From: Jennifer Jacula
Relation: Acquaintance

My condolences to Allan’s family. Allan was a great supporter of youth in the poultry show hobby, and when he found out he was sick, he donated all of his trophies to the Vermilion Fair Poultry Show to be used for our Junior Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion prizes. From now on, we will have the trophies engraved as the “Allan Lakusta Memorial Award” so that we can remember his generous contribution to our young poultry hobbyists.

Our deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear husband and father Allan 🙂

From: Peter Reid
Relation: Worked with him for years at Ecan

I met Allan at age of 17 when I moved to Alberta for work, he always spoke highly of his family and encouraged me from the start to be the same with mine because without family you have nothing he said. I would like to pass his family my deepest condolences.

From: Bruce Pattison
Relation: Al was the safety trainer at Ecan

I received most of my oilfield training from Al at Ecan and heard a great number of his stories. One that has always stuck with me is of having a dinosaur named after him something I at first thought to be a slight stretch but sure enough there is one named for Al. http://nationalpost.com/news/canada/new-quarter-features-glow-in-the-dark-alberta-dinosaur/wcm/f093ca46-2286-4381-8fd3-73293f679cf5 Al was an excellent teacher and will be missed.

So sorry for your loss Allan was a great guy. He will be missed but not forgotten .

From: Walter Czuroski
Relation: Work Colleague

To the Family of Allan Lakusta, I am very sorry for your loss and also to lose a good friend. I worked with Al at E-Can for 20 some years and will miss his stories.

From: Ron and Sylvia Bodnar
Relation: My (Ron's) second cousin

Pauline and Family:
We were surprised and saddened to hear of the passing of Allan at such a young age. Be strong, and hold on to the fact that he is at peace and in God’s hand.
