Obituary of Allan Hartley Nordin
Allan Hartley Nordin
(May 10, 1938 - September 14, 2021)
Allan was born in Camrose, Alberta to Glen and Ruth Nordin. As a boy he enjoyed the farm life with his sister Marlene and brother Don. He liked to hunt and trap in the river valley and help his dad on the farm.
On December 28 1956 he and Margaret Sutton went on their first date and were married on June 9 1958. He worked various jobs at the Grain Elevator and Stelco but his desire was always to be a farmer. They happily purchased and moved into their home in 1966, a beautiful farm in New Norway, Alberta across the valley from the farm he grew up, and he and Marg raised their four boys there.
Allan was involved with the Christian Church and the Cornerstone Christian School, and was always there to help friends and family with anything that he could. The most important things to him were Faith in Christ, family and friends. He enjoyed the time he spent with his kids, and loved to share in all their life experiences. He especially loved having everyone together for Christmas and he took the opportunity every year to share the true meaning of that special day.He always took time to spend with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and was so proud of each of them. He was a warm and generous man who was well liked in the community and will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
On September 14th, 2021 Jesus came and took him home to be with Margaret and his parents once again. Left to cherish his memory are his children Jim (Grace) of New Norway, Kevin (Janet) of Red Deer, Brad (Denise) of Fort Saskatchewan, Ben (Jenna) of Leduc; twelve grandchildren; fourteen great-grandchildren; and siblings Marlene (Allan) Brager of Camrose, and Don (Clarice) Nordin of Camrose.
