McAllister, Robert Edmund


It is with great sadness we say farewell to our adored Dad, Grandpa and Great Grandpa. Predeceased by Mavis, his wife and partner of 60 years, reunited. Survived by daughter Lynda – Tom, grandsons: Robert – Stacey, Cam, great grandsons, Harrison and Langston. Son Bill, Daughter Wendy – Mike, granddaughters Beth and Julia.

Athlete, hockey player, sportsman, fishing guide of Lake of the Woods, entrepreneur, home renovator, civic, volunteer, voracious reader and, lifetime learner. Proud of his Irish Heritage. A kind gentleman with strong quiet influence wherever he lived. So loved by his family and friends from the many chapters of his life. He will be missed. Trust was everything to Robert. His handshake alone, set a lifelong commitment. Of special importance to Dad were his many associations; Delta Upsilon Fraternity, Founding Member of the Winnipeg Masonic Lodge, Fraternal Order of Elks Winnipeg Lodge, Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce, Winnipeg Monarchs, Toronto Maple Leafs (invited for tryout), Winnipeg Squash and Racquet Club.

With gratitude to his Carrington House ‘family’ who added so much to his recent years.

May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

the rains fall soft upon your fields and,

until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
