Alan Douglas Beavers
October 26, 1954 – May 13, 2018
Alan Douglas Beavers, 63, died May 13, 2018. Born on October 26, 1954, he was the fourth child of the late Merwin G. Beavers and the late Louise Cook Beavers. He is survived by his brother Gordon Beavers and his family of Fayetteville AR, by his sister Carroll Beavers Patterson of Austin TX and her family, by his brother David Beavers and his family of St. Louise MO and by his brother Larry Beavers of Switzerland.
He attended Canyon High, New Braunfels and San Antonio Community College before pursuing a career in music. Alan was well known in the close-knit musical community of central Texas. Not only had he played in bands since he was a teen-ager but he had carved out a nice career as a sound engineer.
Alan had many talents besides music. He built cases for guitars and sound equipment and eventually started building vintage race cars with one of his brothers. He loved photography, hunting for fossils and anything to do with astrophysics. He was quite the Renaissance Man
On Sunday, May 27, 2018 from 3:00 to 7:00 PM there will be an Alan Beavers Memorial Blues Jam at Riley’s Tavern, New Braunfels TX. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the charity of your choice.

Words cannot describe how much Alan meant to me.
Alan was amazing, but he was also so much more.
He was talented, funny, and a genius.
Alan was like my dad and I loved him like he was.
I called him Uncle Alan because I considered him family.
I am in shock and I don’t want to accept that he is gone.
He meant the world to me and I miss him so much already.
I miss talking to him and visiting him after classes.
He was always there for me. I will miss calling him and talking to him.
I will miss going out and seeing him.
I will miss telling him about school and all the stupid silly things I do.
I will miss talking to him about everything.
I am so happy I knew Alan for 20 years. I am so happy he was part of my life.
He was the greatest person who I will always love and cherish.
I always had a great time with Alan and I have many memories with him.
He taught me a lot and he made me laugh a lot.
I wish he was still here and I wish I could give him a hug one last time.
I wish I could tell him how much he meant to me and how much I love him.
He was my second dad and I will always cherish the memories I have of him.

Alan, I am so shocked. I am so sad.
I am having a difficult time finding the right words to describe how much Kailani and I are going to miss you.
You've been one of my closest friends for over 40 years...Just the thought that we won't get to talk to you way too long and way too late on the phone anymore..is so hard to even think about.
I can't imagine not being able to drive past the dinosaur rock and through the gate and into what's always felt like our home away from home. You were always there for me and Kai.
You are the hardest working person I know. Ever since your days at Pran. You would work so hard at your job.
During the week you'd rehearse for the gigs you did over the weekend.
And you always made the time to help your Mom and Dad anyway you could. I always admired that about you.
You took such wonderful care of your Dad and then your Mom right up until the end.
It's sad that you didn't get to see what your current car project was to bring you.
I imagined that it would bring you that nice and comfortable retirement that you so much deserved.
Alan, I love you like a brother, and "Uncle Alan" means so very much to Kai, and always will.
You will be missed and you will never be forgotten.

Alan was one of a kind. So talented in so many ways. I must have played 300 gigs with him. He was a fantastic musician and he will be missed by us all.

I haven't seen Alan in years; the last time was in Galveston, Texas. He was performing with Fred Mitchim and it was incredible (as usual). I spent most of the 80's playing music with Alan in The Zone mostly in Austin, Texas and with the Beavers Brothers Band in New Braunfels, Texas. He was extremely talented, gifted in working with electronic/sound technology, and had a great sense of humor. Sad to hear he's gone. Heaven gets another talented musician!
