Always game for any adventure, loved people and was happiest when he was out in nature or "making things happen", volunteering, cooking, entertaining, sports, firefighting, working and public service.

I knew Allen through the time we shared as firefighters with the View Royal Volunteer Fire Department. Allen served his community for over 10 years and retired as an honourary member.

Allen had a smile that would light up any room. His warm sense of humour, his enthusiasm, his compassion for people, and his love for his family were unwavering.

One year I asked Allen to come down to the Rainbow Sea Cadet barracks and put on a woodworking class for the teenagers. They built bird feeders. He taught them how to measure and cut the wood; how to use a screwdriver and a power drill. Most kids had never touched a tool before and were very proud of their creations. He fostered a great sense of enthusiasm with his students. I honestly don't know who had more fun - the kids or him. That was Allen...

Rest in peace my friend.

To Als immediate and extended family,my sincere condolences on Als passing. I met Al on the 4 Mile smoking deck a number of years ago. He had the capability of finding out"who was who and who did what"in short order due to his outgoing personality. Upon finding out I had a truck and knew which end of a hammer to use,I was then destined to become part of his renovation team for about 3 years untill he moved up island. Al was one of the nicest guys, off and at work resulting in becoming a real good friend. He always thanked us at the end of the day for a job well done and an outstanding boss to work for. I will always cherish his friendship along with our laughs around our"after work koolies"back in the day and will always miss him greatly. If Heaven needs any work done,Im sure he is already on the job in earnest. Regards,B.Bruce

My loving brother. You will be truly missed by all of us, especially your family who were always foremost in your thoughts. I wished we had more time to grow old together. I find comfort knowing you are with our mom and sister Valerie watching down at us from above. You were so important to our family as a brorher, brother in law and fun and loving uncle..."Uncle Al the children's pal". I miss you.

To Susan my sincerest condolences. Allen was especially happy in his later years having found happiness with you and your large extended family. You welcomed him with open arms into your hearts and his smile was that much brighter. He will be sadly missed. Diane

Words can't express how sad I/we feel but knowing that you're free of pain and are continuing your travels thru Heaven, brings comfort as does the many fond memories we share. To Jenn and Sarah, our beautiful daughters, though today and every tomorrow starts without your Dad, his spirit is right there in your hearts shining brightly. Safe journey, Diane.
