Alan was asked to share a life lesson.
“Being born during the baby boomer generation we were expected to ‘live to work.’ Not necessarily a bad thing… but remember to enjoy life and build relationships because life is short.”

What is he most passionate about personally?
Living life to the fullest! Live, love and laugh! The future for my kids, grandkids and great grandkids.

Taking care of what God has entrusted to me! Stewardship.

What makes Alan unique?
I like simple – no frills – straightforward. I also enjoy a challenge and am very optimistic.
