Alan Otto Oines Obituary
Alan Otto Oines was born October 12, 1987, in Fairbanks and passed away unexpectedly March 21, 2011.
Alan loved playing baseball, hockey and spending time with family and friends. He was a quiet guy until you got him alone or in a small group; he became the laughter of the party. His impersonations, jokes and sense of sarcasm will forever be remembered and missed. He could always find the funny moment in any conversation.
Dale and Kelly moved their family to North Pole during summer 1994. Alan started first grade at Ticasuk Brown, where many of Alan's life-long friendships began. This was when he and his "brother," Ian Mabie, began their life journey as best friends. Alan attended grade school, middle school and graduated high school in with these same friends and many more.
Alan was quite the athlete. He decided one day after watching the "Mighty Ducks" that he wanted to play hockey. He was excited to get started and began playing competitive hockey at age 9. He continued playing comp, in addition to playing for the North Pole Patriots all four years of high school. His first love was baseball. He started at 4 and played every summer through high school. Baseball is what took him to Skagit Valley in Washington. Through his sports, he traveled many times to events, tournaments and camps. The summer after college, he assisted with a summer baseball camp and enjoyed a new level he had yet to experience: teaching younger children about the sport he so loved.
In addition to his sports, Alan enjoyed many outdoor activities: golf, baseball, hockey, football, fishing, riding seadoos, snowmachining in the mountains with his dad, family ski trips and playing video games with his friends. 
In August 2008, Alan met the girl who would change his life forever. In January 2009, Lillian was born and Alan was excited to be a part of her life. On Dec. 1, 2009, Alan was overcome with joy when his daughter, Rylee, was born. Becoming a father gave Alan a new level of maturity and purpose that would help shape him into the father he was becoming. He really loved those girls and was proud to be a father. 
Alan had been working on Fort Wainwright for the past year. He started as a cook at the bowling alley, moved to the golf course then settled in at The Zone for the past 8 months. He enjoyed what he was doing and the friendships he made. 
Alan's amazing personality, goofy sense of humor and infectious laugh has left many of us with amazing memories, that we will hold in our hearts forever. 
Alan leaves behind many close friends and loving family who will miss him dearly. He is survived by his parents, Dale and Kelly Oines of North Pole; sister and brother in law, Sharita and Zeb Mabie; nephew Daimin Rogers of North Pole; daughter Rylee Smith of Fairbanks; grandparents Don and Angie Oines of Fairbanks, Keith (Pete) and Teresa Mitchell of Lewiston, Ind.; aunts, uncles and cousins David and Deena Oines and family of Wasilla, Donna Oines and family of Fairbanks, Dan Oines of Fairbanks, Floyd Mitchell of Minnesota, Scott and Dottie and family Mitchell of Washington, Michael Mitchell and family of Anchorage, Cindy Conley and family of Fairbanks. Alan is preceded in death by his grandmother Reva Oines and Uncle Terrance Reese.
Funeral services will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, March 28, 2011 at Friends Community Church with Pastor Jeff Wall officiating. A viewing will be held from 5-6 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations will be accepted for Alan's daughter Rylee Smith at Mt. McKinley Bank.
