November 21, 1935 – January 28, 2012

It is with much sadness that we announce

Mike McAllister’s passing on January 28, 2012.

Mike was born in Vancouver, British Columbia on November 21, 1935 and spent his youth in Ocean Falls, BC. He enjoyed his work and life immensely – scuba diving, swimming, playing and teaching tennis, and enjoying tai chi. Mike was a great snow and water skier, and enjoyed cycling through the mountains. Mike was very active in the AB Diabetic Association.

He loved and honoured his Lord.

Mike is predeceased by his infant daughter, Andrea, and his parents, Ira and Hilda. He was dearly loved by his wife of 48 years, Edith McAllister (Houde); his sons, Christopher (Susan) and Noel; daughters, Michelle (Greg) and Shauna; along with his seven cherished grandchildren.
