In loving memory ~
It is with great sadness that the family of ALAN LESLIE DEROSARIO announce his sudden passing as a result of a tragic motor vehicle accident, on November 7, 2022, at the age of 69.
Alan was born in Poona, India in 1953 to Lt. Col Leslie and Vivienne deRosario. He served as Public Health Inspector for the North Island. He was also a Port Hardy city councilor for a term.
Alan would often be seen with his white lab in Port Hardy. His dog Jillye survived the crash and is now living in Victoria. He enjoyed travel, having visited many countries around the world. He was also a published author, loved nature and exploring the many trails around Port Hardy. Cooking was also one of Alan's loves, he was an accomplished cook and professional baker. Alan knew a great deal of the North Island history and places of interest.
Alan will be greatly missed by his former wife, Nancee and their children Barbara (Steve), Lesley and her two children, Connor and Isabelle. Siblings, Donna-Kay Brown (Jerrard), Jennifer Little and Robyn deRosario (Virginie). Nephews, Ashley, Adrian, Allen and Austin and his Neice, Andrea Carlson.
There will be a private family memorial at a later date in the new year.
