Stanley Herbert Allen
January 20, 1946 — September 9, 2013
It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of our husband, dad, and grandpa,
Stanley Herbert Allen, on Sept.9, 2013. He passed away peacefully, in Vernon Jubilee Hospital, with his family by his side, after a battle with leukemia.
Stan was born in Enderby, BC, but raised in Vernon, on Jan.20, 1946, to Bert and Bertha Allen. He was the oldest of four siblings and also the last to survive. Predeceased by both parents, his sister Mona, and brothers Gerald and Bruce.
Stan will be forever missed by his wife of forty six years, Marilyn, his son Kerry (Lorraine), and daughter Kim (Carl) Vardon. He also leaves behind his precious grandchildren, Matthew, Melissa, Hayden and Paige, and sister in laws, Joan, Marney, Judy, and brother in law Ron Bradley, and his nieces and nephews.
For thirty four years Stan worked at Tolko Industries in Lavington. He took great pride in his job and was well respected by all. He was very fortunate in that his work gave him the opportunity to spend ‘each day in the forest, the place he loved to be.
Stan was a true outdoors man whose passion was to hunt, fish, hike, and drive the back country roads. He had been president of the Fish & Game Club for a number of years.
First and foremost in Stan’s heart were his grandkids. If he wasn’t out in the wilderness, he could be found at the baseball field, the hockey rink or the dance studio standing proud watching the apples of his eyes. We love you GPa.
Stanley will be sorely missed by many a hunting partner and by all who loved and knew him.
Thank you to Dr. Arnold and staff for all your care and support. Thank you also to the great nurses in emergency and the 2nd floor of the Vernon Hospital.
As per Dad’s request there will be no service. If you wish, please make a donation to
