HEALY, Aldwin MikePosted: May 20th, 2022
The family of ALDWIN MIKE HEALY is deeply saddened to announce that our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, son, brother, uncle, and friend, passed away on Friday, May 13, 2022 at the age of 64 years.
Aldwin was called home to his sons, Cory Scout and Aldwin Jr. Healy; father Johnny Healy; maternal grandparents Mary and Fred Stabsdown; paternal grandparents Kate and Mike Healy; brothers Rudy John Healy and Jimmy John Healy; nephew Jonas Murray Robin Healy, and all his relatives who have gone home to Creator before him.
Aldwin was born September 4, 1957 at the Blood Indian Hospital to his parents, Isabel Healy (Pi’kssipitaakii) and the late Johnny Healy. Aldwin was blessed with three sons: Kendall, Cory and Aldwin Jr.
Aldwin loved being a grandfather to all his grandchildren and was so happy to become a great-grandfather. Aldwin loved his wife and soulmate Marie, sharing many years of love, special memories and friendship together. Aldwin was deeply connected to where he was raised and lived in Old Agency and the Belly Buttes.
Aldwin received his education in Fort Macleod and attended the Vocational School in Claresholm. Aldwin experienced job employment at a very young age and had a curiosity and love of learning and working.
Aldwin was employed with Lethbridge Basement for over 30 years as a skilled and talented contractor. Aldwin was well-respected and recognized for his strong work ethic as he took great pride in his work and maintained his integrity and dignity throughout his life.
Aldwin embraced his strong faith with his Christianity and often reminisced about his grandmother Mary Stabsdown, who nurtured his spirituality and cultural beliefs.
From the day Aldwin could walk, he loved horseback riding and was a natural cowboy who had a special gift connecting with horses. Aldwin valued everything his father Johnny Healy taught him how to work with horses and cattle – as a true horseman, he was born to ride!
Aldwin always made his family and friends feel welcome in his home and shared his love, kindness, compassion and generosity with all the people he met throughout his pathways in life. Aldwin loved sharing his stories and witty humour bringing joy and laughter especially in the Blackfoot language.
Aldwin had a deep love for spending time outdoors hunting, fishing, ice fishing and travelling. One of his many fond adventures was travelling to Mexico with his working crew from Lethbridge Basement where he helped the crew reel in a huge marlin!
Aldwin had a great passion for training horses, horse racing and the Calgary Flames, who he especially enjoyed going to watch at the Saddledome.
Aldwin is survived by his mother Isabel Healy; wife Marie Red Crow; son Kendall Red Crow; grandchildren Kendra Weasel Head, Tailyn Weasel Head, Kadence Red Crow, Cashton Red Crow, Isiah Day Chief, John Day Chief, Denzel Noel Rain Blood, Jozee Wells and Jada Wells; great- grandson Timothy Jr. Glenfield; siblings Mary Fox (Gordon Alex), Marlene Healy (Lonnie), Casey Healy (Charlotte), Debra Healy and Mark Healy (Iris); nieces and nephews Patricia Soop/Healy, Marlin Bottle/Healy, Terrance Bottle/Healy, Lenny Fox, Shaneen Fox (Neal), Andrea True Joy Fox (Javier), Hilary Healy, Martie Gros Ventreboy (Wylie), Michael Healy, Lacey Healy, Chelsea Healy, Chynell Shade and Haley Shade; and many great nieces and nephews, as well as many friends. We apologize if we have missed any names of family and friends.
