I first met Allan in 1971 over a cup of coffee in an old fashioned diner in Manhattan. He, Doug Jeffers and myself were going to be the future icons of the VO industry, or, so we thought and we had so much to talk about along with our contagious enthusiasm. Allan was so generous with his wit, sensitivity and kindness and I shared the fact that there was an agency looking for talent that I had heard about and would call on his behalf to get him started. In those days there were limitations on talent from Canada working in the USA, but, what the heck, he needed a push and I was able to do the pushing.
Eventually, Allan did become an icon in the industry, but he was so much more. He was a dear friend to me.
Fast forward. Having beaten two cancers of my own, a quadruple bypass and many other medical adversities in the last few years I had recovered enough to visit him at the assisted living home he was staying in downtown. I brought him a "dozen" bagels and we laughed our heads off wondering how we got so old so fast. He, like myself faced many health adversities through the 45 years of our friendship, but, we always found time to laugh.
After an operation I had in Jan 2017 the doorman in my building called up to say that Mr. Allan Blevis was here and could he come up. I told him he'd better come up or I'll find a broom and fly down and get him myself. Well, that was our last get together in this world and I think we both knew it.
So, to conclude I wll say this to you, Bear. Hold a place in the studio of the Gods for me. We'll laugh again...I promise!!! Oh, I'll bring the bagels.

Alan was an exceptionally sensitive and caring person. He had a beautiful voice and was an amazingly creative talent. I enjoyed working with him as a producer over many years. He was a truly good man, and he will be missed.

Although it is almost 50 years ago when Alan joined us as a section head at Camp Northland in Haliburton, Ontario (a job he knew nothing about), among us old camp staff, he is remembered for his laugh, his irreverence, his bridge playing and of course, his voice. Four of us played bridge together for a year or so after that summer and I can still remember his claim to fame at the time: "Canada Dry, the champagne of ginger ales." He was not forgotten. My sympathies.

As a childhood friend of Alan Bleviss, I received great hospitality at the Bleviss home in Edmonton Alberta.
I received a great deal of kindness from Alan's mother and father Joseph. There was a great deal of friendly interaction with Alan's younger brother Morley and younger sister Sharon. I recall many happy winter days in the Bleviss home. Those days will never be forgotten. In later days at Bonnie Dune high school, in a production of Arsenic and Old Lace, Allan played a rambunctious Teddy Roosevelt and I played the investigating inspector. It was great fun and I think it was the beginning of Allan's interest
In drama as a career. Peace be with you Alan.

Alan worked on a theatre production at the Factory Theatre in Toronto in 1972 that I produced. He was a wonderful, rich presence in that show, and though I haven't seen him since that period, his warmth remained with me, and from reading occasional Facebook posts, I felt continually connected to him. Such, I'm sure, was the nature of his presence everywhere. To his family, I am very, very sorry for your loss. I know he will be missed by so many.

Dear Josh, Lisa, and Sarah,
I had the tremendous priviledge to work as one of Alan's NY agents, many years ago. He was incredibly loved and respected by the entire industry- at every level. He was a gifted talent, and magnificent person.

I had the tremendous priviledge of working as one of Alan's NY voice agents...many years ago. It was an honor to participate in his enormous successes, and he was incredibly kind, generous,as well as respected and talented.

We are saddened to hear of Alan's death. As cousins we enjoyed his company when he came to Montreal.Like everyone else we will never forget the "voice" as well as the personal contact.

My heartfelt condolences are sent to his family. In addition to being an incredibly talented voice performer, Alan Bleviss was one of the kindest, most generous people I knew. We worked together early on in my career. It was on his recommendation that I was brought to Canada to work at the Talent Group. My life in Canada, my agenting career, even meeting my future husband - all because of Alan. Today the earth is just a little greyer for his absence...my prayers are with you all.
