Allan accepted Jesus as Saviour as a child. He became first aid attendant for a saw mill, progressing to foreman, superintendent, manager and general manager in the industry. He met Maxine in Cultus Lake, B.C. With their sense of adventure, they didn’t like to stay in one place long, moving between Surrey, Squamish, Duncan, Salmon Arm, Chilliwack, Quesnel and Merritt, B.C., and retiring to Abbotsford, B.C. After Allan recommitted himself to the Lord while living in The Pas, Man., in 1972, he and Maxine were active in the local church, leading Bible studies and prayer groups. Allan was extremely proud and fiercely protective of his family. A good provider, Allan was a self-made man who worked hard. He led many to a saving relationship with Jesus. With his heart for service, Allan volunteered with the cancer agency and ran errands for people who were shut-in. A gifted tenor, he sang with the Vancouver Bach Choir. Since Maxine’s death, he longed for heaven.
