The family wish to thank the wonderful staff at Andover and Piccadilly who made such contributions to the comfort and care of his last years. No service by request.




  1. I went to Elphinstone High School with Alan at Gibsons, B.C. and remember his friendliness and his high spirits. My brother, Patick Slinn, and I send our condolences to his daughters.

  2. So sorry to hear of Alan’s, sometimes called Sam, death. 2017 and 2018 have seen a lot of loss for your families. I knew all three, Alan, Marnie and Tracy. They talked of you both and always kept us up to date on children, grandchildren and greats. So sorry for your loss and may they rest in peace.
