Alphons Rosenberger was born to Emil and Agnes Rosenberger, one of eleven children, May 11, 1931 in Goodsoil, Saskatchewan. Alphons was tired of farming rocks in Saskatchewan, so he and two of his brothers went to Fort Vermilion, Alberta, to homestead. Alphons met and married his wife, Katherine shortly after and began raising a family of eight children on a farm near there. In the late 70’s, due to Katherine’s failing health, Alphons went looking for a gentler climate. They finally settled in the Creston Valley, where they resided for the remainder of their years. Anyone who met Al (as he was known to his many friends and family) found him to be a down to earth, strong, loyal, faith filled man. He had conviction and integrity in face of adversity and was not afraid to stand up for what he believed in. He looked after Katherine for many years before she passed away. Alphons was also very social and had a witty sense of humour. His children came to know him to be all of those things at different times in their lives and admired him greatly. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren also saw his gentler, more mischievous side. Alphons is predeceased by his wife, Katherine, son, David, and grandson, Tyler. He is survived by three sisters and one brother, 7 children, 21 grandchildren, and 25 great-grandchildren.
