Mr. Alfred Ernest Young of

Rimbey, Alberta passed away at the

Alfred was born on December 23, 1911 at Swalwell,

Alberta. He was the second eldest of nine children born

to Ernest and Florence Young. Alfred came to the

Rimbey area in the mid-1930’s from Swalwell. He met

and was later united in marriage to Eunice Brown of

Forshee; and to this union, three children were born.

Alfred was a farmer, but was better known as “The Horse

Trader — Alfred Young”. He possessed a great love for

horses and rodeo’s. Another passion he loved to do was

haying. Alfred was an ardent rodeo enthusiast, and he

waited every year for the chuckwagons and horses to

park on his acreage. He looked forward to the Rimbey

Rodeo, and was a lifetime member of the Rimbey Rodeo


Alfred will be lovingly remembered by his beloved wife,

Eunice; two sons, Duane (Bev) Young of Marwayne,

Alberta; and Roy (Janet) Young of Breton; and one

daughter, June (Jim) Gracie of Ottawa, Ontario; as well

as seven grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.

Stan Young of Three Hills; and Jack (Marge) Young of
