    I was reacquainted with Al at Southland Transportation, driving the school bus. I worked with Al at Telus and curled in the same league. Al was kind and thoughtful man, always cheerful and respectful of others. He will be missed.

    Dear family of Allen,

    My sincere condolences.
    I was Allen’s direct colleague from September until December for Centennial High School. Allen, Brittanie and I were always chatting at the school while waiting for our students. I loved talking to Allen, he was a fun guy, always in for a joke.
    And at the bus yard we always waved at each other when I was driving onto the yard in the morning or leaving at the end of the day.
    His bus is still parked in the same stall and I just have to look every time I pass his bus and then I smile and think of Allen.

  31. Dear Jenny, I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved Allen. How truly sad for you, Janel and Frank and all who knew and loved him. Although I never knew Allen beyond a casual meeting at many choir events, knowing the strength of your character and the happy spunky young girl Janel was throughout our choir days I can only imagine what a wonderful husband and father Allen was. Reading the various condolences on-line definitely confirm this to be true. My deepest sympathies. May the sweet memories of a great husband, father, son, brother and friend slowly mend the hole left in your heart today.
