<div itemprop="description">It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Allan, our beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather on September 11th, 2016 at the age of 87. <br> <br>Lovingly remembered by his wife, Gwen of Sherwood Park, Alberta; sons, Harold (Bobbi) of Salmon Arm, B.C., Cliff (Brenda) of Sherwood Park, Alberta, daughter, Loreen of Sidney, B.C., seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild. He also leaves two brothers, Walter (Marie) and Donald (Dee), numerous nieces and nephews and countless friends. He was predeceased by his parents, six brothers, two sisters, one step-brother and two step-sisters. <br> <br>Allan was born and raised in Czar, Alberta, and was extremely proud of his Scandinavian heritage. In 1947 Allan moved to Slave Lake, Alberta to begin what was to be a forty-four year career in the lumber industry that he loved. He worked for Swanson Lumber Co. Ltd. until 1981. At that time the company was purchased by Canadian Forest Products Ltd. (Canfor). In 1982 Allan was transferred to the Canfor office in Grande Prairie and continued working there until 1990. From 1988 - 1990 he served as President of the Alberta Forest Products Association. Upon retiring, Allan and Gwen moved to Sherwood Park. <br> <br>Allan's family would like to thank the Strathcona Community Hospital, the Strathcona County Emergency Services, and the Emergency and Palliative Care Wards of the Grey Nun's Hospital. You are all our Earth angels. <br> <br>A Celebration of Allan's life will be held Monday, September 19th, 2016, 2:00 p.m. at Glenwood Funeral Home, 52356 Range Road 232, (across from the Salisbury Greenhouse), Sherwood Park, Alberta.
