Allan HUBLEY

HUBLEY, Allan Murray

February 2, 1918 – November 26, 2010

Allan was born in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. He attended Nova Scotia Tech and Dalhousie to pursue a degree in engineering, but interrupted his studies to join the Royal Canadian Navy. He served as an officer on many vessels and as Chief Engineer on the minesweeper HMCS Georgian.

Following the war, Allan returned to school to complete a mechanical engineering degree. His career took him to Trois Rivieres, Quebec where he worked for Consolidated Paper Company. He served on the official board of St. Andrew’s United Church, and for many years was the Chairman of the Protestant School board of Three Rivers. In 1992 after consulting for many years, he and Alice retired to White Rock, British Columbia and lived there until their passing.

Alice (Foote) Hubley predeceased Allan in 1996. Allan leaves to mourn son John Murray (Karen), daughter Debbie (Rex) Coupland, grandchildren Tara (Steve) Lafond, Kerry Coupland, Devon (Tangraya) Coupland, and great grandchildren Delaney and Neala Lafond. Interment of his ashes will be in Mount Herman Cemetery, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia at a later date.

The family would like to thank all the caregivers Allan had over the years as well as all the staff at Peace Arch Hospice for their TLC in his final days. Sympathy may be expressed with a donation to White Rock Hospice.
