It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alan Douglas King on May 23, 2020

after a long battle with lung disease at the age of 64. ​
Alan was predeceased by his father James Patterson and is survived by his mother Ann Elizabeth (DePaolo).

He leaves behind his ​devoted wife of 40 years Brigitte, his son Jimmy, daughter Tamara, brothers Gordon (Luanne), Cameron (Liz) and sister Andrea Foster (Rodney), 3 grandchildren, nieces and nephews and his furry best friend Nucky, the pug.

Alan was a member of the Royal Canadian Regiment and deployed overseas and in Canada. He later worked as a counselor for Young Offenders and was a driver for the​ HSR. The family would like to thank the staff of the General Hospital for all their care. ​

"When death's dark stream I ferry o'er, a time that surely shall come; in Heaven itself I'll ask no more than just a Highland welcome"​
Pro Patria, soldier your fight is over!

It is with great sadness of the passing of our dear friend Alan King. I worked with Al from 2002 to 2010 for the Hamilton Street railway as a bus operator. We worked many shifts together running the Stoneycreek line and having great times hanging out together after work. Al will be sadly missed also by a great friend of ours Rich Rebejko who used to ride the bus with Al and I during these years. Rest in Peace my dear friend and ATU brother.

So terribly sorry for your loss. Alan , I mean MCPL King, was instrumental in making me the solder, father, and man I became back in 1987. He was firm but he soft side was always close by. I have so many memories. The world has lost a great man. Rest well Alan. Till next time.
