I credit Mr. Albury for the first person to get me up on a pair of skis behind his boat when I was a kid along with Chris. I always enjoyed being over at Chris’ house as a teenager. Mr. Albury had a great sense of humour and always had a great story of some sort to get a point across about life lessons. And Mrs. Albury was always so very nice. I am sure he is back by her side. My heart goes out to you Chris and Laurie. I will never forget your Dad.

I was privileged to dance with Raleigh over the years.I remember when he and my daughter took classes at the same time.His smile brightened a room He always asked about my daughter because he loved to hear her sing.He was an unforgettable person and like Santa Claus he was everywhere.He will be missed but now he has a perfect body and got to see his wife again.

A sweet and dear friend who will be missed by all who knew him. Raleigh was one of the first friends that I and my husband made when we first started square dancing 10 years ago. A fond greeting of a hug and “here’s my favorite corner, “ every time we met in a square, although I suspect I wasn’t his only favorite. It was always a joy to see him and I will miss him.
