Obituary

Audlee Tredgett

As Roland Cilliers of the Forester said, in an article in 2018,” to call Audlee Tredgett a local celebrity is a bit of an understatement.”

Audlee was from Toronto originally, grew up in Orillia at HRC, and came to Huntsville in 1987, but not without the concerns of his family and friends, that a community may take advantage of his gentle nature. Once he settled into his own apartment, group living was not his thing, and neither was a sheltered workshop, so he found work in the community, he began to thrive. And thrive, and thrive he did. Until he became a local celebrity. He was passionate about people, he needed to be among them, greeting them and catching up. He loved his church, and all the people in the church, old and new, and participated in all activities going on. He was an active church member, and held honored roles in the church.

He loved sports, and the Otters, all the Otters, and was at all the games and practices, and cheered them on. He participated in Special Olympics, bowling, Rotary, he was on the Board of Directors for Community Living Huntsville, he played piano and drums at church any chance he could, contributed to church bulletins and services whenever he could, and became very familiar with the radio stations. He made friends wherever he went, and always remembered their names and birthdays. He attended all the activities in Huntsville, and was fully present and participating in music groups and dances, cheering on dance troupes, and artists, and visitors, concerts and parades.

AS Grant Nickalls, friend of Audlee’s, said, “Audlee is a community driven person, one of the people who makes you feel like he’s been waiting for you all day!”

We are all richer for having known him, and blessed to have called him friend.

Audlee is survived by his sister Lynda Davis, nephew Ralph Fish, niece Patty Lynn. He died peacefully Saturday March 23, 2019 at Huntsville District Memorial Hospital.

The visitation will take place on March 31, 2019 at Billingsley Funeral Home, 430 Ravenscliffe Road, Huntsville from 2-4 p.m., 6-8 p.m. and on April 1, 2019 from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Salvation Army, 4 Mary Street, Huntsville followed by the funeral service at 1 p.m. Reception to follow. Audlee will be laid to rest at York Cemetery in Toronto with his parents. As an expression of sympathy memorial donations can be made to the Salvation Army.

I have never forgotten the first words Audlee said to me when I was introduced to him at Community Living..."I'm going to like you". Followed by "when is your birthday?" That pretty well sums up the attitude that was the hallmark of this kind and gentle man. My grandkids always enjoyed saying hi to Audlee when they visited in the summer; they will be so sorry to hear of his passing. Joanne Pagendam

Audlee was a friend of a gentleman I supported, Wilbur Gonneau. They got reacquainted at an HRC fun day. As Wilbur was a man of few in words, I learned from Audlee that he and Wilbur had been roommates at HRC. After that Audlee called Wilbur on the phone and sometimes we would make the trek from Bracebridge up to Huntsville so Wilbur could visit Audlee at his apartment. Audlee never missed calling the radio station for Wilbur's birthday. I was the one to call and tell Audlee of Wilbur's passing. Today they are in Heaven together. Perhaps they are roommates again in the city of gold.. Such a kind soul and good friend to Wilbur. Thank you God for Audlee.

I remember Audlee from Sunday School at Century Baptist Church in Toronto. I lost track of him when he moved away so many years ago. It warmed my heart to read so many wonderful tributes to him and to read about his kindness to so many people over so many years.

Audlee, you were truly God's special child and an example of how we should all treat each other. Your smiling face will be greatly missed but we know there is rejoicing in Heaven as another saint has arrived home. I will miss your monthly calls reminding me of the Salvation Army's men's breakfast. Roger Wager

I met Audlee almost thirty five years ago, when I was Night Supervisor in the first Community Group Home in Huntsville. Audlee adjusted quickly to his new home in Huntsville and made many friends in the community and his church. For a number of years Audlee remembered my birthday, April 26 and phoned the local radio station and wished me Happy Birthday. I have missed his friendly greetings on Main Street and King William this past year or two. "Hello ah Lloyd ah Henry". May you rest in God's peace.
