Albert Rose went to heaven on June 24, 2019 at the age of 81. He leaves behind an adoring family, including his sisters Jessie (Tom), Ruth (Delbert), Lillian (Hedley), and Mae (Tom) and his brothers Jim (Janice) and Dave (June), his children Ron (Flo) and Judy (Rick), his grandchildren Jeff, Kara, Mark, Mallory, and Meagan, and his great grandson Bright. Waiting for him in heaven are his parents Lillian and James, his brother Ed (Helen), and his sister Mildred (Bill). Albert Rose was a good man. He knew that family was the most important thing in life and hockey was a close second. He loved and admired his parents. He adored his eight brothers and sisters and their children. He was unconditionally devoted to his two children and enormously proud of his grandchildren. He taught those around him the things you might expect from a man of his generation respect, hard work, and the importance of doing the right thing. But he was ahead of his time in his compassion, understanding, and generosity. He was both tough and tender, outspoken and kind. He worked hard and loved deeply his whole life. What more is there to do? Rest now, Ab. We will go on loving you. Visitation will take place at Corbett Funeral Home, 95 Dundas Street in Cambridge on Thursday, June 27th from 6-8pm and Friday, June 28th from 1-2pm. A service will take place on Friday at 2pm, followed by interment at Mount View Cemetery, and a reception to follow.
