I’ve met Alan at Redford high school and we were friends throughout our studies at Wayne State University. After graduation he moved to Halifax Nova Scotia He worked at the medical school. He was extremely active in the Boy Scouts and he became an executive after many years of service. In the 90s he moved to Toronto. He continued his work in the Boy Scouts. He was extremely funny and was a master storyteller.
