With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Alan James Wilson (born 1939; age 83) on Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022. Loving husband to wife Mitsuko May (nee Tanaka). Father to Jennifer (James), Jamie (Chris), and Michael (Melissa). Proud grandpa to Piper, Eliot, Dylan, Jordan and Zia. Devoted brother to Leslie. Predeceased by his father Edwin, mother Catherine, and brothers Graham and Eric.
Alan will be remembered for his love and dedication to his family, the books, music and poetry he treasured and shared, his obsession with his golf swing and his love of Hawaii. He was a collector, a model railroader, a lover of science fiction literature and the dictionary. We remember all of the great family vacations, so many good times with family and friends on the golf course and his unending desire to share treats and unbirthday presents with his grandchildren. He will be missed by many extended family members and friends both in Toronto and in his hometown of Glasgow, Scotland.
The family will receive guests to offer condolences at the visitation on May 10th from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre, located at 1057 Brock Rd. in Pickering. All are welcome to join a celebration of Alan’s life at the reception from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. A private burial will take place following the visitation. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada. Online condolences may be left at etouch.ca
