I am so sad and shocked to hear. I'll think of him when I walk on Locke Street and in his honour I'll ask myself some challenging, interesting question and debate someone at the bar just like he would. His lively, opinionated take on the world and his joy at Jack's howling can not be replaced. He will be so missed at Starbucks. God Speed to you Alistair.

Alistair please don’t argue the “big man’s” calls. His red cards are serious.

We will all miss your tremendous spirit, love for our sport and above all your ability to bring a smile.

It is so sad to hear that Alistair left us at such an early age. He will truly be missed. I had the pleasure of playing footie with Alistair many years ago with Gator Ted's, and played against him in the O-50's this past summer. We always shared a few (or more) laughs after the games. Rest in peace. Steve Ottman
