ALLCORN, Sidney Leslie - Early in the morning on February 11, 2017, at the Madonna Care Centre in Orleans, Ontario, Sid took his last breath and left this world without pain or regret.

Born in Montreal (June 11, 1935) to Philip Leslie and Mary Elizabeth (nee Atkins)

The family later moved to Belleville where Sid spent twenty-five years as a teacher and guidance counsellor at Centennial Secondary School. Of his time at Centennial, he was most proud of his work to found the Ontario Peer Helpers Association.

Sid is predeceased by his wife Phyllis Isobel (nee Bender) Allcorn, with whom he raised a family in Corbyville and who left this Earth far too young in 1992 at the age of 52, and his sister Gwendoline Mackie of Burlington.

Sid will be dearly missed by his sister Elizabeth Johnson of Port Dover, his children Jennifer and John, their spouses Stephen and Felicity, and his grandchildren: Brendan, Aidan, Tabitha, Rowan and Paige.

Sid loved his grandchildren and took delight in the accomplishments of his growing family. Sid loved life and was always eager for whatever next adventure sparked his interest. He was less interested in travelling the world as he was the community around him, serving it as a member of several volunteer organisations and service clubs.

After retirement from teaching he wrote his own books and hand crafted doll houses and lawn furniture. Over the past twelve years Sid struggled stoically with Parkinson's Disease. He did not give into anger or despair, and did not focus on his limitations, but rather in enjoying to the fullest the activities left to him, be it a meal, reading a western, watching a good movie, or listening to music.

His final resting place is at Corbyville, next to his beloved Phyllis. A celebration of Sid's life is planned at 1:00 PM on Saturday, March 4, 2017, at the River Inn, Corbyville, 79 River Road. Friends and family are invited to come and share memories and raise a glass to Sid.
