Not sure what to say?

I was new to city planning when I met Al Feldt at Cornell--teaching with Bill Goldsmith he made urban and regional theory fascinating for me. He also helped me get a summer job in Washington, D.C. at the Institute for Creative Studies--what would be seen as a paid internship today. While I was not a great CLUG player, the team in Washington tried to find ways to use gaming simulation to assist communities under the Model Cities legislation to understand the consequences of changes to their...

We should all in the simulation/gaming community be grateful for Al's immense contribution, which helped lay the foundations of this vibrant discipline.

Al was a gentle and generous man - my few encounters with him endeared me to him.

I liked the obituary that he himself wrote.

He was a true humanitarian.
Rest in peace.

My memory of him is like him: vivid, vital, and larger than life.

I knew Allan from gatherings of Hearing Loss Association of America/Michigan. I send my condolences to Allan's belovedschildren, grandchildren and great grandchild, along with his long time partner and friends and students.. Allan brought a gentle, intelligent and unique presence to the meetings where I observed him.. I surmised we shared similar world views and senses of humor, in addition to both being hard of hearing, though we never shared much one on one conversation.. What a giant...

His memory will definitely be for a blessing... worked with Al in the early 70s as an editor- a truly fine human being.

Way back in 1980, I engaged Allan as a consultant in Michigan National's successful effort to organize a new bank in Ann Arbor. He was very knowledgeable in his field and a great guy with whom to work. I've had only one contact with him since those days, but remember him well. It's striking how some personalities stick with you. My sincere condolences to his family on his passing.

We shall remember Al with great fondness, admiring his vast intellect and constant inquiring mind. His humor, jokes and limericks were extensive, though not always politically correct. We called him on his naughtiness. Al was always ready for a hand of Whist at the dining room table or a perfect Manhattan at Knights. And everything reminded him of a song! Al was a treasured friend.
