Alan Kass

October 26, 1953September 8, 2020

Alan Kass, died peacefully at home with his wife by his side in Fort Mill, S.C. Tuesday, September 8, 2020. He was the longest living patient and first to fly on the Syncardia Total Artificial Heart.

Alan was born on October 26, 1953 to Anne Coversano and Arthur Kass in Little Neck, N.Y. He married Helen Kass in Coral Springs, Fla. on November 26, 1982. Alan was married to Helen almost 38 years. Alan is survived by his wife Helen, son Joseph, mother Anne, sister Susan, sisters-in-laws Michele (Jeff) and Sue, brothers-in-law Mark and Scott, along with three nieces and two nephews, Krissy (Matt), Stephanie (Matt), Rachel, Darrell, and Andrew.

Alan’s passion was sharing the love of Christ with everyone. He had a weekly radio show on WEXY 1520 in South Florida as Filling Station Ministries and was ordained at Triple Cross in David Florida. He preached at various places including Phil’s Heavenly Pizza in Pompano Beach FL. Alan had a sense of humor and people quickly came to love him. But make no bones about it, everyone heard about what Jesus did for him. It was always about “Just one more”.

Alan was one of the greatest men of God I know. I always watched his videos. he taught me a lot about the word of God. He would read it then break it down so you could understand it! I I remember a time in my life when I was having a really hard time, he pulled me to the side and talked with and prayed over me! He was not just a preacher nor was he just your friend he was family! Everyone who knew Alan will tell you he treated you like family!! I’ll miss them comments on my posts, I’ll miss reading his posts and watching his videos of him giving the word and them beautiful fall videos of the trees changing!!! You will be forever missed!!
May you rest easy Alan in the arms of our Lord and savior, till we meet again my friend my brother!

I have a lot of great memories of Alan because he was so intentional about feeding the Love of God into everyone he met.
My most powerful memory was a late night in a diner over lots of coffee and conversation where Alan kindly spoke words of affirmation and Gods Truth into our young waitress. She told us she was pregnant and was considering abortion. Alan shared the Gospel with her and she decided to commit her and her baby's life to the Lord right there. We prayed with her and gave her a bible I had been carrying in my glove box for months but didnt know why. God Knew.
I am so thankful for Alans friendship and the legacy he left of never wasting an opportunity to share the Love of Christ!
