Alan always loved warm weather and enjoyed golf. While in Arizona, he had many hobbies, especially riding the dunes!!!! In the later years, Alan became a snowbird, living in Arizona during the winter and in Minnesota in the summer. Wherever he lived, he was always surrounded by an awesome group of friends!! A few months before Alan’s passing, he was able to take a trip to Arizona and California and go for a big glamis trip and fulfill his dream of having a Buckshot!!! He was also able to spend a lot of time with his parents.
His kindness, intelligence, and sense of humor will be missed and his life was an inspiration to many.
