Albert Koepfli

Oct. 8, 1930-May 4, 2013

Albert Koepfli died in his sleep on May 4, 2013, in Helena, Mont.

Al was born in Seattle, Wash., (King County) in the Swedish Hospital on Oct. 8, 1930. He lived in Bellingham, Wash., raising horses. In 1973, Al moved to Homer and his first place of residence was at the historical Tandoo cabin. He later moved and lived in Larry Slavins’ two-story log cabin with Hobo Jim and Annie Vogel.

He was a friend to many and always willing to help out someone in need. His nickname was “Mystery Al” due to him never revealing much about himself.

His ashes were sent to Homer in order to be released into the bay on the Spit, where he loved to fish. 

Al is survived by his son, Jon, and loved by many.
