It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the passing of ALLEN CLARKE at the age of 60 years. He was born on May 5, 1957 and raised in Lethbridge.

Allen passed away suddenly on December 2, 2017 at this home with his family by his side. Our beloved son, father, papa, brother, uncle, partner and dear friend will always be remembered.

Allen is predeceased by his mother Lois Clarke and survived by his father Ronald, son Cody (Ivory, Phoenix and Xander) son Kyle (Paige and Etnee), partner Launa (Lulu), brother Ron (Nancy and Terri), sister Lisa Lutz (Darren, Keanna and Tori), brother Jim (Deb and Miyah) and many close and cherished friends.

Allen was a proud man and affected many in a positive way. Anyone who knew “Big Al” knew about his love of cars, his need for speed and tinkering in his garage. He owned a transport company called “Greg’s Transport” which he purchased on December 1, 1980 and lived by the motto “my customers were always my friends, and this truck will stop at nothing to make them my first priority.” Allen had a passion for hunting and never missed a season; many will say he needed to perfect that “third gear sneak.” Among all these affections, his heart was, and will still remain with his family cabin at Duck Lake, MT where he spent most of his time with the ones he loved.

At the request of Allen, no formal service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alberta Children’s Hospital, 2888 Shaganappi Trail N.W., Calgary, AB T3B 6A8, per Allen’s choice of charity.

The family wants to thank everyone for their kind words, thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

To all those who knew Big Al – “Well I S’pose!”
