We Remember

NELSON, Allen Wesley

August 24, 1955 — May 14, 2024

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Allen Nelson on May 14, 2024, in Kelowna, BC, at the age of 68. Born on August 24, 1955, in Rutland, BC, Allen was a lifelong resident and a proud Rutland boy.

Allen is survived by his sisters, Dorothy and Fern, his brother, Carl, and numerous extended family members. He was predeceased by his parents, Evelyn and Raymond, as well as his siblings, June, Bernie, and Sharon.

As the fifth of seven children, Allen cherished his roots and the outdoors, enjoying camping, hunting, fishing, and especially golfing. He was known for his love of Friday night beers and his remarkable positivity, which greatly supported him through his cancer treatments. Allen dedicated over 30 years to Crown Zellerbach, bringing joy to those around him with his humour, sayings, and mannerisms. He was a bright and well-read individual, with a deep love for history.

Allen did not wish for a formal service. Instead, we invite you to remember him in your own way. He was beloved in life and will be fondly remembered in death.
