Alan was a graduate of Langley High School. He was a huge fan of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Steelers, and Penguins and also loved watching WWE Wrestling. He enjoyed special occasions when he got to see the WWE live with his brother-in-law, Rich. He spent quality time playing video games and reading comic books with his nephews. Alan lived his life with special needs but never let his disabilities hold him back. He "Did all the work" cleaning with his mom for many years. He was his mother's legs carrying laundry up two flights of stairs. Alan took the bus to work at the Horne's Warehouse in Crafton. He then continued his employment running the stock at Gordon's Shoes in Bloomfield. Alan loved to walk to the corner store to buy the daily paper and play the number for his mom. He always made sure to pray for the health and safety of his family and friends on a daily basis. Above all, Alan loved his family deeply, especially his "Brother Paul" who he continued to remember and recognize all through his 12+ year battle with Stage 4 Alzheimer's Disease when all other memories slipped away. While Alan's quality of life had diminished as the years went on, we now know he is at peace and will be sorely missed by all who loved him.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the SZAFRANSKI-EBERLEIN FUNERAL HOME, INC.
Visitations are private.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in the Marian Manor Chapel. Following Mass, Alan will be laid to rest with his dad, Jack, in Saint Martin Cemetery.
Alan was a resident of Marian Manor for almost 12 years where he was well loved and developed early friendships with many staff and residents. Alan's family would like to thank the staff there, many of whom have become like family, for their compassion and care and invites them to attend Alan's Mass.
