It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Albert Trewin on Wednesday, January 21, 2015 after a long battle with cancer.

Albert was born on April 23, 1927 to Mabel and Norman Trewin and attended school in Slate River. Ab worked at Great Lakes Pulp and Paper Company, beginning at age 15 until his retirement. He married Norah Agombar in 1949 and together they raised four children. Their family spent many happy years camping at Burchell Lake.
