William (Bill) Allan (1926 - 2015)

Bill passed away peacefully in his 89th year on Thursday, February 19, 2015 at the St. Anne's Veterans Hospital. The Head Nurse often referred to Bill as her "Juvenile Teenage Delinquent," while others called him Happy. Bill was a proud veteran serving his country during WWII (Navy) and later in Korea and the Sinai (Army). Bill was predeceased by his brother Bruce, sister Joan and survived by brothers George, Doug, Bob and sister Maureen. Loving father to Ken and Lori, father-in-law to Kathy and Tom, cherished grandfather to Meaghan, Mallory, Sean, Chris and Ryan and great-grandpa to Lucus, Nathan, Dahlia and Savanah. Dad's presence always filled the room wherever he went throughout his life and many journeys. He had a heart of gold as big as his hands. He will be sorely missed by family and friends, especially his long time shipmate Art Ingram whose friendship spanned almost 80 years, and those who knew him at the Royal Canadian Legion of which he was a proud and honoured member for many years. Bill you fought a brave and tireless battle and now is your time to rest and see all of those that have gone on before you, rest in peace and in Gods care, farewell comrade.
