Alan was a graduate of Kirkman High School, and he was a member of the New South Daisy Baptist Church. He retired from the Chattanooga Gas Co. He was a beloved husband, father, and grandfather. Alan was a man of great strength and integrity, and he spent most of his life taking care of his family. He battled cancer on and off for almost 30 years with courage and grace. He loved spending time in his garden and playing with his grandchildren. His smile and infectious laughter will be greatly missed. But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isiah 40:31)
