Sending my condolences and love to Alan's family. My heart breaks....Butch will be missed greatly. He was a great friend and brother-in-law. I loved his visits to PA with us and it was very special when Chuck and him would visit Later it was just Butch that visited. We would go to Orlie's and have a Blue Moon with a slice of orange and toast Chuck. The world has lost a dear friend and leader, mentor in Butch. I know you are with Chuck and Chris (Chuck's brother and my late husband)...

This is heartbreaking news. Butch holds such a warm spot in my heart. Loved working with him; loved just being with him during his time in Nebraska. So deep and authentic...a dear man!

Dear Jeanie, Chuck, Janet, Jamie and family, I would like to extend my deepest condolences at this time of great sadness. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Alan, Tom and I sang in a trio in High School in Nebraska and performed in various venues. He was a wonderful, funny, talented and gifted friend and will be missed. The class of 1964 is now much lessened. RIP Alan. Ken C.

Our thoughts are with all of Alan's family now during their time of grief and loss. Hopefully your reflection on Alan's life brings many good memories. Sending love and hugs!

Alan was always friendly and super nice to me, a faculty person way across campus in the School of Art. I enjoyed learning about upcoming shows from him and serving on several committees together. He improved the School of Theatre, which continues to grow with newer faculty.

Praying for Dr. Nielsen's family. I enjoyed being a part of SFA School of Theatre and working with him for fourteen years. Extend my Sympathies to the family.
