I knew Alan for almost two and a half years. At Brudnick Center for Living we developed a great relationship.We were opposites in ideologies and sports teams that we loved. Alan loved Brady,I couldn’t stand him,Alan was a Republican and followed Trump,I was a Democrat and loved Sanders Our conversations were salty but we always had a few laughs and parted with smiles on our faces.

I miss him dearly .Life here at Brudnick will never be the same without him . Alan was a polite and considerate gentleman. He always had an eye for women and couldn’t seem to get enough of Middle Eastern music on his phone.

I wish I could have known him earlier in his life. The “times” we might have had!!

Rest in peace my friend.
