Andrew Raymond Allan, 65, passed away Oct. 8, 2008, at home in Westminster, surrounded by his family.

Andy was born March 10, 1943, in Pittsburgh, to Andrew and Marjorie (Higby) Allan. The family moved to Glenwood Springs in 1954 after his father accepted a management position at Thompson Creek Mine.

Andy graduated from Glenwood Springs High School in 1961, and in recent years kept in close contact with his fellow classmates, organizing several reunions.

He is survived by his wife, Alice; his father; sister Marjorie (Lee) Kuhre of Gig Harbor, Wash.; son Andrew (Valerie) Allan of Brighton; stepsons Prescott (Cathy) Lillian of Pleasant Gap, Pa., and Peter (Janet) Lillian of Georgetown, Texas; two beloved nieces; and nine grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his mother.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to The Denver Hospice, 501 South Cherry St., Suite 700, Denver, CO 80246.

Interment will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 20, at Fort Logan National Cemetery, Area “A.”
