Obituary

Affectionately known by his family as a “professional micromanager” Alan was a man who had precise way of doing things and strongly encouraged his family to do it that way also. Throughout his life Alan had several things which were important to him. First, his love of auto racing where Alan could be found driving #54 at the local dirt tracks, especially Crystal Motor Speedway and Mt. Pleasant Speedway. Second, his love of farming. Third, he loved to tinker and build things, sometimes out of necessity other times because he could. Fourth, his truck driving career, which truth be told, he did to pay the bills to support his farming and racing hobbies. Finally, and most importantly, Alan loved his family and enjoyed being around them and spending time with them.
