Most of Alan’s working life was spent on the Great Lakes. Sailing for over 30 years until an accident forced him to retire, you  could say sailing was in his blood and he made many great friends, whom he spoke of often.  He will be greatly missed by all his family and many friends here and Thorold, ON.

He is also survived by his stepson, Trevor, and his children, Andrew, Brendan, Jessie and Carmen; as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Besides his parents, James and Margaret he was predeceased by his much loved sister, Lynn DiMarco.

Cremation has taken place.  A memorial mass will take place 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, August  13, 2019 at Immaculate Conception Church, Bridgeport, with Fr. Daniel Boudreau officiating.  Reception to follow.
