It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Alan Whitaker at home in Chemainus, holding the hand of his beloved wife, Beryl. Always the consummate gentleman, he will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by all whose hearts and lives he touched.
He was a devoted husband; Dad to Carolyn (Bob), Anne, Michael (Marg), David (Sharon); Grandpa to Cory, Angela, Trevor, Tyler, Neil, Kelly, Scott; Great-Grandpa to Riley, Nolan, Julia and Friend to countless individuals.
The family would like to thank Dr. Manhas and his staff, the community caregivers, and the many friends and neighbours for their overwhelming kindness and support especially during the past few weeks.
A service of remembrance was held on Saturday, June 16, 2012. Condolences may be shared online at
