ALBERT (ROY) COLDWELL (published on August 06, 2009)

ALBERT (ROY) COLDWELL Peacefully on Tuesday, August 4, 2009, at 5:00 a.m., Roy passed away after a brief stay at the Riverview Health Centre. Roy was predeceased by his parents, Perry and Mary; brothers, Bill and Don; sisters, Edith and Beth; and granddaughter Colleen. Remaining to forever cherish Roy's memory are his wife of 62 1/2 years, Isobelle; daughter Lynn; sons LeRoy and Robert (Sandy); sister Judy (Bob); sisters-in-law Ruth and Joyce; brother-in-law George; as well as five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Roy was born on August 6, 1922. He lived and was educated in the Elmwood area. Roy joined the No. 1 Motor Ambulance Convoy in 1939 and was there until 1946. He worked for C.N.R. from 1948 to 1952. He then went transport trucking across Canada and the United States, where he was very proud of never having been in an accident. In 1964 Roy started working for Arnie's Welding, where he remained until his retirement. Roy was a Ham Operator for many years. He was a 'go-between' during the Falcon Island War. He communicated with Spaceship Columbia, and was known as 'Santa Claus' for many years. He had communicated with 350 countries, the last one being a small island of Rodriguis. Roy loved his sports. Curling, bowling, golfing, he was good at it all. He was a true friend to everyone and was loved by all. He will be deeply missed. The family would like to express their appreciation to the staff of both Home Care and the Riverview Health Centre for the warmth and compassionate care they provided for Roy during his illness. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Roy's memory to the Liver Foundation. At Roy's wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no service. A family gathering will be held at a later date.
