"Allan is a very wonderful daddy, son, brother, cousin, nephew and grandson. He has left us with many memories. He will be missed by all. His humor and laughter will continue to bring smiles to all who love Allan. He and his dad were close and shared more than the same name, but had other similarities only a daddy could lovingly give and teach to his son.
"The love he had for his mommy was something that was totally out of this world and envied by many. His love for his fiancee, Patrisha, and son, Landon, was equally as great. He was a role model for his younger brother, Clint, and sister, Babes. Allan shared many great qualities with all his siblings and friends. Allan's large family and his circle of friends will all greatly miss his warm smile, soft loving eyes and his big bear hug. He went out of his way to make everyone very comfortable and accepted. His memory will be eternal. His love for family will be consistently felt," his family said.
