Allan Code passed away today and I tried to locate as many things as I could. What took front and centre was the race for mayor in Carleton Place.

Terry McLeod Allen believed in me .. hired me for his dealership .. I was so privileged to work for him .. as he was a kind man.

Dave White Saddened to hear this news. Alan was a great guy to work for and I enjoyed my time at Code Motors. Thoughts and prayers to Eleanor and family.


Remembering Allan Code—
When I was interviewing Nancy Code Miller years ago I told her how her father had saved someone’s life. In the early 90’s I taught aerobics at the Sussex Club in Ottawa. One of the members was on the verge of depression. Her husband had left her, she had two small children, and was destitute. When a friend was driving her to Smiths Falls, she saw Alan Code’s dealership and stopped to look at the cars. She had advised Mr. Code she would probably not be able to afford it, but he patiently sat down with her, and they picked out her car from the colour to the upholstery. The delivery date of 6 months was her goal to get her life in order. I don’t think she ever did pick up the car, but she eventually got a job, and all was right in the world. She told me she credited her success for the future to Mr. Code. He had given her hope. In talking with Nancy today, I can see the apple has not fallen far from the tree. Tip of the hat, and a big hug to you both, for believing in our small town of Carleton Place
