
