Alan was in the prime of his life when he unexpectedly and suddenly left behind his two young boys and his beautiful wife.

On Tuesday, 15th of October, Gwenda lost her husband, and father to their two children, suddenly and without warning. Alan was the best of the best; a man of integrity, with the biggest and most purest heart. Funny, witty, generous, kind, loving, always thinking of others; but above all, always putting his family first. Alan was extraordinary and anyone who knew him would agree that it was an honour and privilege to know someone so awesome. Al and Gwenda were two peas in a pod; and in this time of sudden and unexpected grief, Gwenda and her two children need all the help and support they can get. I know if the tables were turned, Al would be there doing and giving all he could, and then some! This page has been set up to support Gwenda’s boys Oli and Scott, in the hopes that it may somehow help them in this time of great loss.
