Allan Halliday 1932 — 2017

Allan Halliday

Longtime resident and business man Allan Halliday, passes away peacefully after a short illness, on October 27 surrounded by family. Allan moved to Kamloops in 1967 from Winnipeg with his wife Agnes and two children; Sheena and Allan, a few years after immigrating from Scotland. In 1968 he started (AB) Halliday Air Conditioning & Refrigeration with only one truck and a passion for problem solving. Halliday Refrigeration is still operated by his son. Allan’s passion for Scottish music led him to become a talented musician, spending hours playing and inspiring his children’s and grandchildren’s love for music. He enjoyed badminton and camping when time permitted and in his latter years, Allan enjoyed gardening and baking and time with family. Allan was known as the friendly but opinionated Scotsman who happily serviced Kamloops and surrounding areas for more than half his life.

Allan was predeceased by his wife Agnes (Gus) Halliday in 2016 and is survived by his sister Margaret Manson in Scotland, daughter Sheena Vivian (husband Paul), son Allan Halliday (wife Etta) and three grandchildren; Graeme Vivian, Laura Vivian and Braeden Halliday.

A private memorial will be held to celebrate Allan’s life on Sunday, November 12th.
