Edward Albert ‘Ted’ Allan
Sept. 8, 1930 – June 11, 2016
A true “gentleman” has left us. Ted Allan of Nelson, B.C. passed peacefully into rest on Sat., June 11, 2016 with his wife, Carol, of 55 years at his side.
He was the beloved Dad to Paul (Julie) Allan, and dear Grandpa to Lakeisha, Melina, and Katia.
He will be remembered for his sense of humour and his accomplishments. He ended his long career at The Ottawa Citizen as director of human resources and labour relations. During that time, one of the highlights was as a delegate to the Commonwealth Press Union Conference in Harare, Zimbabwe in 1988.
Ted loved his farm, and the lessons he learned there in Mountain Township for 25 years. He then moved to other mountains in Nelson for his retirement, and loved it there also.
“Uncle Teddy” will be fondly remembered by Romany, Mike, Jade, and Ginger Oseki of Nelson, as well by Abbie Allan; his niece, Justine, and his nephew, Marc (Rebecca), and their children — Hadon and Paige.
There will be no funeral by request. Family and friends will gather for a Celebration of Life in September at the Nelson United Church. Details will follow at a later date.
In memory of Ted, donations to the Alzheimer Society of BC or a charity of your choice would be gratefully appreciated by the family.

“We will polish up the memory chest and enjoy again the happy days we spent together.”
