Dear Grumpy.
You where the nicest and the most thoughtful person I’ve met, you always pushed us all to be the best of our capabilities and to be the best person we could be to others. You showed me the way to motorcycles and I haven’t looked back yet, ever since I was young I’ve always wanted to be on a big Harley just like you and dad, that was my dream. I’m just sorry that you won’t be able to be here to see it, you watched me grow up into the young man I am today grumps and I just wish that I’ve made you proud. You’ve taught all the grandkids so many life lessons and we are all very grateful for you and Grans time you’ve put into us over the years and what great years they where. From shooting my first gun, riding around on the quads, going for afternoon swims in the pool to even waking up early to go to the farm. Those where the best just having that one on one time with you. Those are the times I will miss the most, I will love you forever grumpy and I will push myself everyday to be the man you taught me to be.

David and I are very sad to hear of Alan's sudden death - and the grief and sadness being expreienced by our extended family members. We remember him as an energetic character and know he was a huge influence for good on the lives of our daughter-in-law, grandchildren and son. We extend our sympathy and love to Alison, along with Mandy, Jason, Sloany and families at this very sad time, and know that Alan will continue be in their hearts and lives forever.
