We Remember


March 11, 1940 — September 16, 2021

Allan was born on March 11, 1940, in Calgary, Alberta, and passed away on September 16, 2021, in Kelowna, British Columbia.

Allan’s early life was spent in Black Diamond and then Calgary where he went to school, upon completion of which he attended the University of Alberta, Calgary, and then the University of Calgary where he received B.Ed., B.A., and then M.Ed. degrees. Beginning in 1963 he taught with dedication under the auspices of the Calgary School Board after which he retired to Vancouver in 1993 where he resided until 2017, at which point he moved to Kelowna. While in Calgary Allan was an active and much appreciated member of Central United Church and while in Vancouver a faithful member of St. Andrew’s United Church and a strong supporter of the Gospel Mission.

Allan had a keen interest in and knowledge of European and North American history, something that revealed itself to anyone who traveled with him on journeys to the U.K., France, Germany, Austria, and Greece as well as on trips to various parts of Canada and the USA. He will be remembered for his lively piano playing at Christmas time, his passion for model trains, and his surprise gift-giving to his nephews and unexpected visits to his cousins, family members, and friends. Allan was a loyal family member, assisting everyone in need and will be sorely missed by all who knew him and his quiet ways. He is survived by his brother Barrie (Photini) McCullough of Kelowna; as well as his nephews Telamon (Emma) and Jason (Sepideh). He was predeceased by his parents: mother Nell in 1974 and father Hugh in 1984.

A special thanks is owed to members of Interior Health Authority and staff at Three Links Manor, who worked tirelessly to comfort Allan in his last few years.
