ROBERT STANLEY ELMER ALLEN
January 25, 1937 – August 23, 2022
In loving memory of Robert Stanley Elmer Allen. Stan’s wish was to live out his life in his own home and that wish was granted. Stan passed away peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday, August 23, 2022 at the age of 85. Cherished father of Laurie (Michael) Addison, Robert Allen, Reuben (Sharon) Allen and Stacy (Mark) Ostland. He was a special Papa to Curtis (Josée) and Janelle Addison, Brendan and Brittany Allen, Macy, Ethan and Ashley Ostland. He will be missed by his sister-in-laws Betty Allen and Patricia Hembruff, his many nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. Stan was married to his loving wife, Jeanette (Hembruff) for 58 years, where they called Manitowaning their home. He was predeceased by his parents David and Ida (Glenn) Allen, his beloved siblings, Doris (Lloyd) Je ffkins, Harold Allen and Dorothy Perisiol. Stan was passionate about hunting, fishing, gardening, playing cards and marbles, but his greatest joy was his family. He sailed on the Great Lakes for 36 years and was proud to say he was a 2nd engineer. This was not an easy life but he never complained. He made the most of his time at home by spending it with his treasured family, friends, coaching minor hockey, volunteering as a firefighter and helping those less fortunate than himself. He had a big heart and a gentle nature. Forever missed, forever loved! A graveside service will be held on Friday, September 2, 2022 at 1 pm at the Hilly Grove Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to the Manitowaning Medical Clinic or a charity of your choice. Please share your thoughts, memories and photos at IslandFuneralHome.ca.
