September 13, 2019

The funeral of The Rev Canon Alex Wakeling, long time parishioner of the Cathedral, to be held in the Cathedral.

"The time of my departure has arrived.  I have fought the good fight, walked the journey and spoken the good news..my work is done."  Alex Wakeling.

The Reverend Canon Alex Wakeling passed away on the morning of September 6, 2019. He lived an incredible life, serving 27 years in the military as a chaplain here and abroad, and as a priest in the Dioceses of Calgary and Kingston. He served as the Vicar at St. George's, and after his retirement continued his ministry for the next seven years as an interim priest in the Diocese of Ontario.

He will be missed and fondly remembered by his many friends and parishioners as well as by his family: his wife of 62 years, Patricia; his three children Kathryn (Bob Macmillan), Alexander "Sandy" (Hanna), and Stephen (Donna); his six grandchildren, Candice and Bobby, Kimberly and Taylor, Joshua and Jasmine and his great-grandson, Fox.

Pat would like to extend a special thanks to the caring and compassionate nursing staff at the Kingston General Hospital as well as Providence Care Hospital, Heritage 2.

The family will gather for a funeral liturgy to be held at St. George's Cathedral, on Friday, September 13 at 1 p.m.  A time of fellowship will follow until 3 p.m. 

In lieu of flowers, those who wish may make memorial donations to St George's Cathedral or to the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund. 

May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

Time: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
