JULY 25, 1949 – MARCH 8, 2021
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Allan Robert William Allarie at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, BC. He was surrounded by his grieving family.
Allan was born and raised in Montreal where he enjoyed playing hockey, baseball and golf. He had fond memories working as a golf caddy in his teens and shared many stories of these times. After graduating high school, he worked as a customs broker for several years. He married the love of his life Catherine in 1969. Allan headed out West with his young family in 1976 in search of new opportunities. They settled in Quesnel, BC where Allan began a career at Cariboo Pulp and Paper where he worked for 34 years up until his retirement. He was highly regarded by his colleagues and made many friends. He continued to play hockey and golf and was a long-time member of Quesnel Golf Club. Allan moved to Kamloops with his wife Catherine in 2010 to enjoy his retirement. In Kamloops he enjoyed the many golf courses available and became an avid Pickleball player and member of the Kamloops Pickleball Club. A sports enthusiast Allan enjoyed watching his favourite teams on tv, the Montreal Canadiens and BC Lions. A caring and giving devout family man Allan enjoyed spending quality time with his family who he would do anything for.
Allan is survived by his loving wife of 52 years Catherine, sons Gregory (Dana) and Ian, granddaughters Jada and Evie, sister Christine (Bev), sisters-in-law Grace and Moira and many nieces, nephews and friends.
