Allan James

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Allan on December 10, 2011 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Allan was born in Pemberton on May 7, 1936 and is predeceased by his mother, Olive; father, Gordon and a brother, Bruce. He is survived by his beloved wife, Gail; his loving children, Allan and Jennifer; grandchildren: Frankie, Leah (Eric) and Alicia; also, his feline companion, Lily; as well as the rest of the Prendergast family.

Allan loved the outdoors and travelling, and his passion was car and motorcycle racing. During his struggle with cancer he was proudly inducted, on October 9th, into the ‘Greater Vancouver Motor Sport Pioneer Society’ Hall of Fame for oval racing.

Allan will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by his loving family and close friends for his kindness, generosity and his positive attitude to life.

Private family cremation. There will be an informal Celebration of Life, to be announced at a later date. Flowers gratefully declined. For those so desiring, donations in Al’s memory may be made to the B.C. Cancer Foundation.
