Bolivar, Allen A.

57, of Green­field, Queens County, passed away peace­fully in Queens Gen­eral Hospi­tal on Oc­to­ber 31, 2017, with fam­ily at his side. Allen was born in Ar­ling­ton, Mas­sachusetts on Septem­ber 2, 1960 to Jan­ice A. (Sousa) (Bolivar) Bauch of Hi­nes­burg, Ver­mont and the late Free­man Aubrey Bolivar. Allen moved to Canada with his fa­ther at the age of seven, to re­side with his fa­ther at the fam­ily home in Buck­field - a child’s par­adise, with woods and fields to ex­plore. He looked for­ward ea­gerly to sum­mer vis­its from his sis­ter Sandy, and vis­its to the States to visit fam­ily there. Allen had a spe­cial re­la­tion­ship with his cousin, An­drew Free­man. They were more like broth­ers and con­tin­ued their close re­la­tion­ship their en­tire lives. When they were young boys, you could see them tear­ing around Green­field and Buck­field in the win­ter on their ski­doos. Allen was a man who loved his soli­tude. He was very happy when at his camp in the woods, with his dogs and na­ture. He was an avid col­lec­tor of “things” and spent many a joy­ful hour at Frenchie’s col­lect­ing any­thing re­lated to his fa­vorite sports teams - all things Bos­ton and New Eng­land. He loved watches and has an in­ter­est­ing col­lec­tion of old ra­dios. He loved hunt­ing with his dogs and any­time spent in the out­doors. Allen loved fam­ily gath­er­ings, and a good fam­ily feast. His quiet smile while watch­ing his nieces and neph­ews was a sign of great plea­sure in his fam­ily. He had a wide cir­cle of friends and his friend­ship will be missed. Be­sides his mother, Allen is sur­vived by his sis­ter Sandy (Marc) Bolivar-adams, neph­ews Matthew and Chris, nieces Sophia and Thu; his brother/cousin An­drew Free­man; step-sis­ter El­iz­a­beth (James) Fraelic, niece Leanne Han­ley, nephew Scott Fraelic; step-brother Bill (Heather) Whar­ton, niece An­gela Ross, nephew Will Whar­ton, sev­eral grand nieces and neph­ews. Last, but not least, his faith­ful com­pan­ion, his dog Lily. He was pre­de­ceased by his fa­ther, Free­man Bolivar, his step­mother Shirley, his grand­par­ents Aubrey and Dorothy Bolivar and his aunt Estelle Free­man. Cre­ma­tion has taken place un­der the di­rec­tion of Chan­dlers’ Fu­neral Home, Liver­pool. A pri­vate grave­side com­mit­tal ser­vice will be held in Pine Rest Ceme­tery, Green­field at a later date. No flow­ers. If you wish, a do­na­tion would be grate­fully ac­cepted to the SHAID an­i­mal shel­ter in Allen’s me­mory. On­line con­do­lences may be made to www.chan­dlers­fu­neral. com.

The fam­ily would like to ex­press their grat­i­tude to Dr. Tim Wood­ford for his com­pas­sion­ate and ex­cel­lent care dur­ing Allen’s ill­ness. Also, a deep thank you is ex­tended to the nurs­ing staff at Queens Gen­eral Hospi­tal who pro­vided exemplary care to Allen over the past days.
