ALLAN PARKS of
SPECIAL PUBLIC EVENT
Dear fellow virtual truckers, Pegasus Logistics is proud to host a memorial drive in Allan Parks' honour, the late grandfather of our friend and Dispatcher, Dave K. (Urbn#9528). Please join us on Sunday, April 11th, 2021 as we drive in tribute to his life and legacy.
Tuesday, April 13th would mark my grandfathers 80th birthday, sadly he passed away on November 4th, 2020, after developing an inoperable brain-bleed.
He was the kind of soul who would give the shirt off his back. Way back when he was just a young man in rural Alberta, he started his farm where he raised cows, chickens, and pigs.
He spent many years working at the United Farmers outfit in Athabasca, Alberta, making a large enough impact that the entire community became familiar with him and his entire family.
As a young child, up until his passing, I spent many summers on the farm along side him, where he taught me how to farm and work on equipment. This inspired me to pursue my passion of mechanics. He was a humbled but strong man who would not say how much his family meant to him… I suppose having 13 brothers and sisters does that to you.
He is survived by his wife Edith, his daughters Rene and Holly, his grandchildren David, Jamie, Cody, Ryland, Emily, and Kara, his great-grandchildren Matthew, Kaitlyn, and Nevan.
It is important to me to do this so that I can let him know how much he has impacted my life and how much I miss him everyday. I appreciate everyone coming out and showing their support.
- Dave K.
