CARRUTHERS, Richard (Al)



It is with great sadness that the family of Al Carruthers announce his peaceful passing on the afternoon of Friday, May 5, 2023 at the age of 78.
Al will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 54 years Marie; his children, Jodi (Bob and Ashley) and Deanna; his only brother Terry (Myrna); his niece Breanne (Jeff and Oliver); his nephew Reagan (Hayley and Caden); together with his extended family in Ontario, British Columbia, and Scotland; and countless friends who were more like family.
Al had a lengthy career as a radio announcer and a short run as a TV weatherman. He was most proud of a media monitoring company he started with two colleagues. Following his retirement, Al most enjoyed heading to the lake to laze around in the pool and be surrounded by his family and friends.
In accordance with his wishes, there will not be a funeral service. As his family was the most important part of his life and what he was most proud of, he would want you to gather with your family, raise a glass and share some memories, especially the funny ones. We know he will be there as he loved to hear them.

Memorial donations can be made in Al’s name to The Kidney Foundation of Canada or the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Manitoba.

Al’s family kindly requests that you visit his tribute page at A photo-biography as well as memories and stories published by those who knew him are available there.
