Alvin Doerksen
1965 – 2019
It is with great joy and sorrow that we mourn the passing of our father, grandfather, brother, son and spouse, Alvin Doerksen.
Alvin was born August 19, 1965 to Harold and Catherine Doerksen in Colony Bergthal, Paraguay. He moved to Canada in April 1978 and grew up in Niverville, MB. Alvin started working at Niverville Autobody at the age of 14 and this is where his love of cars came from. He was baptized in the summer of 1990. He had numerous jobs in his life from welding jobs to more body shop jobs. He worked at Vintage Bods and Rods. This was his dream job. Working on old cars was his pride and joy along with his children and grandchildren. Alvin was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma on February 14, 2018. He fought hard but the Lord took him home on April 12, 2019 at 2:05 a.m. at Boundary Trails Health Centre with Jackie at his side. Most of his children were able to spend the evening with him before he passed on.
Alvin is survived by Jackie and his children: daughter, Cheri Ray (Warren), daughter, Jessica Vandenbos (Marc) and their children, Treydyn and Aria, his son, Ryan (Ashely) and children, Josiah and Sophia, his son, Corey (Jasmin) and their daughter, Alexa, his mother, Catherine Friesen (Nelson), sisters, Stella (Ken), Edna (Bill), Rose (Norm) and their families. Alvin was predeceased by his father Harold ion 2001 and sister, Elaine in infancy.
Funeral service at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday April 17, 2019 at the Roland United Church with interment at Fairview Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate any donations to help out with costs.
