Allen Ernest Estabrooks
It is with deep sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Allen Ernest Estabrooks, age 88, of Sackville, NB. Allen passed away peacefully in the Drew Nursing Home on Monday, January 28, 2019.
Born in Midgic, NB, he was a son of the late Albert and Zora (Hicks) Estabrooks.
Allen was a custodian at Mount Allison University for 28 years, retiring in 1994. He was one of the guys at all the exhibitions in the Maritimes and spent many hours taking 1000's of pictures, always making sure that a copy was given to everyone. He enjoyed going down to St. Anne's Hall in the mornings to have "Coffee in the Woods" and catch up on all the gossip. He loved to tease and could give as well as take.
Allen will be sadly missed by his nieces Carolyn Smith and Marlene Phinney; nephews Fred (Joann) Estabrooks and William Estabrooks; several great nephews and nieces.
He was predeceased by his brothers Colburn (Irene), David (Hilda), and sister Helen (Edward) Sears and nephew Kevin Estabrooks.
