Alan was born in White Plains, N.Y., on Nov. 15, 1938, the oldest of two sons of Arthur and Dorothy Fisher. He graduated from Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains, earned a B.S. degree in psychology from Villanova University, and an MBA from City College of New York. Alan served in the U.S. Army at Fort Gordon (Augusta, Ga.), was honorably discharged in 1966, and served in the Reserves. Following university and living in Manhattan, Alan worked for several advertising agencies: Batten, Barton, Durstine & Osborn; Doyle, Dane & Bernbach; and Marsteller.

Besides his life with Carol, Alan loved Vermont, skiing, and his Brittany spaniels. After a friend invited him to a skiing weekend at Stratton in the 1960s, he was hooked, making it a regular winter weekend destination and eventually buying a house in Jamaica on Cole Pond, which he and his wife still owned at the time of his death.
