Dear Chattaway Family:

May GOD bless you all during this difficult time and give you His PEACE.

Relation: Old friend from 1984

Living for a few months in Burnaby on Mar. Drive in 1984, on leave from Nigeria, my son and I were just getting into computers via that venerable Osborne “sewing machine.” We joined the Osborne club, where we met up with Alan. We so remember his patient teaching us some basic procedures on an avant garde machine and subsequent visits to the Chattaway home. Alan was a blessing to both of us whom we never forgot, even though we seldom reconnected when we moved to Vancouver permanently 17 years later. We have used those skills every day and my son ended up working for Yahoo in Silicon Valley and is now a computer guru. Thank you Alan. Enjoy the comforts of the bosom of Abraham and his Father.

From: Kent Morgan
Relation: Friend

My condolences to Katharina, and Alan’s Children and Grandchildren. Alan and I both were volunteers at Missions Fest in recent years, and I have fond memories of serving along side such a gentle and kind friend.
