Dear Pang family,
I was at Nathan Philips Square that night and performed CPR along with 2 other people. I have thought about all for you for 4 years. Tonight I was talking with my sister in law and she said she had found this obituary. I'm so very sorry.

Dear Alan. I miss you. I am sorry I could not be in Toronto for the 1 year anniversary skating. You have accomplished many wonderful things and blessed so many people in such a short time. I am proud of you. I just wished I had time to have said it in person. You left a deep void in my heart. With love always your sister, Mabe

Alan, we went to Nathan Philip Square to enjoy a family skate on your behalf. You loved this place and it is now a tradition for us as well. We miss you terribly but I felt your presence watching and smiling over us as we skated.
I could almost hear you with one of your puns. It made me smile.

RIP my Friend!

Yesterday was a very hard day. Cant believe a year has passed, still doesnt seem real! We have strong kids, it breaks my heart when i know theirs is broken. We shared some funny stories about you yesterday. Jaclyn talked about your "stupid jokes, which only you got." The day was harder for Ethan, he usually doesn't say much.
We think about every day, we know you are with us in spirit, Jaclyn and i can feel your presence. Hope you are at peace.
Love forever, Maggie, Ethan, Jaclyn

Our deepest sympathies go out to the Pang family. We were so sorry and shocked to just hear of Alan's sudden death. He was such a wonderful, kind, generous, loving person who always went out of his way to visit us in Winnipeg. He was especially thoughtful and caring when Bud was diagnosed with Leukemia. We will forever hold him dear to our hearts and cherish our friendship.
With love and prayers to all,

Dear Maggie, Jaclyn, and Ethan:
I was just made aware this morning of the sudden passing of Alan. What a shock this must be for all of us who knew of his passion for physical activity. I would like to express my sincere sympathy to all of the family at the loss of a really "gentle man". I hope that the pain that you have experienced at his loss, will be in time, dulled, at the knowledge of the impact Alan had on the lives of those he touched, as is so evident by the sheer numbers of messages and their content that have been left in his memory. He will always be remembered as the first, and so far, only convenor of the Rednor Road street party. What a pleasure it was to have him, and you, his family, as my neighbours.

I am extremely saddened to hear of Alan's passing. I was lucky to have met Alan at BEP over two decades ago. Alan stood out then, sharp, aggresive but most of all caring. He always took the time to listen and really cared about people. He even took me to the hospital one day after I was foolish enough to go to work with a rib broken in a soccer game the night before, taking the entire afternoon to wait with me. I had the good fortune of running into Alan pretty frequently over the last couple of years, chatting and going for lunch. He was the same as I remembered, always smiling and loving his family his work and his sports. I cannot put into words how sorry I am that he is gone. My best wishes to your family Alan, may you rest in peace.

My deepest sympathy is extended to Alan's children and family at this difficult time. I had only known Alan since starting with SCM in Sept. 2011, but was lucky enough to have been the recipient of his caring and thoughtful ways. From when I first started with the company as the Receptionist, he would stop by frequently and ask if there was anything I needed or he could get me as I could not leave my work station without a backup person being there. You will be missed Alan.

Alan was one of the most selfless volunteers we have ever had and we are extremely thankful for his contributions. He did it all from coaching to convening to umpiring and everything in between. There are a lot of kids in Markham that benefited from Alan and his dedicated efforts on the ball field. We will all miss him.

A few years ago, me and some moms from ET Crowle School Coucil were having a meeting at Maggie's house. It was snowing on that night. When we came out of the house, Alan had clear all the snow on the windshield and windows of our cars. It was so nice and thoughtful of him.

So Sad, So Sudden. I am surprised to learn of Alan Pang's passing at such a young age.
I have known Alan Pang through my brother, Duncan, since the 1980's. His passion is a genuine connection for outdoor sports, especially street hockey.
We would meet at Duncan's BBQ and Xmas parties and have fun with his kids, Ethan and Jacklyn, and my nephews, playing outdoor games. He particularly like to photograph family gatherings.
Alan is a devoted father and loving parent. I sincerely wish to extend my deepest sympathies to Maggie, Ethan and Jacklyn.
Losing a friend is a real loss.

My family wants to pass on our condolences and prayers to you and your family.

You and your dad officiated many of my son's baseball games this year. Alan was always very helpful giving feedback to coaches when they needed advice that would help the players, as it was always crystal clear that your cared about all the kids in the league.
When I last spoke with your dad, it was at the Markham Baseball appreciation night for the volunteers. Your dad was thrilled to emphasize about how very, very proud he was of you. He spoke about what a great pitcher you are and what a great person he knew you to be.

I can't help but think of Michael Jordan's response when he was once asked about losing his dad prematurely. Michael said that he was sad for the loss, but also incredibly grateful for all the time, love, and guidance that Jordan was able to get while he dad was still alive.

Your dad is in a better place right now and I know he remains filled with Joy when he thinks of what a wonderful person you have become.

