He was born Oct. 2, 1920, in Marshfield to Felix Cournoyer and Mary Staeck. He married Verna Boehm on Nov. 6, 1943, at Christ the King Catholic Church in Spencer. They were married for 55 years. She preceded him in death on June 27, 1999.

He farmed in the town of Brighton until retirement and then moved into the village of Spencer. He was a member of Christ the King Church. He enjoyed fishing, playing cards, his casino trips and visits with his friends and family. He always was ready for a good time. Alfred was a very loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend to everyone he met.

He is survived by his four daughters, Judy Welsh of Madison, Diane (Darin) Westover of Wausau, Donna Ensor of Elizabethton, Tenn., and Dawn (Jim) Griesbach of Marshfield; his son, Randy (Sue) Cournoyer of Spencer; eight grandchildren; three great-grandsons; one brother, Russell Cournoyer of Menomonie Falls; three sisters, Eileen Lahr, Ruth Katzenberger and Margie Rank, all of Marshfield; and special brothers-in-laws, sisters-in-laws, many nieces, nephews and many friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Verna; a son-in-law, Curt Welsh; brother, Dennis; a nephew; and seven brother-in-laws and four sister-in-laws.

The family wants to recognize the Colonial Center of Colby and North Central Health Car Unit C of Wausau for all the loving care given to our Dad during the last five years.

He will be missed by all who knew him. You'll always be with us in our hearts and memories. In lieu of flowers, memorials will be designated later.
