Allen, Donald Norman, (Jan. 30, 2018)

It is with great sadness that the Allen family announces the passing of Donald Norman Allen. In the early hours of January 30th, Don passed peacefully in his sleep. An avid sportsman, Don played hockey for many years in Sarnia and the surrounding area, including games in the early 50’s with players such as Gordie Howe, Terry Sawchuk and Ted Lindsay. He was a member of the Sarnia Golf and Curling Club for most of his life and he forged many good memories there, including an ace on each par 3. He spent his entire career at Imperial Oil and was befriended by all he knew. Don was loved deeply by his wife Joyce (O’Neil) for 67 years, prior to her passing in 2015. Don will be missed by his sons, Jeff Allen (Sue) and Wayne Allen (Pam); as well as his grandchildren Brock, Carly, Amy, and Alicya. An open house will be held at Jeff Allen’s home in Bright’s Grove on Tuesday, February 6th from 3:00 p.m. Donations can be made in Don’s name to the Canadian Cancer Society.
