Aloys was born on November 23, 1938 in Macklin, Sask. He was the second of nine children of Albert & Christina Vogel. He attended Blarney School and took over the family farm, north of Compeer, AB in 1975. He was very mechanical and loved to build and fix things. Aloys enjoyed farming and tending to his cattle. He often replied, “my cows make me happy”. He enjoyed the outdoors and loved to garden. In his pastime he played his keyboard. His gift of music was enjoyed by many when he played at the Lodge and Nursing Home. He enjoyed visiting with his neighbors and helping when he could.
He was a very quiet, gentle, and honest man. He enjoyed the simple things in life, content with small pleasures. He found goodness in everyone. It was a blessing that he was able to enjoy the farm, well into his old age, being able to live the way he wanted, right to the very end.
