I only found about this tragic loss today, I met Alan when he coached me for my BASI instructors course and had it not been for him I dont think I would have carried on with it as a career, his sheer enthusiasm and passion for sport was impregnated in myself.
He was a truly amazing and fantasticly professional individual in every way, but also a nicer man you could never meet.
One of the few that no one could dislike.
A true loss to this world. Farewell and Thank You.
