Mr. Allan Livingstone Dickie
4 April, 1929 – 30 October, 2021
Allan passed away at the age of 92 on October 30th, 2021.
He is survived by his loving wife of 68 years Beverly, his son Glen, daughter, Diane (Dee Dee), son-in-law Michael Allan granddaughter, Taylor-Brooks Allen and Nephew, Jerry. Predeceased by his parents, Robert and Gwendolyn and sister, Elvira.
Allan was born and raised in Vancouver and he and Beverly attended Lord Bing High-school in the Point Gray area.
Allan met up with Beverly again at an HMC Discovery Dance where he attended as a Navy Cadet, courted for a time and then married. They recently celebrated their 68th year of marriage.
Alan had a varied career where he worked for Woodward’s downtown and the opening of the New Westminster location for approximately 10 years and then worked as the Western regional Manager for a hardware company venturing into a successful career in real estate thereafter.
In ALLAN’s leisure time he became aquatinted with Birch Bay Leisure Park. He and Beverly purchased their little piece of the pie there and he went on to serving the Park for two selected terms as the President of the Park. He loved the Bay and cared a lot about the residents of the Park as well as the upkeep of the Park itself. He and Beverly would often venture out in their golf cart at around 7pm speaking to many along their way in what they referred to as their midnight journey.
Allan will be dearly missed by his family and friends who recall him as being a loving and caring individual with a great sense of humour.
We will live on through our memories of him and we will celebrate his life at the First Memorial Funeral Chapel at 1:00pm on Friday, November 26th.

One of the many bonuses of marrying into the Hanson family was getting to know their wonderful next door neighbours – the Dickie family.
And I must say that you set some pretty high standards for what a neighbour could/should be!
I am very sorry to hear of Al’s passing, but I also celebrate the many years that you all were able to share together. I know he will be greatly missed, and my heart aches for you.

Al was president of Leisure Park when we bought in Birch Bay. Al and his wife Bev welcomed us in such a nice way. They helped us fall in love with our little piece of paradise especially our Friday nights! Condolences to the family. Rest in Peace Al.

To the Dickie family
Although, I only met Al a few times, I could see he was a kind and thoughtful man to all of his family. I remember, having Bev and Al over for Christmas dinner one year with their son Glen. I was struck with the beauty of how much love, after so many years, that Bev and Al shared with each other and could easily see that their love, respect and support for each other only grew deeper with each passing moment. My thoughts are with the Dickie family, and hopes for peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead, and above all loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.

My deepest condolences to losing such a wonderful man. I have so many memories of him from camping as a child to listening to all his great stories. I will miss him and visiting him. All my love to his loving wife and his family. Terry Stevens
