Alfred was born June 25, 1928 in Stanwood, WA. He passed peacefully April 8, 2014 with his family by his side at his home. Alfred leaves behind his wife of 65 years, Lois Schei; three children, Steve (Sonia) Schei, Roxie (Greg) Harrison, and Bruce (Teresa) Schei; eight grandchildren, Ryan (Annette) Schei, Angie (Jon) Doebke, Brandon (Lisa) Schei, Trevor (Julie) Harrison, Josh Harrison, Erik (Emily) Schei, Jeremy (McKenzie) Schei, and Kyle Schei; eleven great-grandchildren; and his dear friend, David (Nicole) Smith. Alfred also leaves behind his sister, Irene Simonseth; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Oliver and Ida Schei; and six brothers and sisters. Babes biggest joy was watching family enjoy his farm as much as he did. His home was always filled with family. He loved talking old times with the grandkids. He also loved telling them jokes. Alfred would take daily drives around the Stanwood area to check on things. He always knew what the neighbors were up to. Alfred, Al, Babe, Dad, Gramps, Or Papa moo, you were called by many names and loved dearly by all. We will miss you. At Babe's request, there will be no formal service just a gathering at farm with family and close friends. Remembrances can be made to Children's Hospital or to Providence Hospice. Arrangements under direction of Gilbertson Funeral Home, Stanwood, WA.
