DUNHAM, Allan [Al]
December 7, 1956 – 21 October 2020
We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Al On October 21, 2020 in Kamloops, B.C. at the age of 63.
Al grew up in Calgary, Alberta, before moving to Kamloops, B.C. and joined the C.N. Rail as Conductor.
Al is survived by his Mother, Julie Dunham of Burnaby, B.C., Sister’s Darlene Andrichuk & Myrna Arychuk both of Chilliwack, B.C. 2 Nieces Nadine & Natalie, 4 Great Nieces Amanda, Tiana, Annabelle & Farrah, 1 Great Great Niece Brooke and 1 Great Great Nephew Logan. Cousin Candace [Patrick] Donovan and Al’s best friends Rod Hrechka, of Kamloops and Craig [Brenda] McDonald of Regina, SK. Jessica Hrechka, Brett & Heather Arcand, Suzanne & Sam Strande.
Al died just as he lived, he wrote his own rules.
Al took fashion cues from NO ONE – his signature every day look was all his: black [sometimes grey] label elastic waist shorts & sometimes a T-shirt designed by the fashion house of “Old Navy” oh and at times jogging pants –
Al will be laid to rest in the “Spring of 2021” in Vegreville, Alberta near his Grandmother Anna Kostek who he adored. [tba]
Message from Al:
I give you this one thought to keep –
I am with you still – I do not sleep, [absolutely correct]
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain,
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night,
Do not think of me as gone – I am still with you – in each dawn
Thank You to Dr. Montalbetti, Dr. Proctor, Dr. MacDonald & Dr. Takahashi Staff @ the Cancer Clinic, Staff @ Interior Health, Manshadi Pharmacy, Marjorie Willoughby Hospice, Royal Inland Hospital, together with Staff @ Chartwell Residences for all the extra help with Al’s care.
Donations in Al’s memory may be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice, 72 Whiteshield Cresc. Kamloops.
