  1. Please accept our condolences to Rodney, Neil, Julie and Carol as well as his extended family. We had the pleasure of being with him and Jean at a milestone birthday at the Greensborough RSL. It was wonderful to see them both and they were in good health and enjoying life. Allen’s passing is the end of an era for our family as he was the last of my father’s (Ron McDonald) brothers and sisters. May Allen Rest In Peace.

  2. Dear Rodney, Neil, Julie, Carol and all your family,
    I wish to send you my Deepest Sympathy and Condolences with the passing of your Father, Grandfather and my Uncle.
    I have many fond memories of hearing from my mother of Uncle Allen’s surprise visits to Adelaide and Pirie when he would visit his sisters and brothers on special occasions and when they weren’t well and needing a boost. He phoned them regularly and wrote when he couldn’t visit. The stories he told and his genuine love for his family will not be forgotten. I didn’t visit him or Auntie Jean often enough but when I did special memories were imprinted in my heart.
    A huge meaning now to the next generation so that the McDonald Clan of Clanranald continues…. ‘My Hope is Constant in Thee’ … with much love Rosemary.
    (Simon wishes to pass on his Condolences to you all as well.)
    RIP Uncle Allen

  3. Remembered with great fondness.
    The last of my Mother’s siblings. Not the last of the McDonald team …keep on going and be encouraged by the heritage. Uncle Allen my Uncle
    was very loyal and loving towards his brothers and sisters and didn’t let distance stop him from contacting by phone and going ’home’ to Pt Pirie for special birthdays and in later years funerals . (Even if he had to hitch a ride.) A bit stubborn, unique ,resilient and always a bit special. I appreciated the brief contacts on phone or cards over a lot of years.
    I’ll miss those a lot cheers Unc.
    it was good to know you.
    My best wishes to the family today and onwards love Tony Green a nephew

  4. Our deepest condolences to Rodney, Neil, Carol and Julie and their beautiful families. Uncle Allen was always our favourite uncle who loved to sometimes visit us in Port Pirie and Fisherman Bay. Our sons Grant, Brett & Leigh still talk about him and his funny fishing stories and how he and Aunty Jean loved holidaying in Qld. We kept saying we would visit and unfortunately that didn’t happen mostly due to Covid and we deeply regret that. The last of the McDonald’s and the best. We will miss you RIP Allen. . Big hugs to my cousins ❤️

  6. Dear Rodney, Neil, Julie and Carol and extended families,
    My condolences to you all. It is hard to say goodbye.
    I have great memories of your father arriving at Pirie, surprising us all of his arrival,
    When a few of the siblings were getting together for a celebration of sorts., over the years. He loved the connection with his family and remained loyal to them all. So we have .lost them all, Ron, Lycurgus, Edna, John (Jack), Joyce, Jean,Kevin and Allen. Our memories of them all, including our Grandparents at Port Pirie will remain with me.
    He will be watching over you all.
    Rest in peace, Uncle Allen.

  7. Dear Rod, Neil, Julie and Carol, we send you and your dear families our condolences as you gather together to say farewell to your Dad, our Uncle Allen this week. When I was born in Pt Pirie in 1941, Uncle Allen was still living at home with Nana & Grandad – & with my mother, Edna, & me as we lived there also. I was thoroughly spoilt apparently & encouraged to walk at an early age by Uncle Allen & I loved him dearly forever after & looked forward to seeing him on his trips back “home” to Pirie over the years, & seeing our cousins. He unexpectedly arrived, with Auntie Allie & Uncle Ron for my mother’s wedding to Kevin Castle, which absolutely delighted her, he came again for the McDonald family reunion & was there again for Edna’s funeral in June, 2012 with his adult children. We always loved seeing him & listening to his stories of life in Pirie, along with his unique, cheeky sense of humour. Peter & I were always made welcome when we saw Jean & Allen in Melbourne, going back to 1959, 1964 & 1966. We had a lot of laughs with you Allen, & good memories. God Bless you and rest now in peace with Jean.
    Our thoughts are with our cousins & their families in Victoria, Margaret & Peter

  9. Dear Rodney, Neil, Julie, Carol & family.
    We are so sorry to hear about your dear dad’s passing.
    I’ve just watched the live stream service and it was beautiful. Everyone spoke so well & it was lovely to hear about a life well lived and so loved by so many.
    What a character Allen was. Hope he’s still doing headstands & somersaults in heaven for Jean & all his friends. RIP Allen.
