Alan graduated from Dean College and went on to earn his BFA from The School of Visual Arts, majoring in photography. Alan’s other passions included tennis, fishing, hockey, lacrosse and boating. Alan was a long time member of Noroton Yacht Club.
Alan’s two greatest accomplishments in life were his children whom he loved dearly. He coached many of his son Scott’s hockey teams and introduced his daughter, Charlotte, to lacrosse, which she played at the collegiate level.
Alan is remembered for his caring nature, his genuine compassion for others and of course, his dance moves.
