With a heavy heart I need to announce that my beloved husband Alan F. Holmes passed away on Wednesday, May 29, 2013. Life lost a truly great man, husband, father, brother, grandpa, and friend. He proudly served the United States Air Force for 22 years and one day. Traveling to Italy, Greece, Turkey and all over the United States. He thoroughly enjoyed his coworkers at Quantech Inc and Northrop Grumman. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He enjoyed ATVing, cooking (hot wings), spending time with our friends and family, and everything NASCAR, and the LA Raiders. He is survived by his wife Tina, daughters Cristi (Mike), Nicole (Brandon) and Audrie. Brothers Homer, Carl (Carol), Fran and Bobby. Sisters Susie (Rick), Terri (Spike), Crissy and Kim. Numerous nieces, nephews and grandchildren, and not to forget his four-legged buddies, Taco, Mandy, Duke and Missy. Services will be held on Saturday, June 8th at Bethel Lutheran Church, 4925 Farmingdale Drive at 2:00pm. A reception will follow at Bethel Lutheran. The family would like to thank all of our friends for the generous support and kindness during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions be made to the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region.
