ALEKSANDRAS (ALEX) JUOZAS NOLIUS (published on March 05, 2011)

ALEKSANDRAS (ALEX) JUOZAS NOLIUS I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. With his family by his side, Alex's suffering ended on Monday, February 28, 2011 when our Lord took him home into His loving arms. Alex was born March 30, 1931 in Degutlauskis, Lithuania, the second youngest of four. He spent his childhood there on the family farm. In 1944 his family was forced to leave their farmland behind. For 10 months the family fled the advancing Russian Army, behind the German troops who had taken 18 year old Albinus with them. He was never heard from again. With their horse and wagon the family finally arrived at the coast and were able to make the dangerous crossing on the frozen sea to Denmark. They lived there for five years, Alex going to school and working on the farm. In 1950 they made Canada their new homeland. Alex worked for Raber Glove, Armco and then he became Winnipeg's #1 milkman for many years until his retirement. Many good memories are shared by his loving wife of 56 years, Renate, his two daughters: Barbara (Lewis) Friesen and their sons Timothy, Daniel and Michael; Deborah (Mark) Piccinin, and their sons Robin and Steven in British Columbia; niece Ruta and nephew Mattias. Alex was predeceased by his brothers Albinus and Victorus, sister Johanna and nephew Ginteras.
