McNicoll, Alan: An avid golfer, Hearts supporter, scotch enthusiast and retired soccer star passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 19, 2020. Born on August 19, 1946 in Edinburgh, Scotland to Helen (nee Cordiner) and George McNicoll. Loving husband of Hilda Yeung and step father to her children Henry, Angela (Angel) and the family dog Yoki. Alan leaves his two loving children Fiona (Allen) and Colin (Rebecca) and their mother Margaret (nee Hoggan). His nuances, wit and banter resulted in so much laughter and created many amazing memories for everyone. He loved family dinners and never missed bringing the buns and cheesecake. We will cherish and continue the tradition of cooking a Scottish breakfast Christmas morning. He was a good listener and was non judgemental which made him a loving and caring family man. He took great pride solving everyone’s problems, analyzing, listening and taking care of his family. He took care of his home and didn’t rely on others for help. Alan was an extremely proud Papa of his five grandchildren Allix (21), Jack (19), Charlie (7), Ryian (7), and Callum (7). Papa went on adventure walks, kept treats in his pockets, played in the pool, built Lego and was always coaxed into whatever activity was going on. He loved going to hockey games and taking the kids out for lunches. Papa never said “no”. Alan will be fondly thought of by his cousins Maureen & Norman, extended family, friends and past colleagues in Scotland and Canada.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
