Alan E. Trevellyan Jr., 50

Alan E. Trevellyan Jr., born on April 10, 1959, was received into the arms of the Lord on Sept. 19, 2009.

  Alan was the son of Alan E. “Percheye” and Cornelia (Mahar) Trevellyan. Al was a devoted husband to his wife, Stacey (Foster) Trevellyan, and loving father to his children Kirk and Mackenzie, who were the pride and joy of his life.

  Survivors include his sister, Sue Trevellyan of Watervliet, brother Brian (Anne) Trevellyan of Scottsdale, Ariz., and sister Kathleen (Michael) Putorti of Whitehall;  sisters-in-law Tina (Jon) Wilson of Rosemount, Minn., Brenda (Andre Hagadorn) Mahar of Whitehall and Kim Goff of Granville; his mother and father-in-law Sandy and Donald Herbst, father-in-law Gordie Foster; nieces and nephews include Patrick, Molly and Ian Trevellyan, Elyse and Allie Putorti, Chelsea and Amanda Wilson, Devin, Nikia and Blaire Mahar and Bruce Gordon. His extended family includes several aunts, uncles and cousins.

Al was a graduate of Whitehall Jr. Sr. High School, class of 1977.

He was a corrections officer at Great Meadow Correctional facility for 29 years.

Al was a communicant of Our Lady of Hope Church in Whitehall where he was a member of the men’s choir for more than 20 years. Al thoroughly enjoyed attending Mass and singing songs of praise and worship.

Besides church music, Al had a love for all music and could be counted upon to share his vast knowledge of music facts.  Another one of Al’s talents was gathering and storing an abundance of little-known tidbits of information. His family and friends might have called them “useless,” but Al could always be relied on to answer any trivia question that might have come up.

He was a member of the Skenesborough Volunteer Fire Company and held the office of secretary until he retired from active duty. Al enjoyed the camaraderie to this day stopping by the station to talk to the firefighters and assist with fundraising.  He was a faithful American Red Cross Blood donor, donating more than 5 gallons of blood over his lifetime.

 A Mass of Christian burial was celebrated on Tuesday, Sept.22, at Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church in Whitehall with the Rev. Francis Dunbar officiating. Interment followed in Our Lady of Angels Cemetery.

 Calling hours were held Monday, Sept. 21, at the Jillson Funeral Home, Inc., 46 Williams St., Whitehall.

  In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Skenesborough Volunteer Fire Company, P.O. Box 338, Whitehall, N.Y. 12887 or Our Lady of Hope Church, 9 Wheeler Ave., Whitehall, N.Y. 12887.
