Had'nt seen Alan since we grauated from BHS until last summer when we had our first summer reuion after our big 50th reunion.  He said that he didn't realize that I was the Postmaster of Churchville (where He lived at the time) until after I retired.  He looked great  and drove his beautiful triumph roadster.  May he Rest In Peace.  Tom Hoitink

Sorry to hear the sad news...I remember Allan from our early childhood days. He was also an alumnus of Lincoln Elementary School on Williams Street (school years kindergarten thru fifth grade.) Even at that early age, he was super intelligent and a very sweet, kind person. Lincoln did not have a cafeteria so if you stayed at school for lunch - ya had to brown bag it and sit in the classroom and eat along with your teacher and classmates. (Things were very humble and confining back in those 50's glory days :-) Allan LOVED peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! That is all I remember him eating for lunch in the five years that we had lunch together. I was the resident school fatso at that time and I loved eating big fat wet equivalents to today's submarine sandwiches for my lunch...and when I would offer Allan one of my subs he would kindly refuse the offering saying he only liked p/j lunches. Damn, he must have been onto something back then with his diet - as he was slim, smart, and good looking. Sorry to say that we lost our friendship-closeness after Lincoln...However, I remember his friendly smile and kind words as we passed in the halls during our school years at Ross Street Junior High and State Street High. Good man back then, and by the sounds of his profile...he continued thru life leaving a successful Legacy for his family and friends. May God bless and ... welcome you home, Allan.

I'm so glad that Allan came to our Class of 65 picnic last August.  It was good to visit with him and I know he had a good time. No one knew who he was when he drove up in his Triumph. It was a joy to see him. Rest in Peace.

Didn't know Allan well, but what I did know of him was that he was a man of dignity and humility ... a man of CLASS, even though he spelled his first name incorrectly. The stars are brighter tonight!!

Allan and I were team mates for two years on the Tennis Team. We were second doubles partners. Allan was a great sportsman and a class act all the way around. It was an Honor to call him a friend and my playing partner. Our Senior year, he moved up to first doubles with Dean Schultz and Gordon Enns got stuck with me at second doubles. Allan and I had several classes together and he always had a positive attitude toward school and life. I was lucky - like so many others in our class - to know him. Rest in Peace Allan.
