Obituary for Allan David Rutherford

Print
After a lengthy illness with Parkinson’s, Al passed away on January 2nd, 2019 at Concordia Hospital in his 90th year.

Born in Winnipeg to Dave and Myrtle Rutherford, Al was the youngest of eight. His siblings all have predeceased him.

He leaves to mourn his wife of 66 years, Wanda, his daughter Kathryn (Paul), his son Blair (Laura), grandchildren, Jessica (Justin), Chad (Renée), Clara, and Ry, two adorable great-grandchildren, Landry and Declan, nephews and nieces, other relatives and many friends and former colleagues.

He had many accomplishments over his life time. His life work was customs brokerage which he began as a teenager, eventually setting up his own business, A.D. Rutherford & Co. Later with his wife, he owned the BDI for 40 years.

His life passions included: flying (which he started at 16 with gliders until he owned his Cessna amphibian plane); sailing (starting at the Canoe Club at the age of 15 and eventually ended with his C&C 35’ at Clearwater Bay, Lake of the Woods); square dancing (both calling and teaching); Rotary and the Shriners (where he was a member of the motor patrol). He kept close friendships from all aspects of his life, including from Gordon Bell where he went to high school in the 1940s. Al and Wanda loved hosting family and friends for dinners and parties. Al was active with so many others in innumerable ways. He will be sorely missed by many.

In lieu of flowers, contributions to his memory can be sent to Parkinson Canada (https://www.parkinson.ca/getinvolved/waystogive/ ). His family would like to deeply thank all the staff at N1 North and the palliative care team, Concordia Hospital, for all their kind attention to Al during these last weeks, and Winnipeg Home Care, particularly Irwin, for all their care over the last few years.

A celebration of Al’s life will take place in the summer, which will be advertised.
