Alan was a long time member of The GROUP in Tulsa, a monthly dance and social gathering for singles. He was always smiling, happy to be there, and could cut quite a rug. He will be greatly missed!

I was in the singles group at Tulsa Elks with Alan. Alan and I became good friends while there and I had recently spoken to him by phone about some pictures I had of him. I could send some of them if I could get an address. My e-mail is veb22@aol.com. I enjoyed his wit and caring attitude. He was truly a gentleman. Condolences to his family and Susan.

I was saddened to hear of Allen's death. We had some casual dates several years ago, and I was so fortunate to get to know him. I cherish the book he gave to me published by the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco. This publication highlighted some of his exquisite glass collection. My condolences to his family.

I am so sorry to read of the loss of Alan. We both were in a Tulsa singles group in the 1980s. Later, I would see him walking on the River Parks Trail and, after he retired, occasionally at Panera’s, always with a book he was reading. He was always so nice and eager to talk if you were open to a visit. I remember him telling about travels including a trip down the Amazon! I can’t say I knew him well, but he was always a gentle-man—everything his high school classmates described here. My sympathies to his family and friends.

I remember Al as a colleague and good friend of my husband, Keith Jones, Ph.D, Radiation Physicist at St. John. He was always sweet and very kind to our family.

I will always treasure the time I worked with Alan at St. John Medical Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was always kind and had great sense of humor. He would prop his feet up on his desk and close his eyes for a power nap after lunch, and always told me he was "reading the inside of his eyelids" if I tiptoed into his office to take him dictation to peruse and sign! He also liked to wheel around our department (Radiation Oncology) in his office chair when there were no patients in the department. He also shared my daughter's birthday and she made his birthday cards each year which he thought was awesome. I reconnected with him several years ago through a mutual friend as he had learned to dance and we shared a few dances together and got to catch up and visit. I will always remember his kindness, gentle spirit and friendship and was blessed to have been even a small part of his life. My prayers are with the family, and with Susan.

I was saddened to read of the death of Alan Feen in my email last night. I so enjoyed eating lunch with him in 11th and 12th grades at Friends Select, along with my brother Denny, Douglas Clark, and others. He was such a kind, stable, and gentlemanly soul, completely dependable, sincere, and available. I know he went on to practice medicine career-wise, and I do regret not maintaining contact with this shy and reserved and very fine human being.

I am very sorry to hear about Alan's passing. He and I were friends throughout high school; we traded jokes endlessly at lunch time in the cafeteria. He was intelligent, thoughtful and had a real wry sense of humor. I never realized that he was born 4 days before me in 1942. We did not keep up with each other after high school, but we did establish contact 10 years ago when I tried to twist his arm into coming to our 50th high school reunion (he was in Oklahoma at the time and politely declined). My deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends.
