Passed away peacefully on January 26, 2021 at the age of 72 years. Abb is survived by his beloved spouse of 35 years, Georgette. Cherished father of Albert Steven Naklie. Surviving family members Fraser Naklie (brother), Leila Denouden (sister), Debra Naklie (sister-in-law), Peter Denouden (brother-in-law). Predeceased by his mother Mabel and father Albert. My father Abb Naklie had many passions and interests in life, he loved working with computers as a child and went to school for computer technology. He had a very rewarding career as a computer technician. He loved music and for as long as I can remember my father, he would love playing his piano and it gave him great joy and pleasure. As time went on he became very interested in and developed a love for astronomy and he would spend a great deal of time looking at the sky and stars through his telescopes. My father was the greatest and kindest man I knew. He loved his family and lived his life as a compassionate and gentle soul. Arrangements entrusted to the Janisse Funeral Home (1139 Ouellette Ave., 519-253-5225). A private Graveside Service will be held at 3 pm on Friday.

I was shocked to hear of Abb's passing. I had known him almost my whole life. Before my dearly departed husband Paul and I were married, he told me that if he didn't ask me for a date, Abb said he would do it for him. Not long after that conversation, Paul and I dated for a short time and were married soon after. Guess what? Abb was our best man and we remained friends. When Paul was struck with liver cancer, Abb took the time to take him to Tim Horton's for coffee. Paul pre-deceased Abb by more than 10 years in 2008, but no doubt he met him at heaven's gate, where I'm sure they will be friends forever! My thoughts and prayers go out to all Abb's family.
Abby was Nice guy with a kind soul with a Big Heart. He Loved Jesus and the church. Our hearts go out to Georgette, Steven, Leila and Fazer for the amount of grief your endouring. I'm sure Jesus and Mary were there to welcome him home.
Our deepest Sympathy. Richard, George & Yvette Naklie
