He was educated in Wicomico County Schools, graduating from Parkside High School in 1982 and Salisbury University in 1986. Alan worked at WALMART as the Photo Lab Manager for several years, but shortly after graduating college, Alan became a fixture at the Wicomico Civic Center box office in a part-time capacity before coming on as the full-time box office manager in 2002. He loved this job and the ladies that he worked with, he considered them his family.
Alan began participating in 4-H competitions at the Wicomico Farm & Home Show at the age of nine, and was involved with the Fair ever since, having served as president, past president and as a member of the Board of Directors.
Alan was well-renowned on the regional Fair circuit, bringing home numerous awards and trophies for his entries, which included canned and baked foods as well as his beautiful candy that he created.

While growing up Alan was busy with cub scouts, 4-H, school activities, and UMYF. He was a member of St. John’s United Methodist Church.
Alan’s family was his life and he enjoyed each and every moment spent with them. He was especially devoted to his mother and father who he adored and chose to take care of them by moving next door. His family is comforted to know that he is now reunited with them in Heaven.
