Sidney ALTON

ALTON Sidney Alton of Red Deer passed away at the Red Deer Regional Hospital on Sunday, October 22, 2006 at the age of 71 years. Sid was born in Edmonton on April 16, 1935. He worked as a body mechanic and took great pride in the vehicles he worked on. He enjoyed playing all kinds of sports and especially loved coaching his children in their different activities. He was an outdoorsman at heart and the family camping trips were very memorable times for him. He had good times on fishing trips with his buddies as well. After retirement, Sid and his wife Joyce, moved to Northern Alberta where they enjoyed lakefront living. Here Sid would enjoy watching and listening to the varieties of birds and just the beauty of nature. Music was a very important part of Sid’s life. He loved all types of music and he and Joyce loved to go out dancing in their younger years. Sid was a prankster with a keen sense of humour and he will be greatly missed by all his family and friends. Sid will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Joyce Alton, three children; Lori Alton of Edmonton, Cheryl Alton and Bob Alton both of Red Deer, three grandchildren; Ashley McEwen of Edmonton, Cole Alton and Megan Alton both of Red Deer.
