It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Al Bodnar on December 22, 2019 at the age of 73 years, after he courageously fought a long battle with Alzheimers.

He was predeceased by his father Andy and mother Audrey.

Cremation has taken place.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the wonderful staff at Good Samaritan Southgate who cared so much for Allan during his time there. Special thanks to Bev Buchholz who was an angel during his care.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Allan’s honour may be made directly to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada, Good Samaritan, or a charity of your choice.

Tribute wall - a place to share your memories and condolences

Sandy Bossio

Its a bright and sunny winter morning when you popped into my head, Peggy. I heard that Al was unwell a while ago and googled his name. I was saddened to read that you had lost him. I remember him as handsome, dapper and witty. One staff Christmas celebration at the Highlands Country Club, we were gathered around a very long table where he sat at one end, cupped his hands around his mouth, and yelled to the other end,
“Pass the salt, Dick!” What a card….

I remember that as a manager you created a stellar nursing environment, made an impression on, and were respected by all.
Making an imprint on me as a young nurse, I think of you often throughout my career. I ponder on how Peggy would manage this unit, what Peggy would say or do!
I hope that our paths may cross as we have many memories to share.

I recall reading a book on death and dying on Stn 18;
the last page read:
“If I had strength to hold a pen, I would write how easy and pleasant a thing it is to die.”

Our condolences on the loss of your husband.
Sandy and Louie Bossio
