Al­bert Roland Dob­son

The Amherst News - - OBITUARIES/EVENTS -

The fam­ily an­nounce, with bro­ken hearts, the sud­den pass­ing of Al­bert Roland Dob­son, age 68, of Fen­wick.

Born in Amherst, he was the son of the late Ed­ward and Blanche (Pet­ti­grew) Dob­son.

Al­bert was an avid out­doors­man all his life. He was in his favourite spot, the fam­ily hunt­ing camp, with some of his favourite peo­ple, his broth­ers, when he left us. Al­bert loved look­ing af­ter his blue­ber­ries, bees, and spend­ing time on the marsh trap­ping and fish­ing eels. He was al­ways fol­lowed by his loyal com­pan­ion, Bella, un­til her pass­ing. He could build, make or fix any­thing on his own and would help any­body who needed a hand. Al­bert loved to travel with Linda to Cape Bre­ton to look for moose dur­ing their an­nual va­ca­tion. He loved to meet up with his broth­ers and friends twice daily for cof­fee and gos­sip, and maybe a few tall tales at A&W and Arnold’s garage.

Last sum­mer, Al­bert and Linda went on a trip to visit fam­ily in West­ern Canada and to see the coun­try and all the wildlife. Many mem­o­ries were made, even on the short­est day trips, and they got to meet their great grand­son, Sammy. Al­bert was very proud of his kids and grand­chil­dren and would do any­thing for them.

Al­bert will be dearly missed by his wife, Linda (Jol­lota); chil­dren Ed­ward and Jen­nifer (Jeff Gouchie); grand­chil­dren Janelle, Reghan, Makenna, Shannon, Mor­gan and Tyler; great­grand­son Sa­muel; sis­ters, Ruth Aren­burg, Shirley Michels, Peggy MacKenzie, Hazel (Robert) Aren­burg and Joyce Maloney; broth­ers Gor­don (Dorothy), Jack, Kenny (Chris), Ron­nie (Eva) and Arnold (Bev); in-laws Ruth (Herb) Nick­er­son, Shirley (Roger) Howlett, Timmy Jol­lota, Dale (David) Landry, Thelma (Thomas) Haynes, Jimmy (Deb­bie) Jol­lota and Nancy (Steven) Comeau and many nieces, neph­ews and ex­tended fam­ily.

Be­sides his par­ents, Al­bert was pre­de­ceased by sib­lings Arthur (in­fancy), Olive (Don­ald) Arse­neau; Vaughan and Rus­sell; broth­ers in-law Clarence Aren­burg, Bert Michels, Bernie MacKenzie and sis­ter in-law Sue Dob­son; in-laws Ivan (Joyce) Jol­lota and Eric Jol­lota.

Al­bert will be tremen­dously missed by ev­ery­one who knew him.

A cel­e­bra­tion of Al­bert’s life was held on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 28, 2018 from 2 to 4 p.m. in Knights of Colum­bus Hall, Ro­bie Street, Amherst.

In­ter­ment will take place in Fen­wick Ceme­tery at a later date.
