Alan was a good friend in elementary school. He used to let me deliver newspapers with him occasionally. He was always very skilled mechanically. I remember him building an electric guitar for a classroom project in 6th grade.

Darcy, Don't even know what to say. I always liked Alpal and he was always good to me. He was like one of the family around the garage for many years. I'm sorry things did not workout differently for him. He will always be remembered as Alpal from Poor Bob's garage.
Take care, Peg
