Obituary For Charlie James "Chuck" Allan

September 4, 1970 - August 22, 2022

It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of a beloved father, brother and friend, Chuck Allan.

Chuck was a devoted and loving father to Taylor Breanna Allan and brother to Brian Allan and children Alyssa and Kaelyn and Richard (Cheryl) Allan and children Waylon and Hayley. He was predeceased by his parents Gordon and Jean Allan.

Chuck was born and raised in the Brownfield area, near Coronation. His early years were devoted to farm life on the family farm. He graduated in 1988 and in 1990 went on to attended trade school as a motorcycle technician. While attending Fairview College, he met a young lady named Rhonda Hurlock. Their relationship blossomed and after many years together in January 2001 they welcomed a daughter, Taylor Breanna Allan. Taylor, Tater Tot to some, was the light of Chuck's life and he spent his lifetime devoted to her happiness. Over the years Chuck perfected his craft as a Heavy Duty Mechanic and worked at several oilfield related businesses in and around the Grande Prairie area.

His sudden passing is a shock to us all and he will be dearly missed by his daughter Taylor, his brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews as well as his extended Hurlock family.

A celebration of his life will be held Saturday September 10th at 11:00am in Grande Prairie at Bear Creek Funeral Home, 11802 99 Avenue. Interment to follow at a later date.

Donations can be made on Chuck's behalf to CNIB.

    I grew up with Chuck, and most of my childhood memories involve times with him. We still tell stories about Chuck from those day because of his relentless sense of adventure and humor, but what really set Chuch apart from everyone was his unwavering kindness, generosity and positivity. I am a better person for knowing Chuck. He influenced me and all of my friends in many ways that cannot be measured. I loved Chuck like a brother.

    Our condolences to you all. Taylor our hearts go out to you and know even though we only meant once it was a pleasure. Jeff thought the world of your dad after working with him out west, and when they spoke they had many laugh's. He will be so missed by all that had the honor of meeting him.

    I would like to express my sincere condolences, Chuck was truly a one of a kind man. He was a very important part of my life for many years growing up in Brownfield. He was always willing to help out and provided unending positive support whether he totally agreed with what was happening or not, he was always there. Chuck always had a joke ready to go, although usually inappropriate, it always lightened the mood. We have been separated by many miles for the past number of years, so our get togethers were only one or two times a year, not nearly enough. Chuck spoke fondly of Rhonda and Taylor every time we met up, and I am grateful he had such good people in his life to rely on. I spent a lot of time at Chuck's place growing up, and got to know Richard and Brian quite well, and I would like to express my condolences to them. Chuck truly was like a brother to me and will always be remembered, be sorely missed.

    Our heartfelt condolences to Richard, Brian, Taylor and everyone else who knew and loved Chuck. While we never really got to know him in his adult years, we would like to share some memories of him in his younger days. He always had that wonderful smile, and that mischievous twinkle in his eyes. One of those mischievous memories goes something like this. Toni was painting the trim on Gordie and Jean's house one summer when Chuck was still very young. They invited him in for some refreshment. He was painting with latex paint. In order to keep the brush from drying out he placed it in a small pail of water and went into the house. When he came back out to continue painting, he could not find the brush or pail. On checking around, he found Chuck merrily painting the side of his shiny bright red convertible in muted tones of black. Luckily, due to it being latex paint and the car having a good coat of polish, they managed to remove all of the errant paint with rags and warm soapy water. Chuck did not complain that he had to help clean it off. On another occasion when Chuck and Brian Selzler were quite young, the boys went out to check to the coop to check out Jean's newly purchased young chicks. Soon one of the older boys came in an told his mother that she had better go and check out what they were up to. Much to Jean's dismay she found them placing chicks on the side of an overturned barrel. They would then roll the barrel to see if the chicks could run fast enough to not fall off. Needless to say they could not, and quite a few met their fate under the barrel. Jean was not pleased. The two boys ended up emptying their piggy banks to pay herfor the damages. Lesson learned.... and no complaints from either of them. A final word for you, Chuck. As your father often said when camping, "Stay away from the fire", May you rest in peace in heaven instead. Toni and Chris Selzler
