Sadly, we announce the death of Alan on Saturday, November 30, 2013. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Jean; children, Linda and Dinah (Craig) of Langley and daughter-in-law Tina of Nanaimo; grandchildren, Nikita of Nanaimo, Nastasja of Vancouver, Denis and Amie of Edmonton, and Sydney of Langley; brother, Jeffrey and family of Bulkington, UK; and sister-in-law Yvonne and family of Weston-Supermare, UK. Alan was predeceased by his son Christopher in 1992.

Alan was a loving, caring husband, father, and grandfather whose greatest joy was spending time with his family and good friends. He was one of the founding Members of the Nanaimo Riptide Swim Club. Alan was also a very keen runner and cyclist, enjoying those sports and the friends he made participating in them.

The family wishes to extend their heartfelt “thanks” to Dr Grace and the nurses of the third floor, staff and nurses in both the Emergency and Daycare Departments at NRGH for all the hours of kindness and care they gave to Alan during the past few years.

At Alan’s request, no funeral service will be held.
