On May 5th, 2023, the sun set on the extraordinary life of Al Amos, a beloved papa, father, husband, brother, and friend. At the age of 71, Al left behind a legacy that will forever be remembered and cherished by his family, friends, and anyone who had the privilege of knowing him.
Born on March 5th, 1952, in Oxbow, Saskatchewan to Gordon and Olive Amos. Al’s love for the land, nature, and the simple pleasures of life was instilled in him from a young age. He spent his days roaming the vast expanses of the countryside, cultivating his love for hunting and riding horses.
As he grew older, Al became a master storyteller. With the crackling warmth of a campfire, he would gather his friends and family around to share tales of adventure, love, and laughter. His stories were like the embers of the fire – igniting the imagination and warming the hearts of all who listened. These memories will continue to be passed down through generations, keeping Al’s spirit alive.
Al’s devotion to his family was unparalleled. He was a loving husband to his wife, Maggie, for over 30 years. The love and laughter that filled their home was a testament to the strong bond they shared.
His passion for hunting took him on many adventures, from tracking deer in the dense forests, pursuing Moose in the bush and endless hours of fishing. Al’s respect and admiration for the natural world was a lesson he imparted to all who accompanied him on these expeditions.
