Dearest Allan, I can’t believe your truly gone, I watched you over the last few days, sleeping so peacefully, opening your beautiful blue eyes, at the sound of my voice squeezing my hand, telling me :it’s going to be ok, then on Friday at 10:30 pm u confessed to me that you were ready to let go, I prayed and asked God to be Merciful, and if it was his will, to allow you to come safely home to his loving arms to be with him! You fought a good fight , you finished the cource!!! I did my very best, it broke my heart to loose you, I sent you with my Love, I knew that Jesus Loved you best he was beckoning from above, My Son the worst is over , I extend my open arm’s!!!! No more sickness no more pain, You are free from any and all harm.You new address is Eternal Rest! where All streets are Paved in Gold, There is only love, Forever, Where you will never be old or cold! The Time has come and now must part and say our last Good Byes, For now until our God calls me I’ll meet you in the Sky. Always, with My Love, & Prayers Nadine , ps My Dad will Help you anyway he can, please tell him You’re The Best!!!!!

Shared memories of Allan...

Allan loved and excelled at sports. He played HCYP Softball (Left Field) right up to age 65. He was an expert skier. He shared memories of skiing with his sisters in Stowe Vermont (in his early 20s) and a 1961 trip to Europe where he skied in the Alps with his sister Dorothy. He was an avid golfer, having played to late in life with the Tee to Green Golf Club at Forest Park. At his best, he was a 14 handicap and his best round of golf was a remarkable 79!

Allan loved music and became very good on the Saxophone. In 1979 (age 40) he joined his first band, The Daniels Band. He went on to play in other bands -- Middle River Concert Band, The Tall Ceder's Band and the Chesapeake Concert Band. Later in his life he continued 3 nights a week and played the Saxophone with the Shriners Boumi Brass Band and Dance Band.

In the last decade of his life, Allan lived at Oak Crest retirement community in Parkville, Maryland where he was lovingly looked after by his caregiver, Nadine, to the end of his life.

Though Allan may have gone ahead, surely his friends and family who survive him, whether it be years or lifetimes from now, will meet up with him again.

I feel very blessed to have known Allan. On one occasion, he shared with me a few interesting stories about his life. Here are some of the memories that he shared. Allan grew up in the depression and shared that times were tough during those days. His earliest years were in Lynchburg, VA but the family moved to Washington, DC when he was 6 months old. He attended Gage Elementary School, Langley Jr. High and Calvin Coolidge H.S. In his Junior High School years he had his first job delivering newspapers. Out of H.S. he went to Pittsburg, PA where he spent one year in Bliss Electrical School before attending and graduating JHU with a degree in Electrical Engineering.

Upon graduation from JHU, he spent one year working for the VA Electric Power Company in Washington, DC. When the opportunity came for him to work for Westinghouse, and noting that they also offered him an excellent benefit package, he accepted the job and moved to Baltimore. He had a very rewarding 36 year career with Westinghouse. To this he noted, "I earned a lot Pen & Pencil sets, money clips and belt buckles."

Among his greatest accomplishments, as a Design Engineer for Westinghouse, while working in the Test Department & Laboratory, he was instrumental in the development of the 1st Radar that Westinghouse ever built. Keeping his promise even later in life, he wouldn't divulge any details of other top secret projects he worked on, including weather satellites and other military projects with code names (which again, he wouldn't divulge!)

He was accomplished musician and avid athlete throughout his life and even into his later years. While in High School, Allan's mother decided he should play the violin. He quickly was moved into an advance clase but his violin days didn't last long as his instrument was full-size and was to cumbersome for him to lug back and forth to school. It was 1972 (in his early 40s) that Allan started playing the Saxophone.
