Larry Douglas Allen
Larry Allen of Moncton passed away unexpectantly at his home on Monday, September 10, 2018. Born in Moncton, he was the son of the late Lorne and Theresa (Bannister) Allen.
Larry spent the majority of his working career as a dedicated firefighter in Moncton for over 34 years where he retired as a Captain. He was an avid baseball fan who also enjoyed Stock Car Racing and Nascar. Yard sales and auctions were always a draw for Larry, loving a good bargain and collecting, he could often be found around town searching for new treasure. As Larry would say, it was "the thrill of the hunt!". However, the highlight of his days was watching his grandchildren participate in baseball, football, basketball, dance and several other activities.
He will be dearly missed by his loving wife, Mary (Eagles) Allen; his amazing children Marla Gaylord (Steve) and Michael Allen (Danielle Johnstone); his beloved grandchildren Connor Allen, Casey Gaylord, Riley Allen and Audrey Gaylord; his brother Kevin Allen; sisters Trudy Allen and Janice Carey (Gary); as well as several nieces and nephews, especially his cherished nephew, Jeffrey Carey.
The family will be receiving relatives and friends at Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Rd., Riverview (869-2007) on Thursday from 7:00 -9:00pm. A funeral service will take place at the funeral home on Friday, September 14, at 2:00pm with Rev. David Eagles officiating. Donations can be made in Larry’s memory to Mountain View United Church or a memorial of the donor’s choice. Online condolences may be expressed at www.cobbsfuneralhome.ca
