Alan Lee Hodgson passed away suddenly at his home in Kamloops, B.C. on August 25, 2014 at the age of 60 years. Al was born in Peace River, Albert. He was predeceased by his father, Lee, and is survived by his mother, Ann, his three siblings, Sheryl Gill (Don), Brian (Wendy), and Pam Lovett (Clive), his beloved pets Yota and Mr. Kitten, as well as his children and best friends, Joey and Katie Hodgson. Al’s life was filled with adventure, fun, and kindness. He was an inspiration to all around him to live life to the fullest, and to never be too serious. In honour of “Big Al”, the Hodgson family invites Al’s friends to join them in a celebration at Chapters Viewpoint Restaurant banquet room, 610 Columbia Street West, Kamloops, BC on Thursday, September 4th, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. for an evening of memories. Immediate arrival at 5:00p.m. is not necessary. An open mic will be provided, and anyone who wishes to share memories is encouraged to do so. Due to his activism in the snowmobiling community and devotion to educating sledders, Joe and Katie request that in lieu of flowers, donations in Al’s memory be made to the Canadian Avalanche Centre so they may continue to increase awareness and safety in the back country.
