On Tuesday July 17, 2012, Mr. Alberto de Brito Coelho of Oliver passed away at Sunnybank Centre due to complications of a stroke at the age of 82 years.
He was predeceased by his wife Celeste; daughter Rosa Edwards and grandson Dakota McNab.
Alberto will be fondly remembered by his loving family including son Joe (Cathy); daughter Linda (Danny) McNab; grandsons Andrew (Christie) Coelho, Peter (Shannon) Coelho, Justin (Naomi) Edwards and Chad (Vicky) Edwards; granddaughter Kaitlin McNab; great-granddaughters Lucy Coelho and Avie Coelho; two brothers and two sisters in Portugal as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family in Canada, U.S. and Portugal.
When Alberto first arrived in Canada, he worked in construction. He then became a cabinet maker in Calgary. When the family moved to Oliver, Alberto took up being a orchardist.
Over the years Alberto made a few trips back to Portugal to visit family and made many trips to Calgary and Kitimat to visit close friends.

Dear Linda, Danny, Kaitlin and all the family. I’m shocked and saddened to hear of the loss of dear Alberto.
What a lovely man, always smiling and joking and inspiring a laugh in the dining room at Sunnybank. I’m sure he will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him. My Mom and I always enjoyed the atmosphere that included Alberto joking and shouting at the girls. May God bless you with many happy memories.
