"It was with much sadness and a sense of loss that the ninety members of the Mapleton Men's Shed learnt of Alan's passing away.
Al was a most popular member who other than being a skilled tradesman and mentor also had wonderful personal attributes of kindness, welcoming to one and all, always ready to hear someone's story and a wicked sense of humour.
Although not much older than me, I always thought of Al as cutting a father like figure at the Shed and is someone whose wisdom that I have personally sought on a few occasions.
The members of the Shed extend their deepest sympathy to Margaret and all the other members of the family.

Alan was a very dear friend from the time I was 15 and he was 16. A lot of things have happened since that time but time and distance never affected our friendship and I always knew that if ever I needed a friend ( and there were many times over the years ) he would always be there if I called. We went through many good and bad times together and I am heartbroken to think that he is no longer with us. Goodbye dear friend.

I liked Alan a lot. He was a good, genuine bloke. My condolences to his wife and family.
Go in peace, Alan.
