Alan loved to spend time with his friends and wife Jeanne, who unfortunately passed away in February of 2008. He married his sweetheart, Jeanne, on October 29, 1943 in Winnipeg. He was an intelligent and caring person who made an impact on all who knew him. Alan was born October 5, 1921 in St. Boniface, Winnipeg and was also predeceased by his parents Bert and Louise Boulton, his two infant brothers, sisters Kathleen Hodgson, Patricia Jackson, and Shirley Scott. Alan had a passion for the social and charitable activities with the Shrine and Masonic organizations. He went to school at Earl Grey in Winnipeg and graduated from Kelvin High School. Alan served in the Canadian Armed Forces, stationed in Prince Edward Island during the Second World War as an air crew instructor. He returned to Winnipeg in 1945, and on the death of his father in 1949, became the President of the City Dray Company, and General Manager of Boulton Motors, positions that he held with pride until retirement in 1981. In 1946 Alan became a Master Mason in Beaver Lodge No.139 and in 1946 he became a 32 degree Mason of the Scottish Rite and went on to become a Noble in the Mystic Shrine of the Khartum Temple in 1958. He continued to engage with the Shrine, becoming a member of the Drum and Bugle Corps in 1959 and later became an Honorary Life Member. He was a Khartum Divan in 1971 and a Member of the Royal Order of Jesters Court No. 106. He was honored to be installed as Potentate of the Khartum Temple in 1979 and became the President of the Mid-West Shrine Association in 1991. His other interests and activities included being a lifetime member of the Lake George Fishing Club, of which he was president for 27 years. He was a member of Passawa and participated in the Old Crocks Invitational golf tournament for many years. He loved to golf, curl, fly his plane, and take the children waterskiing. The family had remained faithful residents of Winnipeg's south end and he and Jeanne spent many wonderful times at their family's cottage at Victoria Beach in the early part of their marriage. In 1957 they purchased their own cottage at Star Lake where they spent many wonderful seasons with family and friends. Jeanne and Al loved to travel and had many good times with friends and family in Mexico, California, Florida and destinations across Canada. Whether it was at their homes or the cottage, friends and family were always welcome and everyone knew that a good time was to be had with lots of laughter, food and fun. We will miss you Unc' our dear father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend. The family would like to express their appreciation to the staff of both the Boulton Retirement Community and the Riverview Health Centre A1 unit for the warm and compassionate care that they provided to Alan. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, August 12 at Neil Bardal Inc., 3030 Notre Dame Avenue, across from Brookside Cemetery. If friends so desire, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba in his memory. NEIL BARDAL INC. 204-949-2200
