April 28, 1931 – February 18, 2012
Alan was born in Manchester, England and immigrated to Vancouver in 1957 with his bride Frances Chandler. Alan enjoyed a successful 40 year career as a Ship Broker that allowed him the opportunity to travel the world. He settled in Qualicum Beach when he retired and has enjoyed the past 20 years here golfing, gardening, reading, and watching English Premier Soccer.
Alan is survived by Frances, his wife of 55 years, sons Andrew and Nicholas; daughter Wendy; grandchildren Jillian, Lauren, Aidan and Barrett as well as other extended family members.
The Sears family would like to express their sincere gratitude to all the doctors and nurses in ER, ICU and on the 4th Floor who took care of Alan during his time at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. We can’t thank-you enough for your guidance, caring and compassion.
A gathering of friends and family will be held at the family home at 1013 Eagle Crest Drive, Qualicum Beach on Saturday March 10, 2012 from 2-4pm.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Alan’s honour can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or an Animal Charity of your choice.
