Allan was born July 30, 1928 in McMunn, Manitoba, and passed away in Abbotsford, BC in his 80th year on April 25, 2008.
Al is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Beverley; his son, Wayne (Faye); his daughter, Shirley (Fred) Moon; and his grandchildren: Michelle, Ken and Robynn. He is also survived by his brothers: Gordon, and John (Marian) Busilla of Winnipeg; as well as many other cousins, nephews and nieces.
Allan was a hard working individual, as attested by those that knew him, trying his hand at farming, mining, construction as well as his 35 year tenure with the British Columbia Telephone Co.
Allan had made his home here in Abbotsford for more than 50 years, originally coming to this area as the BC Telephone district repairman.
All that knew him will remember him as a very kind and generous man. He was that friend or neighbour that would show up at your door with home-grown tomatoes, or to bring you a taste of his smoked salmon.
He was a very genuine individual, who spoke his mind and never hesitated to stop and say hello to you, as well as lending you a helping hand when needed. He leaves a legacy of love and generosity, and will be greatly missed by us all.
Friends and family are invited to join in a celebration of Allan’s life which will take place at 1:00 pm May 1, 2008 at the Rancho, 35110 Delair Road, Abbotsford, BC.
Flowers are graciously declined by the family, and those wishing to honour Allan’s memory can do so with a donation to their favourite charity.
