KINDLER, Alan Ronald Kindler Obituary | Print |

KINDLER, Alan Ronald -

(1942 - 2015)

Passed away at his home in Toronto on June 12, 2015 following a two-year battle with cancer.

He leaves in mourning his beloved wife, Rosalind Kindler; his two sons, Damian and Nicholas; his grandchildren Hannah, Noah, Sarah and Phoebe; two daughters-in-law, Jill Bodie and Helen Reeve; and his sister Mary-Lou.

Alan grew up in Melbourne, Australia where he attended Scotch College followed by medical school at Melbourne University. Alan married Ros, his best friend and beloved partner of 50 years, in 1965. They spent three years in Rochester, New York while Alan completed his residency in psychiatry. Moving to Toronto in 1971, Alan began a long and successful career as a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, which spanned over forty years.

Alan's passion for his work was unparalleled. He taught and supervised at all the psychoanalytic training institutes in Toronto where he was a creative and innovative influence. He was highly esteemed in the psychoanalytic community and his influence extended into the US as well as internationally. His primary love was his clinical work and his devotion to his patients was such that he continued to see them almost right until the end.

Alan was a lover of music and throughout his life had played a variety of instruments: clarinet, drums, classical guitar, ukulele, banjo and most recently, harmonica, which he loved to play along with Ros. They both learned to tap dance together.

He enjoyed travelling, relaxing at the cottage, visiting loved ones in Australia and spending time with Ros, his sons, daughters-in-law Helen and Jill and his most- cherished grandkids.

The family will receive friends at Mount Pleasant Visitation Centre, Toronto on Sunday, June 14th from 4- 6  p.m. All friends are invited to a reception to celebrate Alan's life directly after the service.
