    Hugs to all your families during this difficult time. We spent many Sunday morning meetings with the James’ family. What a huge loss for family and friends. We will remember Allen and his good example for many years.

    I valued Allen as a friend. He will be greatly missed and fondly remembered. We always knew exactly where Allen stood. There was no wavering or turning back for Allen. A fine example of a Godly, honest and fair man.

    Our condolences to all the James familys’. It’s times like these that make one feel sad for not knowing my own cousins better than I have. Again my sympathies to all.

    We have very fond memories of Allen and Irene. They were very kind and helpful to the Drummond relatives for many years. Allen was always ready to help in any situation. A very Godly man and an exceptional example to all of us.
    Our loving condolences to Doreen and Allen’s family.

    We have good memories of Allen & Irene about 56 years ago in the Peace River Country when we were all newlyweds together, and the same with Doreen & Gordon when we were raising our young families.
    Thinking of you all these days.

    We are so sorry and shocked to hear the news about Allen. I worked with Allen for 2 years at Rosedale Elementary 1978-80. He was a patient, kind, respectful and quietly energetic and humorous person all of which were reflected in his interactions with both staff and students. We got to know Allen, Irene and family over the years, and appreciated the lawn mowing Allen, Terry, Tammie, and Shelly did. Our condolences to all family members.

    Thoughts are with you all. I appreciate the memories and will cherish the hugs. Very grateful to have gotten to know Allen a little better the last number of years at Glen valley.

    I would like to send my condolences for the loss of Allen, you will be in my thoughts and prayers at this sad time.
    Allen played a big part in my journey as an EA with the school district. In 1992, I became very ill, Allen was there for myself and John with so much support and care. After I came back to work he made sure it went well. I had the honour of knowing a man with a fair and very kind heart. May memories of him warm your hearts.
    Caring and love Susanne & John Hamlin

    Allen was my principal at Robertson Elementary when he was in charge of both the Primary building and the Intermediate building. Many a time we had great conversations about the students, the primary building ( there was just the 4 of us), children (our own and raising them), educational practices at the time and earlier practices, life in general. He was a great mentor, a great principal and a great colleague when in those days, principals were still part of the teaching cadre and not only Administrators.
    My condolences to your family and friends. He was a very special man and will be missed.

    Sending hugs and loving prayers of strength to you all. Allen always had a smile that made you smile. I have fond memories of hikes and gym time with the Barth and James families. Sometimes when I went to see gramma Barth I’d see Allen reading passages or singing to her. A kind, gentle soul with a big smile. He will be missed.
