ALLEN, Willard Finlay
The Guest Book is expired.
Born in London, Ontario on May 15th, 1924 and died Victoria, BC on July 25th, 2012. He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Audrey; their four children, Steven (Connie), Anne (Ian Duncan), Eric (Karen Godwin), and Mary (Bryan Bonell) and their lovely grandchildren, Nora, Rachel, Madeleine and Kate. Willard grew up in Ontario where he earned a PhD in Chemistry at the University of Toronto in 1948. He and Audrey then moved to Alberta where they raised their family and he taught at the University of Alberta. Retiring in 1984, they moved to Victoria and enjoyed many years of family, friends and travels. Willard was a friend to all who knew him; his wisdom and wit will be missed.
A celebration of his life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 2, St. David by the Sea, Anglican Church, 5182 Cordova Bay Road, Victoria, BC. In lieu of flowers donations may be directed to the Heart and Stroke Foundation (www.heartandstroke.bc.ca) or to the charity of your choice.
