Allan was one of my play pals when we were 10 years old at Stepps Primary. I remember us playing with his chemistry set in his bedroom when we added two explosive chemicals together. His mother was not happy about the blue stain on his wallpaper. Also, at lunchtime we used to go back to his house where we would raid his fridge and larder in order to make stink bombs. I remember Allan and Douglas Keith and I going back a few days later to smell how our brew was going. The other Douglas was not impressed and decided to throw up all around the garden. Oh how Allan and I laughed. Allan was always sporty and it saddens me to see that he was taken away from his family so young. Douglas Adams of Alexandra Ave.

I am so sorry for the tragic loss of Allan .Death can make it difficult to " carry on as usual" . Perhaps this will help. At Psalm 56:8 David pleaded to God: "Do put my tears in your skin bottle. Are they not in your book? Like David I know that God is aware of your pain and whatever you are going through emotionally. .. let him help you he knows what you need. (Jeremiah 29:12) . . .And YOU will certainly call me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to YOU. . .

I only found about this tragic loss today, I met Alan when he coached me for my BASI instructors course and had it not been for him I dont think I would have carried on with it as a career, his sheer enthusiasm and passion for sport was impregnated in myself.

He was a truly amazing and fantasticly professional individual in every way, but also a nicer man you could never meet.

One of the few that no one could dislike.

A true loss to this world. Farewell and Thank You.

It was with the utmost shock I heard of the passing of Allan. My late wife and our family were next door neighbours for many years and from his earliest years Allan was such a fine young man and will be a huge missing to both his family and society in general. It was a privilege to have known him

So much enthusiasm and zest for life. Allan and I did our sea kayak coach assessment at Skyak Adventures. He was so supportive to me - we both passed!
I don't live in the area and had been looking for a while on the Cumbrae website for him, thinking he must have changed jobs.
The smile was just great and he had so many plans.
With two children of a similar age to his, my thoughts are with Nancy and your children.

Just back from Val D'Isere where we re-called the last time we met Allan a year ago. He was working with Mountain Masters and teaching a group of klds. The last time we saw him he was leading them down to Le Fornet at speed, in control and with smiles on their faces. For us, this will always be Bunyan's Run.

Allan was a charming young man who was my son's best friend and best man. They met at a cycling club and had a few adventures! It was a dreadful shock when we heard of his terrible accident. His funeral was a great tribute to his short life. We wish Nancy, Ryan and Allanah strength to cope with their sorrow - love from Lila and Billy

I first met Allan in 1982 whilst on holiday in Les Arc, he was a great skier, a quiet guy and a gentleman. He was always enthusiastic about sports and loved the outdoors life. Most of my memories are based around the Glasgow Ski Club in Bellahouston and ski trips to Glencoe where Allan was part of that scene. The last time I met him was 1989 and even after all that time I feel a sense of loss for a guy I shared some time with. If there is such a thing as an after life I'm sure Allan will be skiing the mountains.

It is with deep deep sadness that I have just heard the news. Allan was wonderful to us and we felt special, but we knew that this was because of his goodness, and that he was as wonderful to everyone. He helped our little girls, Madeleine and Alice, from scratch with their skiing at Val D'Isere in 08 and 09. He piggybacked them and helped them slip "sideeways" when they were frightened. He helped Marie-Louise, my wife, gain her confidence, and my son feel like a star, with help from Ryan too. Within a short, but intensive time, I came to view him as a friend. The warmth of our family's feeling for him flowed through to as warm a feeling for Nancy, Ryan, and Allanah. You know he talked about you with such pride and admiration, and with such love. We remember our taboggoning evening in January this year, and how happy you four were, as we were, and we feel for you deeply. With our love and deepest sympathies, Vincent and Marie-Louise Warner
