On the morning of July 25, 2017 Ross Conrad Albers left us to be with our
Lord in Heaven. Ross was born to
Emil Albers and Emma (Schultz)
Albers on June 25, 1925 in Chicago,
Il. Ross was the second of five
children. He is survived by his wife of 70 year Doris Albers, his daughter
Deborah Heidt, son Dale (Bonnie) Albers, brother Lorne (Eva) Albers, granddaughters Victoria Heidt, Sheila Heidt, Doreen (Mike) Hayes, Doris Elveen Albers, great-grandchildren Joey Felt, Darrell Felt, Alyssa Hayes.
Ross was predeceased by his parents, as well as his 3 sisters: Enid
Karlstrom, Joyce Kozub and Joan Pajak. Ross made his living as a farmer, and like many farmers was quite handy. He was more likely to build what he needed than buy it.
Throughout his life, he was a lover of sports, from playing ball in his youth with the Manfred District team, to racing stock cars and weekly golf games in his retirement. Depending on the time of year, you could often find Ross in front of the TV cheering on
the Edmonton Oilers or the Eskimos.
Woodworking was an important part of his retirement. Between his intricately detailed scroll saw work and his crafting of fine furniture, his family and neighbours were blessed with many
unique and beautiful pieces. Ross had an undeniable love for animals. Throughout his life, he had many dogs as faithful and adoring companions. Combined with a deep appreciation and respect for nature, Ross would often ride his John Deere Gator out into the pasture, with his faithful dog by his side, exploring and enjoying the peace and beauty of his home.
