He could walk into a room and fill it with peace and tranquility. He was kind, and never met a stranger. He took the time to speak to everyone. Alan loved his family and hoped that peace and tranquility would remain with all of those who loved and looked up to him. He was generous with his time, never in too big of a hurry to stop for a kind word or deed. Alan loved meeting and making new connections. Helping those in need was his priority.\n\nHe loved the "cowboy way" and working outside. He also loved animals, especially his dog, cows, horses, and chickens. He always had a dog by his side, but he loved all animals, especially horses. Alan liked roses and red cardinals.\n\nHe was a Godly man. His love of Jesus Christ shined through every part of his life. He would have wanted the light that he showed to brighten the lives of everyone that he met. Alan wanted his family to always look to God and to trust in His Plan. Alan was one who never got upset with life and wanted his family to trust in God's Will for their lives. In other words, he would grab life by the horns.\n\nOutside of his relationship to Christ, Alan's most important relationship was his Holy union to soulmate, Debbie, followed by the birth of all his children and grandchildren.\n\nAlan was more than excited for the construction of the First Baptist Church of Pottsville. In fact, he helped to break ground for the building. He would have wanted each and every person to pay it forward and to shine God's Light to everyone that they met in both word and deed. Alan would have wanted everyone to not be tearful for he has gone to his True and Eternal Home.\n\nThe family would encourage memorial donations be made in Alan's name to the building fund of Pottsville, First Baptist Church, for the completion of the new sanctuary complex Alan was so excited about and dedicated to.\n\nHis internet obituary and online guestbook are available at www.humphreyfuneral.com.
