Allan was a classmate of our son at SHS and they played baseball together. We spent many hours on the bleachers watching them play and Allan was a very spirited player and showed his example of good sportsmanship. It is obvious from reading about him on Facebook and in his obituary that he made great use of his time on earth. He was a great asset to his community and will be missed by many.
