Allan John Zarubin
Allan John Zarubin was born on October 16, 1948 in Benito, Manitoba. He spent his early years on the family farm in Pelly, SK, before moving to Balgonie and later Regina. Allan worked 46 years as a truck driver and was recognized for one million safe miles of driving in 1987, before going on to drive for another 30 years.
Allan enjoyed playing the guitar, but his greatest love was countless hours spent cheering on the Riders and Blue Jays. He passed his love of sports on to his only son, who could always depend on a post-game analysis phone call from his dad.
Allan is predeceased by his parents, Alexander and Mabel Zarubin; brother-in-law, Walter Antifeav and brother, George. He will be missed by his greatest pride in life – his son, Kevin (Amanda) and granddaughters, Brooke and Alicia; sister, Katie Antifeav and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
A Private Family Celebration of Allan’s life will be held at a later date.
The family wishes to thank Carole Kolbe for the care and friendship she shared with Allan in the last several years of his life. Many thanks to the physicians and staff of Unit 4B at the Pasqua Hopsital for their compassionate care in Allan’s final days.
