Allen Albert Hammerlindl
March 20, 1922 – August 9, 2012
Allen passed away peacefully on Thursday August 9th, 2012 at St. Paul’s Hospital at the age of 90. Allen is predeceased by his parents Joseph and Margaret Hammerlindl, brothers Harold and Jim Hammerlindl, great grandson Gage Smith and nephew Noel Hammerlindl.

Allen was born in Eatonia, SK and raised in Mantario, SK where he lived for 84 years before moving to Saskatoon. Allen and Kay lived a peaceful rural Saskatchewan life where they operated the Hammerlindl garage. Allen loved the business and enjoyed people. He was the happiest when he worked at the garage, serving the community for decades. He enjoyed curling bonspiels, square dancing, sports days, road trips (especially taking his grandkids to the Medicine Hat rodeo), traveling to Hawaii and Victoria, BC. Allen was an active member in the Mantario community serving as councilor and mayor for several years, and on the hall board and curling executive. He will be missed by the entire community and family. At Allen’s request there will be no funeral; interment will follow at a later date. Arrangements are entrusted to Acadia-McKagues Funeral Centre 955-1600.

My sympathy to Aunt Kay and all the family. My brother, Glen' s description of Uncle Allen talking with a cigarette on his lip brought a smile to me. What I remember is his ability to tell a good story which seems to be a family trait of his siblings.

Nancy and I saw Allen the Tuesday just before he passed away. We were glad to have that one last visit. The strongest memories that I have of Allen go back to the days when he was behind the counter in the garage. As a boy in the 1950's, I marvelled at how he could talk with his cigarette dangling from his lip. I hope Allen appreciated the support he got from his family. Appreciating what others do for us isn't always long suit for some of us Hammerlindls.
