Allen, Grant Charles

November 1st, 2019

On Friday, November 1, 2019, Grant Charles Allen, 67, of London, Ontario, left this earth peacefully surrounded by loved ones. Much loved father of Pamela (Nick), Krista (Chris) and Carlene (Shaun). Beloved brother of Brenda Gunn and survived by his ex-wife, Dona Mustard. Cherished Grandpa of Kara, Danaka, Caelan and Kamryn. Grant was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Grace Allen.

Born October 13th, 1952 in North Bay, Grant grew up in London, Ontario. He began his career in broadcasting as a radio DJ in Kapuskasing at the age of 17. Over the years, his broadcasting career took him to various cities across Southwestern Ontario, including Windsor, Woodstock and London.

Although he retired from broadcasting, he never lost his passion for radio and his final years were as rebellious as his first, operating a pirate radio station from home (98.7 FM), as DJ Jack Daniels.

A Celebration of Life will be conducted on Sunday, November 10, 2019 at WESTVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL, 709 Wonderland Road North, London, at 2:00 p.m., with visitation one hour prior, at 1:00 p.m. Memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer Society London and Middlesex or VON Middlesex-Elgin.

Book of Condolences

Brenda GunnTo my Brother Grant - You have been here for 67 years of my time on earth. It still doesn't seem real that you have journeyed on to the next of life's adventures. You brightened lives with your amazing sense of humour, love of music & talent on the airwaves, & I know you will share these gifts in the place you are now. Your love for your beautiful girls & grandchildren is unsurpassed, as their love is for you. Although we can no longer see or touch you, you are in our hearts forever, & if we listen closely we can hear your voice, for you are not really far away. I'm glad you are my brother & I will always love you. Everyone takes the journey you are on, & I will see you when I get there. We'll have a beer & listen to the music! Love, Brenda

Gayle McKayTom and I are so sorry for the loss of your brother, Brenda. I got to spend time with the two of you on our trips to London and he truly did have such a great sense of humour. I am honoured to have been just a small part in your final trip to see him before he passed. Thinking of you and the rest of your amazing family.

Pamela AllenAlways missing you, Dad, but especially at Christmas. It was your favourite holiday and it doesn't feel the same without you. I'm going to take another crack at your famous holiday chocolates this year, send me some luck, would ya? Can't imagine what you would have thought of 2020, but I'm sure you would have found some humour in it, like you did with everything. I love you and miss you so much, always. "Huge big bunches". Love always, #1.
Casca2525sad to hear about this I use to deliver flyers in the southdale millbank area and your station was the HIGH point to what would have been a crappy day, but you always made it enjoyable!
