Albin Berglund Hochsteiner

July 12, 1940 - July 1, 2024


On Monday, July 1, 2024, Albin Hochsteiner of Osoyoos passed away suddenly, but peacefully, surrounded by family at the age of 83. He is predeceased by his parents William and Hilda Hochsteiner and his sister Eunice “Toots” Berglund. Albin is survived by his sisters Mavis Trenholm and Gail Hochsteiner; nephew Blaine Trenholm (Sherry); daughters Chanel and Rylee; niece Carla Vieira; and sons Jordan (Ali) and Eric.

Albin was a true sportsman and hunter; no one appreciated a good hunting dog quite like Albin and he won numerous trophies over the years with his hounds at field trials and treeing contests throughout the Pacific Northwest. He owned and operated Pioneer Meat Market as a butcher and a hunting guide/ outfitter, as well as co-owner of Pioneer Car Wash. Albin excelled in many sports including basketball, softball, and hockey. He won many awards and trophies in these athletic endeavours. He loved watching a good horse race, and was a volunteer at Desert Park Race Track for many years and even ran a few of his own horses.

A Celebration of Life for Albin will be announced at a later date.

Donations in honour of Albin’s love of the outdoors can be made to the Northern Lights Wildlife Society by visiting or by mail at:
