The Family of “Deano” (Dean Purdy) of Alder Flats, Alberta, announces his unexpected passing at the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre on Saturday, October 23, 2021 at the age of 62 years.
Deano was born in Calgary and grew up in Hillhurst, a northwest area of the city. In 1972 when he was in his early teens, Deano moved with his family to Rimbey where he graduated from the Rimbey Jr./Sr. High School in 1977. Deano worked on the family farm for years, later entering the construction and concrete field with his close friends, working all around the Rimbey area. In 2005 he met Kathy, in 2006 he moved to Vegreville for a short time, and in 2008 Deano and Kathy settled in Alder Flats. He really enjoyed the acreage at Alder Flats, putting his green thumb to work to produce the most amazing gardens! Deano grew everything imaginable. His last endeavour was working for the Wetaskiwin School Board as custodian, following in his father’s footsteps. Deano was always available to lend a helping hand to others, caring greatly for his friends and relatives. He loved riding his motorcycle, and as you can see by looking at the attached photo, he also loved 4x4ing … and mud!
Deano was laid to rest in the West Haven Cemetery, Rimbey at a later date. If friends desire, memorial tributes in his memory may be made directly to the charity of one’s choice. Condolence messages may be forwarded to the family by visiting: www.ofc-ltd.ca
