Alvin Edward Breitman, born 1939 in Winnipeg, died on April 13th in Calgary. His family was by his side.
He is survived by his loving wife Karen, daughters Terri Breitman (Daniel Rettenbacher), Deanne Breitman (Abraham Alexander), and Janna Breitman (Greg Breen), grandchildren Eli, Adah, Levi, and Bodie, sisters Sylvia Bass (Harold) and Shirley Davis (Saul) and many beloved nieces and nephews who affectionately called him Uncle Boomy. He is predeceased by his sister Belle Grand (Morry) and brother Joseph Breitman (Miriam).
Alvin grew up in Winnipeg’s vibrant North End community and attended the venerable St. John’s Tech. After completing his education at the University of Manitoba, he practiced law in Winnipeg for many years. He moved to Calgary with his family in 1983, where he focused on business and property interests.
Ever passionate about history, politics, current affairs, and sports, he was always ready for a spirited debate or a game of Trivial Pursuit.
Alvin will be remembered by all who knew him as a kind and generous man who was very dedicated to his family. Above all, he was a loving and devoted father and will be greatly missed. Funeral was held at the Chevra Kadisha in Calgary.
