The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to our Al & Papa.
After years of landscaping, he continued to enjoy puttering in the garden and the company of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Al and Mary ventured on many road trips together and enjoyed their trips to Palm Springs, Reno & Vegas, as well as their “Cross-Canada Trip” to P.E.I. In 2004, and then their “Across the USA Trip” in 2014.
Their most recent road trip was to Prince George last year to visit his sister, Marieanne.
Al was a talented, and respected “Professional Landscaper”, earning his Architectural Drafting & Landscaping Certificates/Diplomas at BCIT.
Al owned his own landscaping business, “Alfred Schneider Landscaping”, for over 60 years.
He specialized in Commercial and Residential Landscaping, and held memberships at various landscaping associations, including The Vancouver Parks Board.
Al’s forever love and devotion was for his wife Mary, however his passion for gardening was a close second. His legacy will forever live on in the hearts and minds of those who loved him.
The beauty of Al’s gardens will continue to be enjoyed by our families and future generations to come.
There will be no public service held.
