Denault AllanDENAULT, Allan James - (Retired GM Millwright) -

Surrounded by the love of his wife and devoted friends, after a valiant fight at Peterborough Regional Health Centre, Allan passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 19th, 2017, at 70 years of age.

Beloved husband, best friend, devoted partner in adventure, and the solid rock of Linda Denault (Turney-Phillips). Devoted stepdad of Joseph (Marie), Mark (Krista), and Daniel (Kayla), and dad of Todd and Kent. Cherished brother of Bob (Shirley), Raymond (Colleen), Sharon (Norman Griffith), and the late Gerry (Vina Denault-Schinkel).

Predeceased by his parents Eldemar and Florestine Denault (nee Jones).

Lovingly remembered for the good times by nieces, nephews, family, co-workers, friends, and Bro's.

Allan was born on August 10th, 1946 in Pembroke, Ontario. He, like his father, played hockey as a goaltender for the Pembroke Lumber Kings. He prided himself in being a 2nd generation "true red" Habs fan. There wasn't a sport he couldn't play and win at – golf, softball, pool, darts. He loved cars, ball caps, and anything to do with Harley Davidson motorcycles and rode with many different people through much of the U.S. and Canada. He was a cowboy with an iron horse.

Allan was a big man with a gruff exterior and a generous and soft heart. He didn't often let people into the space close to him, but when he did, they knew it. He touched many different people in many different ways, and tried to protect those he saw as vulnerable. He was unforgettable and larger than life. He lived, loved, and played as hard as he worked. He was proud of the work he did. He was loved deeply and will always remain in our hearts.

A Legion Service will be held at the Cathedral of St. Peter-in-Chains, 411 Reid Street, Peterborough on Saturday, February 25th at 1:45 p.m., followed by a Memorial Mass at the church at 2:00 p.m.

In memory of Al, donations to Diabetes Association, Canadian Liver Foundation, or Charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated by his family. Arrangements entrusted with Comstock-Kaye Life Celebration Centre.
