July 18, 1937 - June 6, 2021

Our family announces with sadness, the passing of Allan at the Goodwin Lodge Personal Care Home, Teulon, Manitoba.
He is survived by his wife Dale, of 56 years; three children, Brian (Sheila) Piper and Hudson, Ainslee and Ben, Noreen and Connor, Warren (Bev) Drea and Kylee; two brothers, Lance (Rosemarie), Lorne (Merle) and their families. Two sisters-in-law, Denise and Laura (Bob) and their families.
Allan worked in the construction industry for 50 years. Any job he did, he did well, right down to making "jams and jellies" in "his" kitchen upon retirement. His favourite sayings when putting on his work boots were about his daughter Nor "I have to buy my girl a dress" and when snow started to fall those were "Pennies from Heaven". We enjoyed trips to the casino, he often won more than me so he became my A.T.M. machine. Our camping trips with family and friends left us with many happy memories, also the card games around our kitchen table.
Our heartfelt thanks, go out to all the Home Care workers who came and went while he was still at home, and the Goodwin Lodge staff, you all treated him with kindness and compassion making a rocky time in our lives just a little smoother.
There was no formal service and a private family gathering has already been held.
Allan was "King of the Road" so he knew that the final road would be paved.
