June 3, 1938 – January 11, 2020
My heart aches at the passing of Al Wedman. He slipped away peacefully at home. Al had his own code to live by. He knew what was right and what needed fixing. You could not have had a better friend, or one who spoke more plainly. He did not suffer fools gladly –or any other way.
Al had his share of demons, none us are without our flaws, but he faced them, was accountable, and rose above them. He tried his hand at many careers. You could be sure it was dirty, hard, and gritty and it took a keen intelligence and passion to get the job done. When things got boring he found something more challenging — it helped if there was an air of daring in it as well.
He knew a broad spectrum of people and was inspirational to many. His humour was legendary. There are so many stories, they sound too incredible to be true, but there is always someone with a twinkle in their eye and a subtle nod that lets you know that it is indeed true. Allan had swagger right to the end. He lived fully often saying, “I was fortunate, I got to do everything I ever wanted.” His strength, courage, and wit were with us to the end. Rest well, my love.
A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.Obituary
