Timothy Patrick Allen May 27, 1961 - February 17, 2021
It is with profound sadness we announce that our beloved Tim passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday morning. Tim is described by those who knew and loved him as being kind with a loving heart and a good sense of humour.
Predeceased by his mother, Doris Allen, he leaves to mourn his passing his partner, Penny, her children, Kathryn (Mitch), Stephen, and Grace (Travis), his daughter, Courtney Allen, his sisters, Joy (Steve) Hoffman, Deborah (Michael) Muir, brother, David Lavigne, step brother, David (Laura) Masur, stepsister, Joyanne (Bruce) Emmerson, his parents, Shirley and Stan Allen and his best friend and fishing buddy, Danny Nettleton (Fran), his nephews, David Jr Lavigne, Lance Lavigne, niece, Chelsea Young (Jaxxen) and grand niece Madelyn Wylie.
As a kid Tim became passionate about playing sports including hockey, baseball and golf. He carried that passion into his adult life and played baseball long into his twenties, he was a great team member and was always popular with his teammates. Golf was another sport that he played for years, he especially liked to play with Stan and Shirley when he went to visit them in Indio.
Tim loved nature and being outdoors whether it was camping, fishing or hunting. His true passion was fishing and he was very accomplished at it. He got excited anytime he could enjoy a day out on the water, whether it was on his boat or his best buddy, Danny’s. If you’re looking for a laugh Danny always has a good story from the many shenanigans they got up to on their adventures.
Tim also loved a good adventure and was always ready for a road trip to a favourite swimming spot on the river. Tim had his favourite "secret” spots for swimming and he once had both of his sisters, his niece, and his parents driving the backroads trying to find such a spot while following his timetable and directions. After 4x4’ing down the wrong road for about an hour it turned out it wasn’t the place he had in mind! When he finally got everyone to the right spot he had his parents, now in their eighties, take off their shoes and roll up their pants to cross a river and climb over a log, it made for a good laugh in the end. Tim always ran on his own time and it was always a guess if he would show up or not even if he said he would. Although it would frustrate his family, after thirty or so years they came to realize that's just how he rolled and it was always a better time when he was around.
Tim worked as a planer mechanic at Domans and then Western Forest Products for 30 years. He made many good friends at his job and worked along side his step siblings, David and Joyanne.
He always loved a good game of poker and will be missed by his poker buddies at their local game nights. He was known to bring some life to the game as well as for his bluffing, he didn’t always win!
Since he was young he always had a love for his dogs which were typically rescues that needed a forever home. His loyal girl “Hunter” was by his side right to the end. Tim was also particularly good with children; it was his kind and loving spirit that had a unique ability to have anyone feel special and loved in his presence. He held a special place in his heart for three little boys, Gage, Jack and Billy along with their mom who was a good friend to both Penny and Tim.
Tim was a fun loving guy that will be greatly missed by his friends and family.
