Please share a memory of Alexander to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Alexander (Alex) Carl Posty born on March 23,1939 on his family homestead near Shell Lake Saskatchewan, passed away at the age of 84 on August 4, 2023 in the Whitecourt Hospital. It is with a broken heart we announce the passing of my Dad aka “Pa”, my hero my best friend, but knowing that he is reunited with the love of his life again, my mom (Grace) after eight long years apart can bring me some peace and happiness. My dad’s parents moved to Wanham, when he was 4 and that is where he met his lifelong friend and cousin, Dennis Bush. They grew up together, constantly seeing what kind of mischief they could get into, which continued up until that day my dad passed away. When he was 8 his parents gave him his sister Elaine and then his brother Ken when he was 11. At the age of 18 my dad joined the Canadian Navy. He felt that it was his turn to serve his country. Upon leaving the Navy he became a seismic driller. He travelled all over western Canada and the territories. Always taking time out of his busy work schedule to help on the family farm whenever they needed him. In 1980 he met and married my mom in Kelowna, British Columbia. We then moved to Whitecourt in January of 1981. The day we arrived to Whitecourt the biting -30-degree Celsius temperatures mixed with the wind and snow, I had to ask them if they were punishing me for something. Dad continued working in the oil patch for a few years after we moved to Whitecourt, but then decided he wanted to spend more time with his family. He then started to work with McGregor Power and Construction. His determination allowed him to work his way up to become a Journeyman High Voltage Electrician. Alex stayed at McGregor for over 25 years retiring at the age of 65 for the first time, retired again at the age of 66, and at age 67 dad retired for the third and final time. He loved our family camping trips, he loved sitting around the fire with mom, family and friends. He specifically enjoyed sitting around the fire with my brother Joe drinking beer while the two of them solved all the world’s problems! Dad loved to travel with Mom, they would go on 2 adventures a year Alaskan Cruise, Panama Canal Cruise, and several different places in Mexico and Cuba. He loved to tease, was very quick witted, extremely patient, kind, generous, always willing to help anyone and never expecting anything in return. Dad was independent, stubborn, and always thought things over by looking at both sides before giving his opinion. He never judged people, but had a knack of knowing within minutes of speaking with someone whether they were real or fake. He was a down to earth person, who treated my mom like a queen, he loved his family and friends with his whole heart. My dad was the type of man that you would be so lucky to know. He would support you whole heartedly. He was the type of man who was proud of every single accomplishment that we achieved. I am so thankful to have had the time that I did with my parents, I am even more thankful that they are together again after all of this time. Dad, I will miss you more than you ever know. You were the best dad that anyone could have asked for. I have turned into a person that I know you were proud of, as proud as I am of you. I wish I could hug you one last time. I thought I would have more time with you here on Earth, I guess I will have to settle for, until we meet again. Love you forever and always. Terri I would like to thank Aimee and the staff at Whitecourt Homecare, Doctor Roszko and Doctor Danny, for doing everything they could, nurses; Alex, Brittany, Rickie Lee and all of the other nurses and staff that took care of my dad while he was in the Whitecourt Hospital. Special thank you to my brother Joe for driving from Ontario to support me through the loss of my dad, I couldn’t have done it without your help. A family dinner was held at my parents’ favorite restaurant The Green Gables on Sunday August 13, 2023, thank you Philip and family. His ashes will be spread in the Blueberry Patch with Mom at a later date.
