Obituary of Allan "Al" Majander
September 30, 1944- July 12, 2021
It is with heavy hearts and tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of Al Majander on Monday July 12th, 2021 at the age of 76 years. “Big Al” as many of you know him, was in the hospital for open heart surgery which went well but there were multiple complications that arose during the next 7 weeks while in hospital. To say that Al was competitive would be an understatement, he did not like to lose, and we know he fought until he had no more left to give.
Al was born in Welland Ontario but raised in Timmins. It is here where he met the love of his life, Lynne (née Dudleigh) at the young age of 15 years old and with whom he celebrated 55 years
of marriage. He was a wonderful Father to Greg (Joanne) and Kelly (Steve Blake). He was an amazing Grandfather to Tanner, Camryn and Andie Majander; Connor and Brooklyn Blake;
Sydney McCahon. A loving Uncle to Tim Sloan and Jennifer McCahon (Shaun). He was predeceased by his parents Andrew and Rose Majander and his sister Nancy Sloan.
Al was a fierce competitor in every aspect of his life. He excelled in his career, his athletic endeavors and as a human being. He was very passionate and dedicated to his family and friends as well as having a strong love for sports. Al played his Junior and College hockey in Northern Ontario and coached Midget AAA hockey in Ontario and Alberta for years. He was
fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel with teams internationally (Finland, Russia, Korea, Japan and USA). Al’s zest for life and enthusiasm was contagious, he made an
immediate impact one way or another on everyone he met. He had such a kind soul under his intimating demeanor, he would give his shirt off his back to a stranger and he loved everyone
unconditionally. Al will truly be missed by his family and friends. Our hearts ache so deeply but we feel so blessed and grateful to have so many wonderful memories and stories to share. In keeping with Allan's wishes, cremation has taken place. Arrangements have been entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services.
There are no upcoming public services scheduled or the service has occurred in the past.
