Allan was the favorite, easy-going family member. He was an avid sports fan who shared his passion for the Atlanta Braves and the UGA football team with his son, grandsons and friends. A devoted and loyal man, he was a true southern gentleman. Allan always made sure to show, through his thoughtful actions, his immense love for those around him. To Allan, no one was left unnoticed or uncared for. His door was always open, and his table was never too small. For Allan, helping others was never a burden, but a natural way of being. He took so much pride in his family – his children, grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, cousins, and friends – and will be missed by them all.
