Passed away peacefully with his family by his side, at South Huron Hospital, Exeter on Monday, June 26, 2023 at the age of 83. Beloved husband and farming partner of the late Marlene (Eagleson) Rundle (2021) for 59 years. Cherished father of Scott Rundle and Bonnie Baynham, and Lisa Rundle. Adored grandfather of Megan. Dear brother and brother-in-law of Hugh Rundle, Margaret Truemner, Marion Dougall, and Sharon Latta. Fondly remembered by his many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents Arthur and Alma (Harding) Rundle, and his brother-in-law Ron Latta.
Allan’s work career started early at the age of 14, running the family farm with the help of a hired hand. His involvement in 4-H took him to the Royal Winter Fair, receiving top prize winning ribbons for his Charolais Heifer. His love of sports led him to be part of an Ontario Championship baseball team. In hockey, he was drafted by a farm team to the big leagues with his nickname, Al “Bruiser” Rundle. Ultimately, Allan chose to be a part of his own family farm team on the Rundle Homestead for the next 60 years.
“Never under estimate the power of silence”
In keeping with Allan’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A private family graveside will be held at Exeter Cemetery at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to Haskett Funeral Homes, Exeter (519-235-1220).
Donations to South Huron Hospital Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
