He will be sorely missed by many nieces, nephews, neighbours and friends.

Allen loved spending time camping, ice fishing, ATVing and snowmobiling. Above all else playing the guitar was his favourite passion of all. A hot rodder at heart, he loved his formula Trans-Am that he restored himself. He always went on Sunday tours so he could show it off, while blasting John Mellancamp's Hurt So Good. That CD never left the player. Allen was a skilled autobody painter and Auto Tech, always shiny and finished to perfection. Allen made sure that he had time for everyone, helping fix cars or equipment, anyone in need of a Mechanic, Bone was there! Allen loved spending time with his family, he especially loved his grandchildren, whether teasing or assisting with homework! He was the best Poppa in the world.

Visitation will be held at the Simpson Funeral Home, Gore Bay on Monday, December 11, 2023

Cremation to follow.

We can all hear your voice in our heads as clear as day.
Always teasing us in your childlike way,
Calling us Goobers or Dip It!
Or how "might as well stay for another"
just rolled off your tongue so effortlessly,
We will miss the "smell ya's later"s,
"talk at ya's after"s
and especially all of the "ya but"s.

You loved your car,
You loved your guitar
Even from heaven we hear you from afar.
Burn some rubber and strum us another!

We love you, you were the very best husband, Father, Poppa and Friend.
