Peacefully after a lengthy illness, Allan Robert Melville passed away at the Misericordia Health Centre on Friday, August 14, 2020.
He is survived by his wife of 63 years Gail; his children Gary (Ellie) and Sandra (Gary); his grandchildren Sarah (Pierre), Patricia (Ben), Christopher, Skylar and Rylan; five great-grandchildren; and his sister Roberta Kary.
He was predeceased by his father Robert and his mother Mary.
Allan spent 39 years with the Manitoba Telephone System, retiring in 1990 as Staff Manager, Coe and Toll Standards. After retirement, he and Gail experienced many enjoyable winter trips to Palm Desert, California; Scottsdale, Arizona; and Fort Myers, Florida. But his favourite place was his cottage at Star Lake in the Whiteshell that he and his father built together in 1951. Many lasting memories were made there with family and friends.
At Allan’s request and respecting his wishes, there will be no formal service.
