Lawrence Ralph McAllister

Larry passed away peacefully in the Nelson Hospital, surrounded by his loved ones on Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at the age of 67 years, after his courageous fight with cancer.

Born to Ralph and Inez McAllister in Macleod, Alberta. Larry worked at the Trail Regional Hospital for twenty seven years, before retiring to Balfour. He enjoyed his time fishing and his greatest moment was catching the elusive 25 pound rainbow. He also enjoyed golfing and after each season threatened to sell his golf clubs. He was no threat to the seniors tour.

Larry is survived by his wife Bernadette, son Mark (Michelle) brothers Ken(Hope), Ron(Sharon), Bob(Tracy), Don and sisters Grace Wilson, Betty Harshenin, Lorraine (Neil) Hickman and best friend Rachel.

The family would like to thank Doctors Milde, Malpass and Shumacher and the nurses in Trail and Nelson for their excellent care of Larry. Thank you for the cards, prayers, support and dinners . Special thanks to Lisa (our angel in Trail), our very dear friends, caring neighbors and loving family for being there through our most difficult time.

Larry has requested that there be no service or flowers.
