Alfred David Alexander Houston

July 7, 1937 ~ December 1, 2020 (age 83)










It is with bittersweet sadness that the family of Alfred David Alexander Houston announces his peaceful passing at the age of 83 years.  Alf’s wife, Myrna, of 58 years was by his side throughout and cared for him palliatively at the end in their Cornwall home.  His children David (JoAnne), Wendy (Omar) and Blair (Connie) will remember him as this powerful force of nature and a loving father.  Proud grandfather to Brittany (Danny), Jo-Hanna, Alexander, Houston, Kelley, Victoria, Marshall, Claudia, William, Samantha and Daniel.  He lived to see his great grandson Edmundo Alfredo before his death.  Alfie was predeceased by his parents Rosina and Albert and his brother Peter.  


Friends and family would agree that he emulated his favourite music, “I’ve lived a life that’s full, I’ve travelled each and every highway, but more, much more than this, I did it my way.”  His booming singing voice and personality has fallen silent but will not be forgotten. 




A celebration of life will take place when circumstances allow.  Arrangements have been entrusted to McArthur Bros. & MacNeil Funeral Home & Chapel in Cornwall (613-932-6300).  Memorial donations to Hospice Cornwall gratefully acknowledged.  Online condolences and memories can be shared by visiting
