In Memory of

James Barclay Allardice

October 14, 1914 - June 5, 2001


I am sad to be the bearer of bad news, but a very important pillar within our Allardice clan passed away earlier this week. James Barclay Allardice of Pittsburgh, Pa. He will be greatly missed by the family and to all those lives who he so deeply touched.  He was my grandfather. I have attached a copy of his obituary that was in one of the Pittsburgh newspapers. - Stacey Allardice McCulloch
