The following obituary appeared Alameda Dispatch published in Alameda, Saskatchewan 8 May 1942:
It is with sincere regret we record the death of Alfred Moffat, Frobisher, which took place on Monday morning, 4th of May at St. Joseph's hospital, Estevan, aged 64 years and 7 months. Deceased had been in failing health for about two years but there was no evidence of anything serious; he entered the hospital on Tuesday 28th alto to undergo an operation for rupture; the operation was performed on Wednesday and the patient appeared to be progressing well; his wife and family visited him on Sunday and he was then considered to be on the road to recovery; on Monday morning they were notified of his turn for the worse and death came peacefully. Born in Newtonville, Ont. in the year 1878, he came to western Canada in March 1909 and settled in Frobisher district; in August of that year he was married at Moose Jaw, to Miss Myrtle White; four of a family were born to the union being: Janet (Mrs. Elmer Hume of Carlyle), Annie, at Matheson, Ont., Herbert at home and Graeme, a student at the University of Saskatchewan, at present at home.

The late Mr. Moffat was of a quiet and retiring disposition, not given to active participation in local organizations; he was a devoted husband and an indulgent father, exemplifying the type of citizen who built this new west; in farming he was successful and respected by all who knew him; his passing has left a void in the home where he was beloved; to his sorrowing wife and family the deepest sympathy is being extended. Deceased leaves two brothers, Thomas at Newcastle, Ont. and Roger at Frobisher.

The funeral will be held on Thursday afternoon, 7th inst., service being conducted at the family residence commencing at 2:30 o'clock; interment will follow in Frobisher Cemetery.

My father (Graeme Moffat) has always said that the hard depression years killed his father. The work and worry wore him down. Oil was not discovered on Alfred's land until year's after his death.

Note that Alfred's funeral was held on his wife's 64th birthday, May 7th, 1942.12
