I worked with Alan at Baker Construction back in the mid-80's. I really enjoyed working with him and was able to socialize with him on weekends. He was a lot of fun to be around. I took another job and we went our separate ways. I opened up my own business which happened to be in the same building that Baker Construction was located when Alan and I worked there. It just so happened that Alan was working in the neighboring building. He stopped by my office one day and had a nice 2 hour chat catching up on 30 years. He had a way of making me feel like it was just a couple of weeks that we hadn't seen one another. We moved our office just about a month ago where his company managed the property. I just happened to see Alan walking through the parking lot but unfortunately didn't have a chance to talk with him. Now I'm really sorry I didn't get that opportunity.

Alan was a great guy. My condolences to his family as I know you will miss him very much. Find comfort in the memories that you have of Alan. Those will live forever. God bless his family and God bless Alan. He will be missed by many...forgotten by none.

I met Alan when I was a sad security guard. He was a maintenance guy at the building I was posted. I started to talk to him from sheer boredom. I was just standing there watched people in and out of the elevator. We started to talk as he went by the elevator. First, just a hello then asking general maintenance questions. He was more efficient and quick than the county maintenance guy. Soon we learned that we had a lot in common. We hated and liked the similar things. And I liked making him laugh by complaining about certain things and making fun of people there. Also we were both craftsperson/ artisans. I was a laid off commercial sculptor and he was a glass artist. He refused to have online portfolio/ gallery of any sort like
any other craft person if this age and era. So I had to make him bring some of his art works to the job site. He did beautiful works and told me many anecdotes regarding him being craftsperson in this town. I ended up buying a piece for my wife. He invited me to art/craft fair that was held in
town once a month during the summer. He let me put some of my works to sell there. I didn't sell anything but I enjoyed hanging out with him outside of the work environment. He looked like a grumpy man if you don't know him , but he had big heart and big smile. He bent some rules of the building for me quite often. He helped me out here and there. He really was a great friend to have. I was blessed to have known him. I really enjoyed chatting with him, complaining about the work in general. I missed doing that when I left the place due to the crappy security guard company losing out the contract there. But I kept in touch for a while. I was planning to see him at those monthly craft fair thing this spring. It really sucks to know that I could be er catch up with him anymore.
I will miss his laughter most of all.
