Born in Cairo, Egypt on March 16, 1958, Alan pursued his academic passion by obtaining a bachelor's degree in psychology. His journey led him to the United States, a country he deeply cherished and where he eventually became a proud citizen.
Throughout his life, he held diverse roles, from managing to owning a range of small businesses in Florida. In his later years, he notably served as an interpreter for Language Link, assisting government entities, state agencies, and the military with his linguistic skills.
As a national volleyball player in his youth in Egypt, his ardor for the sport never waned. Alan channeled his passion into founding Club V, a renowned outdoor beach volleyball facility in Florida that hosted numerous leagues and tournaments.
His zest for life was evident in his many hobbies. He also had a passion for cars, piloting airplanes, traveling all over the world, cooking, shooting pool, and engaging in spirited card games.
Beyond his impressive achievements and passions, Alan had a profound gift for truly understanding and connecting with those he loved. He was a beacon of support, always ready to offer a helping hand, lend a listening ear, and provide solace during challenging times.
He had an innate ability to tell his stories sprinkled with humor, lighting up rooms and evoking hearty laughter from those fortunate to be in his presence.
Alan's heart always remained full, especially for his beloved children Lena, Danny, and Isabella, as well as his cherished grandchildren, siblings, and extended family.
His absence will be deeply felt by all who knew him. But there's solace in knowing that he is now free from any earthly pain.
A graveside service for Alan will be held Thursday, September 21, 2023 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM at Sylvan Abbey Memorial Park, 2860 SUNSET POINT RD, CLEARWATER, FL 33759.
