Alan passed away on Christmas Day, Tuesday, December 25, 2007, with his wife, children, and brother by his side after a long and courageous battle with colon cancer. Throughout this past year as he fought this horrible cancer, he also lived his life to the fullest. He and his wife traveled to Spain, Germany, and Baja, celebrated his daughter's high school graduation and his son's completion of Air Force Basic Training. He continued to coach for the Clovis Girls Softball League, as well as serve on the Clovis Bullets Board of Directors. He also traveled to Oklahoma City, Ft. Collins, San Francisco, and San Marcos to visit his children. Alan love to travel, spend time with his family, drive his new Mustang and partake in many adventurous activities such as scuba diving, backpacking, water skiing, snow skiing and camping. He was a man who enjoyed working with his hands as a general contractor and loved to teach the trades to anyone who wanted to learn. What Cancer Cannot Do It cannot cripple love. It cannot shatter hope. It cannot corrode faith. It cannot destroy peace. It cannot hurt friendships. It cannot suppress memories. It cannot silence courage. It cannot invade the soul. It cannot steal eternal life. It cannot conquer the spirit. Alan leaves behind his wife Linda; daughter, Kristina; son, Keith; daughter-in-law, Sarah; son, Christopher; daughter-in-law, Shannon; son, Scott; daughter, Kelsey; mother, Elsie; brother, Neil; sisters, Sandy and Sharon; and dog Lucy.
