    Sincerest condolences on Allan’s passing. I was fortunate to meet Allan through L’Arche Calgary in recent years. He was such a lovely person and I enjoyed the couple of opportunities I had to spend some time with him prior to COVID. I recall Allan commenting quite matter of factly about his parents being in heaven and I pray that he he is with them now.

    My heartfelt condolences to Allan’s family and friends.
    I met Allan at Living Spirit United Church. He will be remembered as a friendly polite gentleman who loved to sing and play his guitar.
    Rest In Peace Allan.

    Sincere condolences. We’ve known Allan for many years, having met him through L’Arche. He was a lovely man, and a heck of a cribbage player. He was also a role model for many, including us, in terms of his faithfulness as a friend and also his work ethic. Allan was rightly proud of the work he did at Tim Horton’s. A good man. Rest In Peace, Allan.
