ALBERT WALTER NEULS (published on April 18, 2009)



ALBERT WALTER NEULS 1918 - 2009 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather Albert Neuls on Saturday, April 11, 2009 at Riverview Health Centre at the age of 91 years. Remaining to forever cherish Dad's memory are his loving wife Evelyn; his children, Dale (Diane), Karen Macauley (Bill); his grandchildren, who loved Gramps so very much; Jamie Neuls (Melissa), Jeff Neuls (Michelle), Shaun Macauley (Lee Sawka), Eireann Macauley, Dale Lutz, and great-grandson Bailey Neuls. He is also survived by his extended family Nell Macauley, Betty Lutz and Archer and Chris Jackson. Dad will be also missed by many nieces and nephews in Canada and the United States. Dad was born on April 4, 1918 in Winnipeg, the youngest son of John and Phillipina. At a young age his family moved to Inglis, Manitoba. Dad enjoyed sharing stories of his adventures growing up in Inglis with his four older brothers John, Bill, Charlie and Paul. Dad joined the service and served overseas in the RCAF in the Second World War. Shortly after arriving home he met Mom and they relocated to Windsor, Ontario where they were married on July 6, 1946. Dad worked in the auto industry in Windsor, but after a year Mom and Dad moved back to Manitoba and settled in Winnipeg. Dad started working for Winnipeg Transit and retired after 35 years of service. An avid curler, Dad enjoyed many years at the Civic Caledonian Curling Club and served as president of the club. He was an excellent craftsman and was always working on a project; Dad could fix or build anything. Some of Dad's happiest times were spent in his garden both at home and at the farm in Welwyn Saskatchewan, Mom's childhood home, where he also enjoyed family and friends, BBQing on the old forge and working in the fields. Family was very important to Dad. Mom and Dad were devoted to each other and Dad was always concerned about who would look after his sweetie . He loved us dearly and cherished the time he spent with his family. We will miss and love him forever and feel blessed to have had him as our father. Dad will be remembered as a hard working, independent, determined, and proud man. These qualities will live on in his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A celebration of his life will take place this summer in Welwyn, with interment in the family plot in Welwyn Cemetery. Our family would like to thank the caring staff on 3W at Riverview Health Centre. Dad loved animals, especially dogs, so in lieu of flowers a donation may be made, in his memory, to the Winnipeg Humane Society, 45 Hurst Way, Winnipeg, MB R3T 0R3.
