Obituary of Allan McLellan
Passed peacefully on December 29, 2022 at home in Franktown at the age of 92. Predeceased by his parents Earl McLellan & Jane Clarke (nee Moulton), as well as by his grandson Brock Dowdall in 2012. Allan leaves behind his beloved wife Judy McLellan (nee Ferguson) of 71 years; his children John McLellan (Irene), Catherine Dowdall (Donald), Roy McLellan (Deborah), James McLellan, and Charles McLellan (Sandi); as well as his grandchildren Angela McLellan (Derek), Billy McLellan (Mary Ellen), Shannon McLellan, Brad Dowdall (Chelsea), Robbie McLellan, Kimberly Cockins (Jeff), Edward McLellan (Samantha), and Daryl McLellan (Kelsey); and his great-grandchildren Emma & Leslie McLellan, Tatum & Blair Derbyshire, Alexander & Avery Dowdall, and Clara & Luke Cockins. He will be also be fondly remembered and missed by his siblings George McLellan (Kriss) and Gordon McLellan (Diane). Allan was the kind of man who could look at something and tell you exactly what needed to be done to fix it; he could put his hands to any piece of machinery and make it better than it had been. His passion was steam engines, and he was known for making machines from scratch; whether it was a mini-bailer or a rope maker. People would come from all over to tour the sheds and look at his collection of steam engines and other machines he’d built; he was even featured on a CTV program called Regional Contact where his work was showcased. Allan was an incredibly talented and intelligent man whose expertise and warm heart will be greatly missed more than words can ever express.
