We were deeply saddened to hear of Allen's passing from his cousin, Richard Daigneault here in Timmins. Both my husband and I worked for Allen's parents at Northern Backhoe Service years ago. I personally worked with Allen in the office while his mother was ill for a few years. The Pratt family had many tragedies. Our prayers go out to you all.
