November 14, 1923 to July 24, 2015

It is with heavy hearts we announce Allan’s passing on Friday, July 24th.

Al is survived by his life partner of 31 years, Margaret McCoy, 3 children, Lynn Duncan (Gary Cogdale) of Tofield, AB, Jim Grant (Joanna) of Vernon, BC and Joanne Pavich (Philip) of Nakusp, BC. He is also survived by six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

He was a strong, calm force in the lives of his family. A perfect example of how one can weather the storm of life with dignity and persistence. His sense of humour and his respect for the people who helped him through his last couple of years never wavered.

Donations to Al’s memory may be made to The War Amps, Child Amputee Program. Cremation followed by a private Celebration of his Life will be determined at a later date.You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s on-line obituary @ Arrangements entrusted to ALTERNATIVES FUNERAL & CREMATION SERVICES ® Vernon 250-558-0866 & Armstrong 250-546-7237
