1943 ~ HERMANSON ~ 2013Posted: May 24th, 2013
It is with deep and heavy hearts we announce the passing of Albert Ole Hermanson who lost his brief but courageous battle with cancer on May 22nd, 2013 at the age of 70. Albert leaves a big hole in the hearts of his loving wife, Louise of 36 years, and his children, Alice and Brian Lee (Tyler, Trevin, Travis), Deanna Rivard Hermanson (Olivia, Beaudrie, Kennedy), Derek and Tammy Foster (Alaiya, Blair, Carter, Brooklyn), Brad and Kelly Hermanson (Kadence, Katelynn). Albert was predeceased by his parents, Ole and Margaret Hermanson; in-laws, August and Viola Molitor; and siblings, Paul, Jimmy, William, Freddie, and Benny. He is survived by Henry and Sharon, Carl, Margaret, Lilian, Anne, Evelyn and Dwayne, Kay and Vic Christman, Marvin and Deanna Molitor, Wayne and Gwen Molitor, Bill and Linda Koehler, Marlene Edel and their families. Albert was born on March 3rd, 1943 spending his younger years and early adulthood in Carbon, Alberta until moving to Medicine Hat in 1974 and working for McMillian Transport until 1976. He then moved on to Joyline Transport (Flint) from 1976 to 2010 as a heavy duty mechanic. Albert then passed time working as security at the drag strip or working the bar at the Medicine Hat Exhibition and Stampede. He was a family man and his family always came first with his wife, kids and grandkids who always brought a sparkle to his eyes. Albert never missed a family function and was not afraid to twist his hips on the dance floor. He was known to many and loved by all never being able to walk into a room without someone knowing him. Albert loved to work in his garage tinkering and making sure his tools were all cleaned and put back where they belonged. Everyone knew that if something was wrong with their vehicle they could bring it to Albert and he could fix it. He took great pride helping his grandsons work on their vehicles fixing what needed to be fixed or teaching them to do it themselves. Albert will be missed by everyone who had the honor to know him, and special friends, Dennis and Darlene McKay, Louie Dick, Harvey and Cathy Martin, and Bob and Sandy Belanger. The Funeral Service will be held in SAAMIS MEMORIAL FUNERAL CHAPEL, #1 Dunmore Road SE, on Tuesday, May 28th, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. with Reverend Jim Hillson officiating.
