BAPTISTE, Allan Lloyd
October 2, 1947 – October 3, 2018 Allan passed away peacefully on October 3, 2018. His goal was to be with us for his 71st birthday and we are blessed that he was. He enjoyed golf and cycling but raising his family was one of his greatest joys. He and his first wife Helen (Tom) had three sons Chad (Kim), Brent (Dianna) and Adam. They enjoyed many vacations and weekends with their friends and children at Black Mountain Ranch watching all their children grow-up together and developing lifelong friendships. As his family grew, getting together for family barbecues and celebrating the birthdays of his grandchildren Grace, Laina, Ben and Mason were events that Allan cherished. Allan was born in Vancouver and spent his entire working career as an electrician, mainly in the Greater Vancouver area. One of the positions he achieved was the Facilities Manager for both the BC Cancer Agency and the BC Cancer Research Centre. It was here where he met his wife, Emily and they married in 2001. Their life revolved around their dogs, Shamus (a yellow English Labrador) until 2008 and then Diva (an English Mastiff) until 2015. In the years just prior to Allan’s retirement in 2008, he discovered the world of ‘gaming’ and created a games room which was the envy of all who saw it. Allan enjoyed his life and friends and family and he will be missed by all. A special thanks to all the health care staff for their compassionate care through Allan’s journey. No service by request. Donations in memory of Allan may be made to RAPS (Regional Animal Protection Society) or the BCSPCA.
