September 15, 1926 – December 16, 2018
Alan Grace, 92, of Novato, passed away on December 16, 2018.
He was born in Winchester, England on September 15, 1926. He served in World War II in the Royal Navy. He was married to Linda Kung in August 2002.
Alan was an inventor, scientist, and innovator. He worked in high tech hardware with a variety of different companies in Canada and the US throughout his long career which spanned well into his late 80s. He held various patents which he developed during his career for his employers.
He is survived by his loving wife, Linda Kung, his daughter Linda Grace, son Simon Grace, step-daughter Jennifer Kung Gelini, and step-son Jeffrey Sondin-Kung.
Alan was a bright light in all our lives.

It is important to recognize that Alan is also survived by my mother, Pina Della Casa (formerly Pina Grace). Alan was married to my mom for more than 20 years before he met Linda Kung. Alan had five Stepchildren from this marriage, Rosa, Carmen, Josie, Susy and Mario who loved Alan very much.
We only wish that we were told in time to show our respects at his services. I remember how we would watch as he was inventing his patents which occurred while married to my mom.
He was as much family to us as he was to Linda’s children from her former marriage. I pray he enjoys a seat next to Jesus where one day I will see my step-father again. I love you Dad.
