4. Alan William Prentice, b. 14 Jul 1915, Yellow Grass, Saskatchewan, and d. 21 Sep 2002 at home at the age of 87. Bur in the Pangburn Cemetery. His obituary appears in The Wilson County News in Floresville, TX. As a young age Alan learned about life on the farm - the good and the bad. Farming was to be his way of life for over 40 years.

On April 8, 1942 Alan married his high school sweetheart, Dawsie Smith about 1942. She was b. 1918 and d. 13 Jul 2005, dau. of Bill and Margaret Smith. She is bur. in the Pangman cem. with her husband, Alan.

Through his daughters, he was blessed again with five grandchildren. Later Alan would chuckle as the grandchildren expounded on their adventures and misadventures. The sports and athletic stories they told him were always greatly appreciated. Both granddaughters and grandsons enjoyed the mints he gave them. They could also charm him into giving other gifts and favours. The only exception was that he would not give them his older pickup truck. As a young man he enjoyed various sports - baseball, hockey, curling, horseshoes, and even golfing out in the sheep pasture. In his early retirement years, Alan enjoyed attending auction sales and recycling buildings.

More recently, Alan had enjoyed playing pool with his friends at the Drop Inn Centre, buying and selling old tractors, making latch-hook mats, and playing cribbage with his daughters. Alan definitely proved the saying "Once a farmer, always a farmer" to be true. He had been out at the farm working in the shop just several days before his passing. He is deeply loved and missed by his wife, daughters, sons-in-law, grandchildren and their spouses and his great grandchildren. Daughters:
