After a yearlong courageous battle against cancer, it is with great sadness we say goodbye to Alan in his 84th year.
Loving husband to Patricia for 60 years. Father to Mary (Ray) and Gilbert (Lisa). Grandfather to Paul, Shari (Kyle), Rayna (Stéphane) Callie and Caleb. Great grandfather to Joel and William. He will be missed by his brother Dave (Marion) and sister Gillian. He will also be missed by nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Alan came to Canada with his predeceased parents Marian Brown (Stubbs) and Gilbert Brown at the age of 7. He worked at Consumers' Gas for more than 40 years starting as a handbill deliverer, went to night school to become a gas fitter, and Class A fitter, again back to night school to become a Service Supervisor and retired in Middle Management.
The family would like to thank the staff at Weston Gardens for their wonderful care and support.
Friends will be received at the Turner & Porter “Butler Chapel” (4933 Dundas Street West, Toronto), on Saturday March 18th, at 12:00-1:00 p.m. A Service will be held in the chapel at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Princess Margaret Hospital, Heart and Stroke Foundation or a charity of your choice.
