Alan Bates took his leave peacefully on October 2, 2018 wrapped in the everlasting love of his daughters and his one and only Elizabeth.
Alan is cherished by his three daughters who feel blessed to call him dad. He taught them to run, whistle, spit, do the swami dance, ski, sail, paint, state capitals, world history, how an engine works, how to build a fire, drive stick shift, appreciate classic rock music and root for Cleveland sports teams. Together they hiked the Long Trail, skied the Tetons and took road trips across the country. The memories, the stories and the love will be shared with generations to come.
