Alvin Joseph Vickers of Miramichi NB passed away Saturday September 18, at Miramichi Regional Hospital, at the age of 68.

Born in Chatham NB, he was the son of the late William and Carmel (Dolan) Vickers. He was a carpenter/Superintendent for Ellis-Don. He was a member of the Roman Catholic Church.

“Al loved travelling the country, and lived in Vancouver, Calgary, Thunder Bay, Southern Ontario, Halifax and the Miramichi area over the course of his life and touched the lives of many people from all walks of life. He was always seeking a new adventure in his life and career so, he was involved with several prominent construction projects across the country including the Hemlo Mine in Marathon Ontario, BMO Centre in Calgary, The Lindsay Park Pool Facility for the Calgary Olympics, Toronto Subway Extension, The Halifax Shopping Centre, and The Irving Headquarters in Saint John. He is also remembered for his love of vehicles, and especially Harley Davidson motorcycles, which he rode all across North America as often as he could.”

He is survived by one daughter Tracey Brisby (Matt) of Halifax, three sisters, Mary Vickers of Fredericton NB, Karen MacDonald (Jerome) of Bathurst NB and Lavinia (Vicki) Kennedy (Stephen) of North Tetagouche NB, two brothers, Bill “Jarvis” Vickers (Loretta) of Calgary AB and Scott Vickers (Diana) of Blackville NB.

Besides his parent, he was predeceased by many aunts and uncles but is survived by Aunt Christina Vickers (no spouse, lives in Howard). Also survived by his former wife Jeannine Vickers, the mother of his daughter, Tracey.

Alvin Joseph Vickers is resting at St. Raphael’s Roman Catholic Church, Blackville, with visitation on Saturday from 11 a.m. until the time of Mass of Christian Burial at 1 p.m. Burial will follow in St. Raphael’s Roman Catholic Cemetery, Blackville.
