January 1, 1929 – November 14, 2013
Allan died peacefully at Terraceview Lodge November 14, 2013, with family by his side.
Born in Prince George, B.C. to Moise and Ethel Dubeau, he lived his first 6 years in Finmore, B.C. He and his family moved to Terrace in 1935. Allan attended Kitsumkalum School and graduated as one of a class of four. He then pursued a degree in Pharmacy at U.B.C., graduating in 1951. Returning to Terrace, he worked at Terrace Drugs, eventually buying the business and later starting Lakelse Pharmacy. After many years as pharmacist and owner, in 1989 he sold Terrace Drugs to Northern Drugs where he worked for two years before enjoying many years of retirement.
Allan was an accomplished pianist and spent many weekends in his early years playing in bands and later entertaining friends and family with his musical talents. He was a long time member of the Masonic Fraternity and enjoyed many years playing slo-pitch in the B.C. Senior’s Games. He also enjoyed curling and bowling as well as quality time at his cabin at Lakelse Lake with family and friends.
He loved his many grandchildren and enjoyed spending time with them.
He was predeceased by his first wife Audrey and his brother Dick.
He is survived by his wife, Evelyn; sister-in-law Delcia, niece Gail & nephew Chris, sons Ben (Sue) and James and daughters Lauren and Yvonne (Dan); stepsons Terry (Pam), Kelly (Diane), Kevin (Deborah) and Glen (Ethel); grandchildren Lindsay (Lee), Matthew, Mallory, Eric, Ben, Marie, Daniel, Erica (Jeff), Kristine (Woody), Michelle (Sean)Angela (Ray), Keith, Megan, Brandon and Tyler; and seven great grandchildren.
