There isn’t a good Greeting Card for this: An update

It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of one of St LAC’s longtime member and supporter, Alan Pawling.  I, for one, am really saddened by this as he was a part of my introduction to motorsport in Kingston.  In fact he was the first person to enquire as to my thoughts and experiences after my initial night of Alutoslaloming.  But it didn’t end there.  Alan always seemed genuinely Alan PAWLINGpleased to see me when ever we crossed paths which, of course, was at one auto event or another.  He never forgot what car I was currently working on and wanted to know how it was progressing.  He was eager to make a suggestion and never forgot what I was to try next and would remember to ask about it.   I wish that this was the case for anyone who might be trying something for the first time.

The family gathered together, privately, for a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, and Rite of Committal Prayers to follow at St. Mary’s Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, Memorial Donations, for those wishing, may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society (

It is the club’s wish to pay further homage to Al this summer at one of our planned summer events.  I’ll update this as things become more clear further down the road.
