Obituary for Alan Edward Risebrough

February 15, 1945 - April 26, 2020

It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness, we announce that on Sunday April 26th, 2020, our beloved Poppi, Alan Edward Risebrough has passed away peacefully at home. Much loved husband of Nancy Marlene (Gaudaur) for 53 years. Loving father of Kevin (Elizabeth), Julie Wilson (Michael) and Leslie Meihm (Wallace). Beloved Poppi of Brady, Bryce, Erin, Emily, Megan and Dayna. Alan shared a special bond with his youngest brother Stephen (Gloria - deceased) and friend of Christine. Also beloved brother of Elaine Simpson (Frank – deceased) and James (deceased) (Carrol). He leaves a great hole in the hearts of the Gaudaur family and friends. As Owner and operator of Risebrough Refrigeration, he proudly serviced Customers throughout Clarington for 46 years. He was a member of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. Alan enjoyed building miniature wooden displays at Christmas for his family, gardening and loved to listen to classic country music.

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on, let me stand
I am tired, I'm weak, I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand, precious Lord
Lead me home

A Celebration of Life will be arranged for a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to M.A.D.D.,
Clarington Food Bank or Heart & Stroke Foundation would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Marlene and Family, I was so sorry to read of Alan's passing. Please know my thoughts are with you at this sad and difficult times.

Marlene and family,
So sad to see this notice about Alan-but I'm so grateful that you posted it in the paper so we could reach out to you. Many times you answered the phone and many times Alan came to my rescue. When I opened Acres of Blessing, Mennonite Meats and now Healthy Meats in Whitby (almost 18 years ago) -Al was a godsend to us. I started the store for my friend Kim who had ALS and having my own family with 3 children, and my own personal journey with breast cancer, Al always came to our rescue when we needed help with our machines. Such a genuine, humble and giving soul, and you as his team mate manning the phone. You are a wonderful family, and Al, I know, is watching over everyone.
My condolences and love to you all, he will be missed in this physical world, but will be with us eternally.
Watch for his little signs and nudges.
God bless xoxo
Paula Wineck
Healthy Meats

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze." Isaiah 43,1-2
