In loving memory
Alan de Jonge, 1986–2008
Beloved son of Sergei and Devora; brother of Joshia (Patrick), Sagen, Rubin, Talia and Corin; and uncle of Ayden and Rowan.
Alan died on August 27, 2008, at the tender age of 21, in a vehicle accident while tree planting in Northern Ontario. He is gone in the physical but remains in spirit. He is deeply missed.
Alan touched the hearts of everyone who knew him through his love of family and friends, his kindness, and his endless vitality. He was ever cheerful and always willing to lend a hand.
Alan was born just outside of Toronto on November 26, 1986 and grew up in Toronto, Oshawa and Chelsea. He lived in Wales in 2005-06 with his first love and closest friend, Kate Shipton and her family.
Alan was an exceptional craftsman, an accomplished musician and a natural leader who taught by example.
He was adept at guitar-making, writing and carpentry and loved to travel.
