“Allie” was born on April 6, 1944, at the Saint John General Hospital. He was the only child of Ralph Albert MacKinnon and Gladys Anne (Phillips) MacKinnon. Allie was raised from a young age in Cumberland Bay by his mother’s first-cousin, Edna (Colwell) Ellsworth, and her husband, Frank Ellsworth. In his adult life, Allie lived with his foster-brother, Allan Clifford Grant. For the past 15 years, Allie has lived independently in his own home. Throughout his lifetime, his daily routine of bicycling around Cumberland Bay made him a fixture in his beloved community.
