(Nov 9,1954 – January 5, 2014)

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Gordon Ross Allan. Gord was predeceased by his father Robert Allan,(1985) nephew Connor Fennessy (2008) and very recently  Auntie Kay & cousin Wendy. Gord leaves to mourn his mother Eileen, brother Gary(Monique ), sisters Debra Penney(Tony), Lori Fennessy(Kevin), his daughter Raechel Murray(Scott), nephews Justin Allan & Chase Fennessy, nieces Casey Fennessy & Kara Bruno(Pat), great nephew Jake & great niece Elizabeth and his wonderful friend Melanie. He also leaves behind friends that he has made all across the country including, his long time good friend Bob Chmilar. Although Gord had been battling cancer since July 2012, his battle was going well. He was still extremely active at home and was no where near the end of his battle, when  an unexpected medical crisis suddenly took him from us. Cancer brought him a new outlook on life and he still had goals to fulfill before he was ready to quit. He never wanted sympathy and always maintained that he was just fine. He was a gentle giant with a big voice that couldn’t be ignored when he entered a room. He will be missed by many. We would like to thank the many Dr’s, Nurses & support staff at KGH,BCCA,VGH. The staff and volunteers at the Jeac C Barber Lodge  and the BC Ambulance Services for their help during Gords illness. Cremation with no service, will be followed by a private family celebration in the spring. Donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Arrangements in care of Everden Rust Funeral Services, (250)860-6440.
