    We visited with Alan each week of the 20 months we lived in Sedro Woolley and have visited with him on the phone since we moved. We really learned to love and appreciate him, and we miss the visits. He was truly a good and kind hearted man who loved his daughters and grandsons, his siblings and their children. We are happy for him to be free of all of the earthly trials he has had to endure, and we are certain that he is happy with loved ones on the other side of the veil.

    Love and sympathy to his family at this tender time. John and Trudy Van Cott (Senior missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints)

    I lived across the street from Alan and his family as a child. I babysat his girls and help him after his accident.
    You will be missed.

    Our prayers are with your family and loved ones.

    Nicole & family-
    Alan was resident at Creekside when I met him. The front desk receptionist would have me deliver packages to Alan’s apartment. Alan was always kind & very upbeat. A true gentleman , I shall miss him.
    Sincerely- Joanie
