Passed away peacefully at the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital on Thursday January 10, 2019, Albert "Wilkie" Wilkinson, at 95 years of age.

A WW2 Veteren, he served his country in the Royal Canadian Air Force for over 25 years before returning to his home in Wellington in 1967.

He is survived by his wife Ada (nee Hatheway), a loving partner for over 75 years, by his devoted daughter Beverly Skidmore and by his son-in-law Don, by his children by affection, Doug and Donna Trimble, and by his sister, Joyce Garner. He also leaves behind many caring nieces and nephews.

He lived a wonderful full and active life and both family and friends will sadly miss this exceptional soul. Good times were always had whenever he was around.

A celebration of his life will be held at the Picton Golf and Country Club on Saturday January 19 from 2 to 4 pm. with tributes at 2:30 pm.

If desired, Wilkie had two favourite charities - The Salvation Army of Prince Edward County and Covenant House in Toronto which cares for homeless children.

Arrangements entrusted to the Hicks Funeral Home, 2 Centre Street, Picton.

At this time there are very few words to describe my feelings for the loss of my uncle Ab. I was very saddened to hear of his passing. To my cousin Bev and my aunt Ada, you have my deepest sympathy. On behalf of myself and my wife Bev (Beverly) you have our deepest condolences. We are thinking of you both during this time of sadness.

Hi Bev and Ada... we have just returned from Florida only to learn of this very sad news. Our sincere condolences to Aunt Ada, you and Don. He will be missed by all. Last I saw him in the summer, he was raising the flag in the backyard and struggling with the pole so I gladly assisted him raise the Canadian flag. He was pleased and then proceeded to show me all his flowers. My mother Lillian has a picture of her brother Ab above her bed at her nursing home in Brampton.. I will convey this sad news to her.
