Just seeing this now, for the first time. I hired Allan in 1980, as a computer programmer, at an engineering firm in Edmonton. Not long after his first day of work, his father visited, and personally thanked me for hiring his son, which surprised and touched me. Even then, he was talking about returning to St. Kitts.

So sad!

Loretta Pascal

Am overwhelme with sadness. Your beautiful soul touched so many lives with your love and kindness. You will be truly missed. My condolences to the family.

There are truly no words to take away sadness when you lose a member of your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time

Pennies, as we affectionately called him, was a GOOD MAN…a friend since sixth form at BHS; an outstanding BHS athlete; an outstanding student, no doubt from birth; a decent and respectable person in every way. Put simply…Pennies was a GOOD MAN.

Though I knew he was ailing, I am nonetheless stunned and deeply saddened by his passing. I will his calm demeanor; insights and advice on endless topics; many moments of deep, genuine laughter especially about our days at BHS.

Thank you Pennies for being my friend, godfather to my daughter Arienne and overall, for being YOU.

Until we meet again, blood, and pick up where we left off…Rest In Eternal Peace!

Condolences to the family from Taerani, Arienne and me.

So sorry to learn of the passing of Allan.
I’ve known Allan for many years. In fact, he was one of my geography students in the Fifth Form at the Basseterre High School back in the early 70’s. Back then, he was quiet and every once in a while out of the blue, would ask an unexpected question that would generate a class discussion. Soon after, he left for Canada and I left teaching at BHS. Years later I returned to St. Kitts, inquired about his whereabouts thinking he was in Canada and was surprised to learn he was back home running McPennies. I visited his office almost on every visit since. There was never enough time but he would always say “wait, man you can’t leave so soon” and would spend a few minutes updating me on what transpired since he last saw me. I am also especially grateful to him for his moral support and excellent service he provided during the passing of my mother-in-law, sister-in-law and brother-in-law. In fact, he went above and beyond each time not only with a quality product but insisting the courier to deliver the copies to the church to be accepted only by either my wife or myself. Allan my friend you were a gentle spirit, a calm soul. I will miss you. Our condolence to his wife, children, father, grandchildren, siblings the extended family, and to all who mourn. May the ancestors welcome you home with open arms.

Allan, our neighbour at Taylor’s Range, St. Kitts. Forever in my memory as athletic, handsome, intelligent and leading his brothers by example.
My heartfelt sympathy to his family and relatives. May God comfort your hearts during this difficult time and may his soul rest in peace.

Trista Wattley

Allan it was really sad hearing of your departing, but knowing you are out of your pain is comforting. The tears came as you were one of the nicest man I came into contact with. From my friendship with your cousins Mercy & Verlyn you officially welcomed me as apart of you. Thanks for all the advice you gave, the straight face jokes I really enjoyed. To the Pennyfeather & Warner families I extend my condolences, stay strong and hold on to God during this difficult time.

Our friendship goes back to over fifty years and you were always there for me whenever I passed through Edmonton. We attended the BHS and were members of the SEA. My memories of our childhood days will always be cherish as a true friend. May your soul rest in eternal peace. My deepest sympathy to your entire family and may the grace of God bless your soul.

Nancy Wells

Allan was a gentle and kind soul and a loyal family man. I enjoyed knowing him through his uncle Richard. A loss to his family.

“Solace is what we must look for when the mind cannot bear the pain, the loss or the suffering that eventually touches every life and every endeavour; when longing does not come to fruition in a form we can recognize, when people we know and love disappear, when hope must take a different form than the one we have shaped for it.”
