JOHN WILLIAM ALLAN It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a cherished man. With his family by his side John passed from complications due to pneumonia on January 18, 2013 at the Trillium Health Centre. John was in his 82nd year, dearly loved husband of Christine (Phillips) for 48 years and loving Dad to Rhonda, Leanne (Tim) and David (Louise) and dearly loved Poppa of Heather, Blake and Andrew. Forever in the hearts of brother Robert (Jean), sister-in-law Gladys Phillips, and brother- in-law Mervyn Phillips (Liz). Met in heaven by his parents Dr. A.W. and Marjorie Allan, sisters Norma Jean, Judy, brother- in-law Herbert Phillips and in-laws Albert and Mary Phillips and his beloved dog Petey. John retired from Agriculture Canada in 1988 after an extraordinary career that took him travelling to as far as Brazil to aid the establishment of their meat grading standards. In his youth John attended Prince of Wales College in Charlottetown, Nova Scotia Agriculture College and completed his Bachelor of Science at MCGill University (MACDonald Campus) in 1957. John was a long-standing member of the Woodchucks Woodworking group and the Huronsauga Golf and Social Club.
