La famille tient à remercier tous les parents et amis qui ont aimé et soutenu Allyre pendant toute sa vie. Depuis le décès de son épouse Madeline, en 1980, il a fait tout son possible pour appuyer ses enfants. Nous sommes fiers de tout ce qu'il a accompli dans sa vie, de sa carrière militaire, de sa vie professionnelle, et du modèle qui nous a fourni comme père de famille. C'est avec grande tristesse que nous lui disons "Au revoir au ciel". On t'aime Papa.
