Aloysius Labour

Aloysius Labour, dedicated husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather passed away at home on Sunday, August 20, 2023.
Born June 2, 1938 to the late John and Hannah (Hackett) Labour of English Harbour East, Newfoundland.
Al learned to fish at a very early age and that love for the ocean lead him on many adventures and ultimately to the love of his life Doris “Dot”. Al and Dot were married on May 27, 1961. Later that year the sea came calling him again and he moved with his bride and their infant daughter back to Newfoundland. It wasn’t long before Dot was expecting their second child and longing for her home so they headed home to Nova Scotia and put down roots in East Port L’Hebert where they grew their love and family, having a total of four children.
But for as much as Al loved the sea, he loved his family more. He worked hard and weathered many storms often sacrificing himself to provide for his family. This hard work made him a proud man and a man to be proud of. He was never at a loss for a good fishing story and would beam as he watched the eyes of his listeners dance, he could make you feel like you were right there with him. He especially loved telling these stories to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren who affectionately call him Bompy.
Al is survived by his loving wife Dot, Children Maria (Craig), East Port L’Hebert, Aloysius Jr. (Debbie), Port Mouton, Peter (Amy), White Point, Crissy (Sheldon), East Port L’Hebert. Grandchildren Christopher, Natasha, Nicole, Robert, Nicholas, Dylan and Conrad. Great-grandchildren Emma, Leland, Jase, Landon, Stella and Ivy and many nieces and nephews.
Al was predeceased by brothers Augustine, Peter, Raymond and Chesley.
