Beloved spouse of Beverly Gibson.
Dear brother of Doreen Gomm (Art).
Father of Christine and Roy.
Predeceased by his parents, Henry and Emily Dormer, and by his siblings, Jack Dormer (Louise) and Joan Binkley (Norman).
Allan enjoyed life to the max, with a positive outlook on life.
His relationship with Christ was very important to him and, thus, he did not fear death.

After retirement, Allan and Bev had many travelling adventures. He also completed his PhD in Biblical Apologetics in 2010.
On being diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer, he received care at Lakeridge Health Oshawa in the Durham Regional Cancer Centre and in C-7.
Plus, he was thankful for the assistance from Veterans Affairs Canada, from Home and Community Care Central-East LHIN, and from Oak Ridges Hospice.
