Died peacefully into the arms of his Saviour, Jesus Christ surrounded by family. Husband of Marion Funk. Father of Alison Russell, Iain (Carolynn), Grant, Lisa Moore (Bill), Craig (Pam), and Adrienne Peetoom (Stuart); and Marion’s children Murray (Kim), Marilyn Soeiro (Paul), Gerald (Louisa), and Carl (Heather).

Alastair was the former choir director of the Ontario Presbyterian Chorus from 1992-2022. With his leadership, the choir sang a varied repertoire of sacred music reflecting on the objective of being a chorus with a message, a mission and a vision for a lost and needy world. His deep faith and love of music was brought out in the voices of the OPC members.

He was instrumental in organizing programs for the chorus to sing in various places throughout Western Canada, Eastern Canada, and churches in Southern Ontario. He also organized choir trips to Ireland, Scotland and Switzerland. He will be missed by everyone who knew him.

His funeral was held at Central United Church, Unionville, Ontario on Monday December 4, 2023.
