    It was with great sorrow that I read of Alan’s passing. I worked with him for so many years when I did events at the Civic Center. He always made me smile and I learned so many things from him, not only about the ‘innards’ of the Civic Center but about life as well. He was a friend and he will be missed.

    Prayers of peace and healing to the family and those who miss him.
