Mitchell continued to be their home. Alan was a working partner of Hollaway Construction, building bridges for thirty-nine years.
Alan’s passion was his family - his children and grandchildren were a great joy to him. He loved to work on his yard and spend time outdoors. Snowmobiling in the winter; boating and church league softball in the summer. Alan and Denise enjoyed traveling together and with friends. His favorite destination was the Cayman Islands.
Alan was diagnosed with two types of lung cancer in July. Alan will be remembered as a great man, a devoted husband, a loving father, and a best friend to many people.
