Dennis Allen July 18, 1929 - March 29, 2014 Denny passed away peacefully with family by his side. He is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Esther, daughter Heather, son Doug (Debbie) and grandsons Nicholas, Michael (Jessica), John, Derek (Katy), Clayton, Steven and Jeffery. Born in Hornpayne, Ontario, Denny moved to Vancouver at age 17 with his parents Winifred and Harry. He learned his trade as a butcher and later worked for Canada Packers in sales. In 1970 he became General Sales Manager for Fletcher's Fine Foods, where his wit and humour became his trademark. After retiring in 1987, he focused on family, friends and was actively involved in his church. The family would like to thank Dr. Ferra, Dr. LeaSon, and the staff at Mount St Joseph Hospital. A service will be held on Wednesday, April 2nd at 11:00 am at St. Mary's Anglican Church, 808 East 50th Ave., Vancouver V5X 1B5. In lieu of flowers a donation to St. Mary's South Hill Anglican Church in Denny's memory would be appreciated.
