Allison (Al) Theodore
September 18, 1936
– August 26, 2008
Passed away peacefully in his sleep
“Sonny” was raised in New Ross, Nova Scotia, but after joining the RCMP, he ended up on the West Coast. It was in Ocean Falls that he met and married Fern DeClercq, but it was in Campbell River that his daughters Kim and Karen were born and raised. He spent several years working at Snowdon Correctional Camp until the Sheriff Services began in 1973.
He loved hockey and played on the original Campbell River Oldtimers team. He also enjoyed cooking and made the best molasses cookies. He retired early to tend his garden, fish for trout and, perhaps most importantly, write a genealogy of the Seaboyers to leave as a legacy to his surviving family members and future generations.
He was an extremely kind and considerate man and will be greatly missed by his loving wife Fern, daughter Kim (Greg) Koopman, grandchild Emily Koopman (Campbell River, BC), daughter Karen Seaboyer (Vancouver, BC), brother Ken (Rita) Seaboyer (New Ross, NS), brother Gene (Mona) Seaboyer (Chester, NS), and numerous friends and relatives on both coasts. He was pre-deceased by his parents John and Frances Seaboyer of New Ross, NS.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 6 at 1:00pm at St. Peter’s Anglican Church, 228 South Dogwood Street in Campbell River. A celebration of Al’s life will follow in the Anglican Church hall.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Al’s memory may be made to the charity of your choice.

and gone a-fishing.”
