Date of Birth: February 13, 1954
My wonderful husband, Alan, enjoyed a quiet life with his family. He was a devoted father to our children, Jill, Mark, and Melissa, taking pride in all of their accomplishments and sharing in all of their hopes and dreams. He always had time for coaching and advising all of their sports and academic endeavors. There wasn’t anything that he wouldn’t do or sacrifice for all of us. We all had a cherished relationship with him, which provided us with wonderful memories. He was the head of our family sharing in all of our joys and helping solve our problems. Alan was the most honest and straightforward man I ever met. I admired his intelligence, determination and strength of character. He always made me feel at ease. Alan enjoyed a sarcastic sense of humor and strong work ethic. He valued honesty and truth. Although he was shy and quiet he had the ability to laugh at himself.
Living in Allentown, Pennsylvania, he probably had the longest commute of all the Cantor employees. He traveled by bus daily to Wall Street while listening to jazz c.d.s or reading. He called me every morning by 7:30A.M. from his desk to ay “hello” so we could start the day together. After that he’d either talk to the kids or e-mail each one before tackling his work. I looked forward to hearing him say “Hey Babs!” when he came in the door at night. He never complained that his commute was too hard.
Alan enjoyed a good challenge. He was a sports enthusiast and a walking encyclopedia of sports trivia. Priding himself as being health conscious he exercised almost daily. He was working towards a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and enjoyed playing golf, which he studied like a science. Each year plans would be made to golf with his friends at Cantor.
We enjoyed quiet evenings together at home, listening to music, watching t.v., going to movies, taking walks, sitting on the beach, lounging by the pool, sharing a golf cart, and being with our children, family, and friends.
Alan was more than my husband. He was my best friend. His presence here at home is missed dearly. He will remain lovingly in my heart always and forever.
