Passed away peacefully on Monday, December 29, 2014 in Kelowna, BC. Allan is survived by his two sons, Chris (Karen) and Michael; his five grandchildren, Ben, Max, Rosa, Tyson and Tru. He is also survived by siblings, Phyllis, Lorri and Nadine. Allan was a gentle, ethical, humorous and patient man. Never one to take a back seat to life, he was an adventurous risk-taker and had many outrageous tales to tell, especially from his youth growing up in Summerland, BC, as an adult in Northern BC and two extended VW van tours through Europe, Africa and the Middle East. For 13 years he was co-owner of Fabbi Auto Parts in West Kelowna and enjoyed connecting with people over the parts counter. He was an avid hiker, cyclist, biker and was active in the Kelowna Folk Club and was the creator of the “Eclecticsans Electric” concert series. Thanks to the Apple Grove staff at Brandt’s Creek Mews, Karla’s Kare and the Chatsworth who were a great support in the last years of Allan’s life. Individual donations can be made in Allan’s memory to “Plan Canada” in lieu of flowers. He was generous, kind and loved by many. He will be greatly missed. A memorial service will be held at 3:00pm on Saturday, January 3rd, 2015 at Everden Rust Funeral Services, 1910 Windsor Rd, Kelowna. Arrangements in care or Everden Rust Funeral Services, (250) 860-6440.
