Allan Ernest LAGORE


Allan Ernest

Mar 17, 1943 to July 7, 2013

Allan (Al) Lagore passed away peacefully after a 3 year struggle with physical and mental health difficulties. He will be remembered as a loving husband, father, brother, son and uncle. Al is survived by his wife Margaret, son Brad (Ken), mother Mabel, his younger sisters Darlene Doell (Larry), Netta Wigington (Don) and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins. Al was predeceased by his father (Ernest). Al touched the lives of countless people in his role as teacher; it was his passion and a profession he loved for 32 years when he retired in 1998. Even after retirement he continued teaching as a substitute until 2008 as much as his health and his RV travel plans with Margaret allowed. Former students were everywhere, and often thanked him for his support while they were his high school students or participants in after school teams of volleyball, basketball or track and field. Al was equally passionate about sports, and enjoyed playing hockey, baseball and in later years golfing became another passion for him. If ever you wanted to find Al, all you had to do was look on the golf course where you would see him paired with Bob Stewart (Stewie!) in a game or over a beer. Al was committed to his students development, and to his role as a national volleyball referee and (mentor) to many, many up and coming referees. His commitment to refereeing took him all over Alberta, and as far as Japan, a trip of a lifetime for Al. In his retirement, he and wife Margaret travelled extensively in their RV across Canada and the US to explore the sights that North America had to offer on the road. Their son Bradley often would fly to the nearest airport they were camped by to share in some of the sights and many fine memories were made. Per Allan’s wishes there will be no funeral but the family requests in lieu of flowers donations may be made in his name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Canadian Mental Health Association.
