Alvin Werner

b. 10 January 1966 -  Steinbach, Manitoba

d. 30 September 2020 - Cochrane, Alberta


Alvin Werner, much loved husband, father, brother and friend, passed away suddenly in the early evening of September 30th, 2020, in Cochrane Alberta at the age of 54.


Alvin’s life was built around his love of family, friendships, outdoor adventure, aviation, and travel. His passion for photography, WWII history and modelling is familiar to everyone who got to know him. He worked hard, played hard and lived each day to the fullest. He had a boundless curiosity and loved to learn, enjoying conversations and sharing new ideas with friends. Alvin was steadfast, loyal and generous; a straight-shooter with a mischievous sense of humour.


He is survived by his wife Lise, his daughters Sonja and Kaysa, his brothers Hans, Willie, Gerhard, and sisters Marie, Alvina, and Sieglinde.


A celebration of Alvin’s life will be live-streamed at 10:30 am  on Friday October 9, 2020, at the following:


In lieu of gifts or flowers, donations can be made in Alvin’s name to Mennonite Central Committee Alberta (403 275 6935;, or Cochrane Food Bank. (
