It is with heavy hearts that the family of Allan Dale (Skinny) announce his passing after a courageous battle with cancer. Skinny passed away peacefully on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2015 with family and friends by his side in Duncan, B.C.
Predeceased by his father Andrew (Wally) in 1995, mother Marion (nee Nelson) in 2011 and sister Mavis (Smith) in 2014. Survived by his son Ron-Allan in Calgary, brothers Ron (Diana), Melvin (Allison), Dan (Marja), sisters Gail (Syd), Jean (Harold), brother in law Barry and Auntie Inez. As well as numerous nieces and nephews and a truly amazing group of friends. Skinny was not a materialistic man but if wealth was measured in the quality and quantity of friendships, he would have been a rich man. His quick wit and infectious laugh will be missed by many.
Celebration of Life for Skinny (Allan) Thistlethwaite will be held @ 2pm on Saturday June 18, 2016 @ the residence of Ron & Sherrie Thistlethwaite 8973 Chemainus Rd., Chemainus, BC.
Safe Journey Uncle Skinny.
Love Your Family.
