CUNNEYWORTH, Allan Ronald November 8th, 1952 ­ April 12th, 2007 Allan passed away suddenly at Georgetown Hospital Thursday, April 12th, due to an aneurism, after declaring his undying love for his wife and soul-mate, Janet (Howard). Beloved father of Amanda Rae (Andrew Dolman) and his very special daughter AmberLee, he is also survived by his mother, Mary Angela (Oresky) and his brothers, Wayne Edgar and Robert George (Connie Mitchell), predeceased by his father, Ronald Henry Victor. Allan's entire existence was a journey of extremes, of action and reaction, alternating between pain and joy, abandonment and recovery, escapism and responsibility, but always a journey of adventure, love and humour. He drew amazing strength from his family and friends. Allan was proud, intelligent, cynical and genuinely thankful for all the gifts that were given to him. He sincerely tried to pay forward the blessings that he had received in his life. As a founder with his father-in-law, Allan Howard, of Al and Al's Cheese House at Snelgrove Auction, he carried the name on to his next business, Al and Al's Meats of Acton, Ontario. His customers will long remember Al's "Beware of Mongoose" sign and heart-stopping furry Jack-in-theBox. It's a credit to his diplomacy skills that he was never sued. Following in his father's footsteps, Al was a butcher by trade. He worked at Better Beef, now Cargill Meat Solutions, in Guelph since 2000, where his skills and his unique character won the respect, admiration and friendship of all personnel, labour and management alike. In his later years, Al renewed a childhood passion for pigeons and became one of the more colourful members of the Acton Pigeon Club, where he was known, forever and always, as Acton's best pigeon flyer. This club and his other honoured personal charity were focal points at the end of his life. Allan and his contagious laughter will be remembered fondly by all who knew him. Family and friends will be received at Blue Springs Funeral Home in Acton, Sunday 2:00-4:00 pm and Monday 2:00-4:00 and 7:00-9:00 pm. Funeral service will be at the Bethel Christian Reform Church Tuesday, April 17th, 2007 at 2:00 pm, with interment at Fairview Cemetery, Acton. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Acton Baptist Church or a charity of your choice.