As I write this a couple of hours before the New Year, this will be the first time since 1976 that a year has started without Al, one of my my oldest and dearest friends, in my life. We played so many games together, football, broom ball, sponge hockey and hockey, shared so many memories of working out together and celebrating wins, I cannot believe we will not relive these times in our stories any more. Al was one the original people in the Assassins family of teams, and the friends we still have in common over all these years and his relocation to Toronto speak to our strong bonds and the love we have for each other. Al would drive us crazy with his incessant picture taking, through all the games, weddings, children growing up and all the other experiences of life, and how valuable those pictures seem now.
He has always been a very special person for us, and he cared about all of his old friends as we passed through all of the good times, and especially the bad, I cannot accept that he won't be there any more for us.
It is only a few weeks since we were together, and he spent much of our time telling me about how proud he was of his kids and showing me so many pictures of the two of them at baseball and hockey. I know his children and brother and sisters are in so much pain now, know that his old friends in Winnipeg share that with you. Your dad and brother was so very special, I will think of him always

My deepest sympathy and condolences go out to Maggi, Ethan and Jaclyn as I share the pain of your loss.
Alan & I worked closely together for so many years and while our paths have not crossed recently, we were always able to pick up where we left off.
We celebrated so many milestones over the years and forged a deep respect both personally and professionally. Alan was an amazing father, coach, colleague and friend – always available to help and above all, Alan always remained true to himself.
We have all lost someone very special way too soon. I will cherish Alan's email of December 21st sending all good wishes and hope that he had a chance to read mine.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this very sad time.

It was my honour to be a colleague of Alan's at RMS over the past several years. Despite his busy schedule, he always took time to encourage and support others. His gracious, calm, positive manner, warm smile, and kind words of encouragement--as well as the many great photos he took at company functions--will be greatly missed by his work family. Ethan and Jaclyn, your Dad was always so very proud of you and we knew you were his number one priority in life. My thoughts and prayers are with you both and with the rest of your family at this time.

Nelson, Maggie, Artie and family:

Laurel and I were sadend to read of Alan's recent passing and wish to send our sincerest condolences to you and your family. As you know, I had the absolute pleasure of playing and coaching Al for over 15 years in Toronto. Although small in size, it was a special treat for everyone to watch Al undress larger and perhaps more talented players at our blueline with his far superior defensive energy, and understanding of the game of hockey. We were all saddened when he left our group with his move to Markham. His on ice skills and leadership helped us win two of our six championships and for that we will always be grateful and hold his memory in a special place in our hearts, always. - ciao angelo and laurel sgabellone

Our families have spent numerous Xmases, and holidays together. Our boys have come to know Alan as "Uncle Alan" since they were born. He will be greatly missed. There is a void this New Year's Eve as he was suppose to come here with Ethan and Jaclyn to ring in the New Year. Our hearts are heavy. However, the memories we've made will never leave. The numerous photographs Alan took of the kids sitting at the bottom of the staircase or in front of the Xmas tree has now become a tradition in our house. We will never forget "Uncle Alan".

May he rest in peace!

Love always,

We were so saddened to hear of Alan's passing. We got to know the Pang family first as neighbours, and more recently as a Coach, when this past summer Alan coached Cole in baseball. Alan was an incredible coach and mentor to all of the children he came in contact with. He spent time with each player, working to improve their skills and their confidence in the game. He was a pleasure to watch teaching the kids. His love of Ethan and Jaclyn was evident at all times, he was so very proud of all of their accomplishments. Our condolences to Ethan, Jaclyn and Maggie, we are so very sorry for your loss. David, Lee Anne, Katelyn, Cole and Zoe McCarthy

I've known Alan as a fellow Baseball Coach, parent and friend for a few years and am glad that he and Jaclyn were part of the Markham Mariners Peewee Select team last season. Alan was a great person whose dedication to his children and community was apparent to all who knew him.

When asked to join the team as an Assistant & Pitching Coach, Alan accepted the responsibilities enthusiastically. I learned during our first few email exchanges, even before the first practice, how much he cared about mentoring and teaching the team; his technical knowledge and ongoing learning were invaluable assets passed along through his coaching. One of my favorite memories of Coach Alan is from our post-game team meetings when he would ask the kids “So, what did you learn today?”

Alan, your positive guidance and influence touched the lives of many who will remember you fondly in years to come.

Maggie, Jaclyn, Ethan and the Pang family; we are truly sorry for your loss. Please know that your friends and community are grieving with you.

Alan will be missed around baseball diamonds and hockey rinks around Markham, he was a very dedicated volunteer and always took time to thank me for volunteering as I did to him. He did so much for so many children by Coaching and encouraging each and every one of them. He will be missed by many. Jaclyn, Ethan and Maggie and to the rest of Alan's family our sincere condolences to all of you.

All we can say is shocked and sad. In the early 80's I found myself in Toronto for 4 months. I didn't know anyone but the Pang brothers and being into sports myself, Al made sure that I had something to do all the time. Our thoughts are with you today.
