Allan E. Willis
Passed on June 6, 2021
July 18, 1937 – June 6, 2021 Our family announces with sadness, the passing of Allan at the Goodwin Lodge Personal Care Home, Teulon, Manitoba.
He is survived by his wife Dale of fifty-six years, three children; Brian (Sheila) Piper and Hudson, Ainslee and Ben, Noreen and Connor, Warren (Bev) Drea and Kylee, two brothers Lance (Rosemarie) Lorne (Merle) and their families. Two sisters-in-law Denise and Laura (Bob) and their families.
Allan worked in the construction industry for fifty years. Any job he did, he did, well, right down to making “jams and jellies” in “his” kitchen upon retirement. His favorite sayings when putting on his work boots were about his daughter Nor “I have to buy my girl a dress” and when snow started to fall those were “Pennies from Heaven”. We enjoyed trips to the casino, he often won more than me so he became my A.T.M. machine. Our camping trips with family and friends left us with many happy memories, also the card games around our kitchen table.
Our heartfelt thanks, go out to all the Homecare workers who came and went while he was still at home, and the Goodwin Lodge staff, you all treated him with kindness and compassion making a rocky time in our lives just a little smoother.
There was no formal service and a private family gathering has already been held. Allan was “King of the Road” so he knew that the final road would be paved.
