Obituary of Alan Wray Empringham
Empringham, Alan Wray
Passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 28, 2021 at Grand River Hospital – Freeport in his 93rd year. Survived by his loving family, wife Marie (Nee Atkinson) of nearly 60 years; children Sheila and Dave, Dorine and Jamie, Sylvia and Rod, David and Maria; seven grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and sister Jeanne Allin.
Predeceased by his parents William and Winnifred (nee Sibley) Empringham, brother-in-law Murray Allin and nephew Douglas Allin.
Alan was born June 27, 1929 in Whitchurch Township. He farmed all his life, taking over the family farm and then eventually moving to the Monkton area in 1972. He enjoyed working on the land and was able to fix anything; he often created his own equipment to make work easier.
Alan loved to tinker and read. He took up woodworking and made many pieces of furniture for the family once retired. He had a great sense of humour and loved a good joke. Alan loved to tow the camping trailer and he and Marie took many trips to different areas of the U.S.A and several trips to the East and West coasts of Canada. He will be dearly missed.
