Alfred Chilton, 75, passed away Thursday, November 16 at his home in Nakusp.
Alfred lived the majority of his life in the Beaton, BC area logging, trapping and caring for family. He was a loving son, an amazing brother, and a reliable friend.
Always hard working, little changed when he retired to Nakusp in the late 1990’s where he volunteered long hours at the golf course and his sister, Mattie’s, restaurant. He golfed, gambled, and collected cans and bottles with unequalled passion.
More importantly, he was surrounded by many wonderful friends. Alfie’s surviving sisters, Mattie and Eilene, and his brother, Henry, would like to thank them for this gift. We will all miss this gentle, thoughtful man.
While there will not be a service by his request, poker and golf gathering are being planned in Alfred’s memory. Family and Alfie would appreciate donations to the Royal Canadian Legion and the Nakusp Golf Club in lieu of flowers.
Travel safely brother.
