Alan made his home in Carson City, Nev., and spent most of his life giving back. He owned and managed a Foster Care Facility and cared for countless children. He also mentored other foster parents.

Alan enjoyed spending time with his family, friends and playing his guitar. Alan had the greatest sense of humor. He laughed every day and encouraged others to laugh as well. He will be missed by all.
