Hiller, Albert

The fascinating life of Albert Hiller ended on December 30, 2014. Albert was born December 6, 1928 in Saskatchewan. He moved to Chilliwack as a young boy.

Albert’s life path took him from work on passenger rail, to working in “Queen Charlotte” on log booms, to farming, where he met his devoted wife, Violet. Albert settled on Lumsden Road with his family. In 1956, he had a logging accident that left him a paraplegic.
