Alan died peacefully Oct. 22, 2021 after a long battle with ill health. Always a baseball fan, he battled with two strikes for a very long time. He will be forever missed by his family: best-friend and wife, Jeanie, children Lori (Rick), Lynn (Chuck), Gordon (Angie); grandchildren Kaitlyn, Cale (Lindsay), Colton (Vendela), Jessie, Annie, and great-grandson Jack whom he waited to meet.
We are grateful to the many Home Health and Baillie House careworkers, nurses, and staff who cared for him with such compassion and kindness.
Alan loved his family fiercely. He also loved ballparks, sad movies, the accordion, painting, great music, fine clothes and his own handsome curly locks. He was generous, kind, sometimes stubborn but never afraid of hard work. He liked to tell a good story and a bad joke – good traits in his career as a realtor and his many years in the plumbing and heating business.
Alan spent countless hours coaching softball and hockey. A survivor of prostate cancer, he volunteered with Tri-Cities Prostate Cancer Support Group to raise money for research.
He was loved beyond measure. If he could, he’d tell you to hug your family, to never take any wooden nickels, and to always, always keep your eye on the ball.
The Terry Fox Foundation had a huge place in our dad’s heart and any donations in his name would mean the world to him and to us.Obituary
