Obituary

Allan Pryce Andrew, 67, of Eckville, passed away, November 26, 2019 in comfort at the Red Deer Hospice surrounded by close family after a courageous battle with cancer.
Allan was born June 3, 1952 in Eckville to Pryce and Jessie (Malcolm) Andrew. He graduated from Eckville High School and went on to Red Deer College to obtain his master’s degree for an electrician. While attending college he was working for the Eckville Co-op hauling products to the farmers in the area. Once his schooling was complete he started his own business, Allan Andrew Electric.
In April of 79 he married his former partner Darlene (McLaren) Strembitsky in Eckville, and they went on to have three children. After legally separating from Darlene in November of 88, he continued on with his electrical company, which led him to the opportunity to work in Russia for many years as a general manager of a construction company. He retired in 2011 and spent his days tinkering with many different projects around the farm.
Allan loved anything with a motor, especially his Pontiac Firebird; you would find him many nights working in his shop to improve on something. He also had a passion for motorcycles. Summer he would be riding bikes in our beautiful back country, and the winter he enjoyed racing them on ice. He spent his free time camping, racing, watching nascar, and tinkering with his many toys
In April of 2012 he met Julie Dussault and they were married in June of 2018. They have done some wonderful traveling of the USA together.
Allan is survived by his wife Julie and children, Stacy Andrew (Derek) of Eckville, Craig Andrew (Whitney) of Sylvan Lake; four grandchildren, Kennedy, Emily, Ryder, & Everly; his sisters Faye (Leo) Carter of Innisfail, Jan Andrew of Red Deer & Shirley(Brian) Casey of Saanich BC, along with several cousins, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in passing by parents Pryce in 1984, Jessie 2003, and daughter Michelle 1983.
Allan was a loving father, husband, grandfather, and friend to everyone he met.
A celebration of life service will be held at the Eckville Community Center on December 17, 2019 at 2pm. Cremation entrusted to Rocky Mountain Crematorium, Rocky Mountain House, Alberta
In lieu of flowers donations may be made in memory of Allan to the Red Deer Hospice Society.

Jessi Campbell (Mandoli):
The love Julie & Allan shared was truly beautiful. After the passing of our Uncle Harvey we only hoped someone would take care of our sweet Aunty Julie and that man was Allan. Allan had a beautiful heart and his love for his family and Julie shined everyday. We send all our love to Allan’s children, their families and our Aunty Julie during this difficult time. Allan was an amazing man.
Sandra Daniel:
Thinking of all of you at this sad time. I was fortunate to get to know Allan through Julie. He was a wonderful, cheerful and kind man.
I always loved having a chat with him at the farm. He spoiled my horse Curry with dairy hay snacks daily and took great care of him--morning feeds and walking Curry in the aisle of the barn when it was too cold for him to go out.

I saw the love Allan had for Julie and the many fun things they did in the short time they had together. Allan was always game and never let much slow him down, he always had a twinkle in his eyes.

I'm honored to have known Allan and my heart aches for Julie, Stacy and Craig. My thoughts are with all of you, hold tight to the memories. Much love, Sandra

Offering our condolences to all Allan's family and friends. He will be sadly missed by everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him. In 2019 we meet Mark from Rimbey in Armadale Castle Scotland and the first person he asked about was Allan Andrew. Allan's friends were far and wide.
Many of the Andrew cousins and neighbors would meet at the Makiisen dug out for skating on Sunday afternoons all because Allan loved to get the tractor out and clean off the ice. I think he may have even dropped a tractor thru the ice once which didn't make Uncle Pryce very happy but luckily we managed to get the tractor out ready for thicker ice. Always enjoyed a ride to school or a bush party in one a Allan's fabulous cars.
