Albert was predeceased by his father Kenneth Redding and  his grandparents Rev. Albert Redding, Harold & Edalene Lloyd and Beatrice & Wilfred  Pat Smith.  When he was not driving trucks, nature was his outdoor playground.  Albert was an avid fisherman and hunter (Limerick camp 24).  In 1986, he moved to Ottawa to explore what living with a teacher would be like. They married in 1987.  Albert persevered through many medical challenges in his 60 years. He always did it with strength & remarkable courage.  A heartfelt thanks to the Ottawa Heart Institute for their world class care.  During their 30 wonderful years together, Albert & Monique had 3 furry  children (by choice).  After 7 years of patience, Opie & Whitney are  finally reunited with Daddy.  In the meantime, Daisy will have to be  content with virtual belly rubs until they meet again.  Family and friends of Albert are invited to come and share in a Celebration of life, November 7, 2015, from 1-3 pm at the Madoc Performing Arts Centre on the corner of Durham St. and Richardson in the community of Madoc. The Arts centre is just behind the skate park.
