Wednesday, March 27, 2019We would like to extend our condolences to Pearl and the entire family with the loss of a wonderful man. I used to cut Al’s hair for many years, along with Pearl. He always had great stories to share about his life and travels. I also remember the many times he was a shoulder to lean on. Or when I would bring my daughter along to Extendicare and he always had chocolate for her... Al will be missed dearly , and never forgotten .

Tuesday, March 19, 2019We extend our condolences to Pearl and family on the death of Al Connor. We met the Connor family when we lived in Truro NS and then resumed our friendship when we moved to Bridgewater in the early 70”s. We kept contact with Al and Pearl over the years and last visited with them in Port Hope. I shared at times from Al's “Trail Mix” at the Men's Breakfast Meetings at our church in Fredericton. I mainly shared about the gentle man, his smile, his love for the Lord and his positive attitude. Both Al and Pearl have been a major influence on us and we share in the family's grief at this sad time. John and Wanda Curtis Fredericton, NB

Monday, March 18, 2019Allan & I met in 1941 when my family moved to Galt, Ontario (now Cambridge). We were in the same grade 7 class at Central Public School. We continued in the same grades as we progressed through high school although Allan began univresity in 1947 while I, not a good student in those days, took two years to complete grade 13. Allan chose to enrol in a new course offered at McMaster called Recreation & Environment Planning. I enrolled in the same course one year later. Our lives followed a similar trajectory when Allan undertook studies at Western leading to a Master degree in geography while I commenced Master studies in entomology a year later at the same university. We remained close friends throughout those years. I was best man at Allan's wedding to Pearl in 1952 and he was best man at my wedding in 1953. Our lives then diverged. Allan & Pearl were called to serve as missionaries in India sponsored initially by the United Church and subsequently by the Baptist Church. After they moved to India, in 1954 if my memory is correct, we remained in touch by letter. I was devastated to be informed by Pearl that Allan had conrtracted poiio in their first summer in India. He would have died but for the expert care he received in an American missiionary hospital. They returned to Canada to complete his recovery, following which they returrned to India to pursue their religious calling. Very quickly, however, Allan came down with a post-polio syndrome which again forced them to return to Canada where they have lived for most of their remaining time. Allan's physical crippling was painful to watch, but his positive & up-lifting spirit was an inspiration to his family and friends. Despite the large and recurring challenges in their lives, Allan and Pearl had two children, Stephen & Rebekah, who are a testament to their parents' iives.
