In memory of

Alister McLeod Burns

July 15, 1949 -  September 5, 2022

Peacefully at home on Monday, September the 5th, we mourn the loss of Alister Burns. Loving husband to Michelle, devoted father to Jason, Steven (Kim) and cherished daughter Meagan. Loving step-father to Celeste (Gary) and Jennifer (Thomas). Dear Granda to his best pal Noah and his namesake, wee Allison. Faithful brother to William and Nancy, Ian and Mae and his wee sister Jeannie and Rob (deceased). He was predeceased by his Mom and Dad, Barbara and William Burns. Ali will be deeply missed by all of his extended family, many friends and all who knew him.
Our Ali, may fair winds and following seas carry you home. Our hearts will never be the same.
A celebration of life will be held on Sunday September 18th, 2022 at 1:00pm at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 637, located at 1251 Simcoe Street North in Oshawa.
A special thank you to all of the doctors, nurses and staff at the Cancer Center as well as the palliative care team. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made to the Lakeridge Health Foundation in his memory, fund allocation to Palliative Care.

I miss you already. I will hold on to all of the good memories and you will always be with me. You lit up any room you were in and your laugh was infectious. You always had a quick joke and a warm hug. Love you always, thank you for always being there for me. Love "your Jenny" xo

We are so sorry to hear of Ally’s passing. Made a big impression wherever he went as when we met at Thomas’s and Jennifer’s wedding, such a lovely man. May he Rest In Peace.🌺

Ali will be dearly missed. Klondike bars at night and Angry Orchard drinks in the afternoons will never be the same. His sense of humor will always be remembered. We will miss our dear friend.
