It is with deep sad­ness that the fam­ily of Al­lan an­nounce his pass­ing on Sun­day, May 15, 2016 at the age of 87 years. His in­fec­tious smile and happy de­meanor will be missed by all that knew him. When Al­lan re­tired from Esso Re­sources fol­low­ing a 35 year ca­reer, he lived to the fullest with his wife Joyce, fam­ily and friends. Al­lan and Joyce spent many sum­mer months with rel­a­tives in Row­ley, Al­berta, in ad­di­tion to golf­ing, round and square danc­ing and trav­el­ling. Dur­ing the colder months the cou­ple en­joyed bowl­ing and curl­ing. Al­lan loved tin­ker­ing with old lawn mow­ers that he bought at garage sales and do­ing crossword puz­zles. But Al­lan got the most joy spend­ing time with his chil­dren, grand­chil­dren and great grand­chil­dren. Al­lan is sur­vived by his lov­ing wife Joyce, sons Rory, Scott (Judy) and daugh­ter Co­ralee Hobbs. Al­lan is also sur­vived by his sis­ter Phyl­lis Booth­man, his six grand­chil­dren and seven great-grand­chil­dren, all of whom will miss his big warm hugs. Al­lan was pre­de­ceased by his daugh­ter Shona Bishop, brother Tom, sis­ter He­len Bysouth and his par­ents.
