Passed away on Monday, April 21, 2014 at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre at the age of 66. Al was the beloved husband of Louise (Challis) for 35 years. Wonderful and loving Dad to Chad (Jen) and Andrea Walsh. Predeceased by his parents Harry and Beth (McGowan) Walsh and his older brother Harry Jr. (MaryAnn). Remembered fondly by extended family, and many friends. Al spent his career of over 30 years working in the Recreation Division of the City of Peterborough. He was also a dedicated community volunteer throughout his life. He taught us, by example, the importance of maintaining a sense of humour when faced with adversity. Though he encountered many challenges in his life, his love for family and his hometown sustained him; he also maintained a love for sports and would never turn down an extra dessert!
