Dean Alan, you were a dream to work with at the prosecutor's office! You were always so helpful and never angry at anything or anyone! I loved when you brought Jamie to work with you too, she was an absolute pleasure to be around. I'm extending my condolences to the Alan family...your family. May God help you you all through your loss. Rest in Peace Dean, you are missed by so many!

Some of my fondest memories of growing up were fun times spent with my Alan family. Our family trips, sleepovers and holidays were the absolute best. Uncle Dean was one of a kind and I’m blessed to have called him my Uncle. xo

Hi Alan family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Mr. Alan was a super guy. I will truly miss him a lot. I always liked and thought it was funny he would come and shop at my Kroger store and say what's up Jeff the man Horan. I knew Mr. Alan while Jamie and I went to camp for many years. Many blessings to you Alan family. Many blessings. Just know he will be with you all always. May Christ be with you all. Sincerely Jeff Horan.
