April 16, 1949 – March 2, 2023
In loving memory ~
Allen, 73, of Courtenay BC passed away peacefully on March 2nd 2023. He was born April 16, 1949 in Kapuskasing, ON. Al is survived by his seven children and their spouses, grand-children, siblings, cousins and many family and friends. Moving with his family to Vancouver at a young age, Al spent his childhood camping, fishing and experiencing the outdoors with his three siblings.
Al found a love for technology in college while attending BCIT, completing a Bachelors of Science with Honors in Physics. He later went on to teach Computer Science there, eventually starting his own successful business to explore the technologies he was teaching.
Al provided his kids with the foundation of experience to do great things. He instilled in all of us that we are brilliant, and capable of excellence. Through his years of generosity, his children saw many parts of Desolation Sound by boat, many forests on Vancouver Island while camping, as well as helped them gain an intimate knowledge of Mt Washington through hiking and skiing. He gave everything to his kids that he could.
It is bewildering that moments of supreme sadness, such as the loss of Allen Walker, can provide the opportunity for profound love and community building, through the coming together of all those who loved him. An informal Memorial will be held on March 18th, 10am -12pm at the Fanny Bay Community Hall.
We miss you Al.
