William (Alan) Arrington died peacefully with his wife by his side on Wednesday October 26th after a two-year battle with cancer at the age of 59. Alan is preceded in death by his parents Eleanor Bartelson Arrington and Louis G. Arrington of Houston, Texas. He is survived by his wife Mary U. Arrington of Conroe, and two brothers L. Arden Arrington of Bourne, Texas and Daren Arrington of Rochester, New York. He is also survived by four nieces and numerous cousins. Alan, a native Houstonian was born June 22, 1957 at Memorial Hermann Hospital. He was an avid sportsman since childhood and enjoyed spending his leisure time hunting and fishing with friends and family. Alan worked as a Petroleum Geologist for Noble Energy for 18 years. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Geology from Stephen F. Austin State University in 1980 he went to work for CNG Producing Company in New Orleans. He worked there until he felt compelled to return to Houston after his father was diagnosed with cancer in the late eighties. He then took a position with Energy Development Corp. in Houston, Texas and stayed with them when it was acquired by Samedan Oil Corp. Samedan Oil Corp. later changed their name to Noble Energy Headquarters in Houston, Texas. Alan was known for his kind and generous spirit, helping many people throughout his life. He enjoyed mentoring future geologists and sharing his knowledge with young geologists that he worked with over the years. He was a loving husband to Mary for our twenty-one years and they shared many interests together. Alan and Mary also spent much of their time traveling and traveled to many places over the course of their marriage. They've made their home in Conroe, Texas since 2003. A celebration of his life is planned in the coming months ahead.
