ALLORE, Peter Gerard - (February 27, 1950 - September 7, 2016) - It is with deepest sadness that we announce the passing of Peter Gerard Allore in Strathmore, Alberta on September 7, 2016 at the age of 66 years.
Peter was born in Peterborough, ON on February 27, 1950 to his proud parents, Rita and Frank Allore. Known by the nickname 'Tor' to his hometown buds, his early adult years were spent happily pursuing a freewheeling lifestyle that entailed working hard and socializing hard! In the summer of 1974, in search of the 'great-adventure', he mounted his trusty motorcycle and headed west to Alberta and a new life.
In Calgary, while working at Eaton's Canada, he met and married the love of his life, Darlene Warcomika. Eventually, they moved to Strathmore where they lovingly raised two beautiful daughters, Brandy and Amanda. Over the years, Peter's devotion to his family only deepened with the birth of his beloved grandchildren, Isabelle and Owen… two new kids to play with!
Apart from family and friends, Peter also had a soft spot in his heart for his cats and his motorcycles… he was always happy when both were purring! Peter was predeceased by his parents, Rita (nee Gabourie) and Frank Allore. He is survived by Darlene, his devoted wife of 35 years; daughters Brandy Allore of Beijing, China and Amanda Allore (Paul Craig) of Strathmore area; grandchildren Isabelle Craig and Owen Craig; sister Sharon O'Toole (Jim) of Exeter, ON; and brother Jack Allore of Calgary. In addition, he will be dearly missed by nieces Jennifer Allore (Wesley Balla), Patricia O'Toole-Terhune (Brian), and Chrissy Ewanchuk (Andrew); nephew Greg O'Toole (Genevieve); and many friends and acquaintances.
At Peter's request, no services are planned. Arrangements out of Strathmore, Alberta.
