1959 ~ 2016

Albert Vincent (Alvin) Siegers of Medicine Hat passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 3, 2016, at the age of 57 years, after a long battle with MS. Alvin leaves to cherish his memory one brother, Adrian (Darnelda) of Sechelt, B.C., two sisters, Alice (George) Theofan of Medicine Hat, Corinne (Tyler) Johnson of Newmarket, ON. and sister-in-law, Brenda Siegers of Medicine Hat as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind one aunt, Ansje van Cuyk and one uncle, Sietse Siegers, both of the Netherlands. Alvin was predeceased by his parents, Egbert and Adriana “Jeanne” Siegers, one brother, Bert and one niece, Janine. Alvin was born in Medicine Hat but also lived in Brooks, Lethbridge and Regina, returning to Medicine Hat where he lived for the past 9 years. Alvin had a flare for humour, a brilliant mind and a passion for music with the ability to play any instrument he put his mind to. His quick wit and banter with his family and friends will be fondly remembered. As his health declined, he kept in contact with the world through the internet and embraced technology to keep his mind active. In honouring Alvin’s request, no formal funeral service will be held. Family extend their heartfelt appreciation to the care givers, his extended family at Haven View Nursing Home. Your exceptional patience and compassion with Alvin was obvious during the years he was privileged to reside with you. You were a comfort to us all during his last days.

    Growing up as a teenager living on Belfast Street, Alvin was our next door neighbor and truly a great friend. Remembering the times at Elkwater, horse back riding, rounding up cattle and camping. Alvin spent a lot of time teaching me how to play guitar and just hanging out together. Looking back at times, always brings up happy memories. Alvin, you were truly a great friend, you will be missed God Bless.
