It is with great sadness that the family of Allen Frank Huxley announces his sudden passing from this earth on April 12, 2020 at the age of 78-years-old.
Allen leaves behind many fond memories to be cherished by his wife of 54 years, Bernice (Harbors) and his four children: Christine (Mike) Kiemeny, Colleen (Todd) Wagner, Ken (Tammy Imbery), Don (Pat) and his seven grandchildren: Meagan, Terri, Mitchell, Tony, Amy, Alex and Adrianna.
Allen will also be remembered by his younger sisters, Lorraine (Gordon) Jacksteit, Eileen (Norman) Cowley and sister-in-law, Betty-Ann Voytechek.
Allen was predeceased by his parents Frank and Jean and his brother Harold.
He was the rock of our family who lived the best farmer’s life.
He grew up in the Ghost Pine area east of Three Hills and remained there to raise his family on the farm.
He purchased the farm in 1967 from the Moral’s while the rest of the land was inherited from his father, Frank.
Allen enjoyed playing catcher for the Ghost Pine men’s fastball team until his knees told him otherwise and loved playing cards with whoever wanted to play.
His sense of humour, love of family, friendships, kindness and generosity to all will live on in his family.
We hope that whoever he is now sharing his meals with remembers to bring money for groceries as he often teased his grandchildren when they stayed at the farm.
Many family and friends will remember his infectious smile often paired with a funny joke.
We won’t forget how happy he was making literally three more laps around the field compared to the older models in the newest combine, the 9790 Massey, during harvest.
Farming was something he loved from the beginning, never missing a season since he was little.
We will miss you and love you always.
