April 1st, 1936 – Jan. 13th, 2013
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Alan Catto at his home in Revelstoke, after a long battle with lung disease. Alan is survived by his wife Ann of 51 years; sons Mark & Noel; daughter-in-law Deanna and grandsons Mackenzie, Angus, Liam, & Allistair. Alan was predeceased by his parents William & Margaret Catto of Whitburn, England.
Born in Wallsend Upon Tyne in Northumberland England, Alan emigrated to Canada in 1971. His career as an electrical draftsman and construction officer took him across Canada from Montreal to Winnipeg, Edmonton, and finally on to a long and enjoyable period with BC Hydro in many towns around this province. Alan was a quiet man with a wonderfully dry sense of humor. He had a passion for photography, drawing and keeping up with his grandchildren. Alan brought a smile to the people he met.
A memorial for Alan will be held later this year. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Revelstoke Hospital Auxiliary, Box 1781, Revelstoke, B.C. V0E 2S0, in Alan’s name.

Cremation arrangements are in the care of Brandon Bowers Funeral Home, Revelstoke.
