    Dear Priestley Family,

    I was shocked and saddened to hear of Allan’s passing. I am ever grateful to Allan for the guidance, skill, and professionalism he mentored me with early in my career. Certainly the people he knew and worked with are better for having known Allan and his contributions to engineering and the construction business are well remembered.

    My heartfelt condolences to you,

    Mike Kostashuk
