Obituary for Allan Reed

Eden’s Funeral Home
Allan Reed left us quietly and peacefully in his sleep in the early morning of Feb. 9, 2022, with his loving wife, Sandra, by his side.

He is also survived by his daughter, Linda Mckinnon (Donald); grandchildren Douglas Mckinnon (Josee), their children Colson and Gwendolyn; granddaughter KaSandra McKinnon; brother Roy Reed (Diana) and sister Ruth Campbell (Bill); plus numerous nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his parents, Mary and Jim Reed, and his sister Jean Negenman (Joe).

Allan was born Aug. 19, 1936. He was raised on the family farm and lived there most of his life.

At an early age his exceptional skill working with his hands became evident. He became a brilliant mechanic and welder and loved to spend time in his shop repairing, improving and inventing things. He often stated that he never ever regretted his lifestyle and was proud to be a farmer.

He married Sandra Moritz in 1973 and they worked and played and enjoyed their time being together for nearly 49 years.

They raised their daughter, Linda, on the farm and after she graduated high school and left home, the two of them travelled extensively and also spent many delightful winters in Arizona.

He was known for his infectious laugh, his determination, integrity, kindness, and his ability to fix and improve anything. He always seemed to have a reason to smile.

Allan loved being surrounded by family and friends. He enjoyed curling, bowling, golf and riding his bike. He learned how to barbecue a mean prime rib and was often asked to use this skill.

One of the best decisions he made was joining a group of like-minded individuals and helping form and grow the Heritage Acres Farm Museum, where he spent many a happy hour over the last 30-plus years.

He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He will be missed.

A celebration of his life will be held at a later time.

Those who wish, memorial donations may be made to Heritage Acres Farm Museum, PO Box 2496, Pincher Creek, AB, T0K 1W0.
