    I am deeply saddened to learn of Alan’s passing. He was a caring friend and enriched the lives of all he came across. Even in the toughest of situations, he had a charm that could touch a stranger and quickly bring a smile to their face. I first met Alan when he started at Glaxo in 1986 and enjoyed becoming his friend as he grew his role there into an international expert in clinical shipping through industriousness and passion for his work. He also shared with many passion for the arts, music, fine foods, wine, Formula One racing and natural settings. Alan was a true romantic with a gift for adding the thoughtful touches that made life special. He was very generous with his time, feelings and thoughtful gifts and had a playful spontaneity that led to many Don Quixotesque adventures. I feel blessed to have been a part of some of those journeys and to have been invited to experience the Impressionist settings along Cane Creek and Trout Run. I will always remember his passion for life and his willingness to go the extra mile for others.

    I am so terribly saddened to hear of Alan's death. I have known Alan for over 15 years. He was a very sensitive man and I always felt he honestly cared about his friends and their families. He taught me so much about wine and that was something he truly loved and loved to teach people about.
