BAP­TISTE, Al­lan Lloyd

Vancouver Sun - - OBITS -

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.
