ALLEN C. HUFF
May 13, 1929 - November 28, 2019
He is survived by his wife Dorothy, children, Clyde and Marla, son-in-law Jeff, grandchildren, Kailey (Brian) and Shane (Katharine), great-grandchild Reid, brother Marvin, nieces and nephew, and close friend Hedy Mielke and her family.
Allen was proud to have grown up in the North End of Winnipeg. Shortly after he and Dorothy married, they moved to East Kildonan to raise their family. Allen was employed as a Winnipeg police officer for 34 years. He and Dorothy were married for 58 years and enjoyed spending time with their family, friends and neighbours - both at their home and cottage at Granite Lake. There were trips to Hawaii, Florida and Arizona that made the Winnipeg winters a little shorter. After he and Dorothy separated, Allen moved to Sarina Towers and later River Ridge. In his later years, he enjoyed spending time with Hedy playing dice and card games, taking drives in the country and walks in the park, and going to church.
His final six months were spent at Donwood Manor. The staff of River Ridge and Donwood Manor made Allen's final years enjoyable, despite his failing health, and he appreciated each person who assisted him to his final day.
Allen will be cremated and then laid to rest at Glen Eden Memorial Gardens on Main Street at a private service with family and close friends in early May 2020. As he requested be engraved on his burial stone the phrase "It is finally over", his long journey ends, but as he believed a new one begins, may it be one of peace and tranquility.

Clyde and Marla, You probably don’t remember me but we went to Elementary and Jr. High together and I just wanted to offer you all my condolences. I’m so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. Please know my condolences are with you during this very sad and difficult time. - Posted by: Wendy Hanson Zilli (School friend) on: Dec 08, 2019
Saddened to see that another good man has passed. Back in early 1950s I first met Al when he worked at Genser's furniture. He and his fellow workmen played baseball during lunch breaks close by my home. He later became a commrade of mine with the WPD.He was my influence in joining. Al was a fine man, and Police Officer. My condolences to all members of his family. Ron Truesdale (now living in Qualicum Beach,B.C. ) - Posted by: Ron Truesdale (Former WPD commrand....and friend for 65 yrs.) on: Dec 07, 2019
