  1. Forever in our thoughts. Rest in peace Alan.

  2. A very special man who helped in the start to my rotary journey

  3. Through thick and thin, you were our rock,
    with jokes and laughter, you’d often mock.
    But beneath the jest, your love was clear,
    Support unwavering year after year.

    We miss you already and the silence is real,

    Rest easy now Dad, over time our hearts will heal.

    Jen X

  12. Hey Dad I remember like it was yesterday the first time we met and from that moment you have always treated me like a son. Thank you so so much for always looking out for us through the good times and the challenges. I will miss the dinners around the table with lots of banter and laughs and good chats. I will miss the chats about what’s happening in the F1 or the Supercars. I will miss the times at home helping out with whatever you needed and shooting the breeze. Thanks so so much for being a great dad to us and a Pa to Sierra and Cooper. We will all miss you so much. Hopefully we will meet again some day mate. Vic

  24. RIP Alan such a sad loss,started my first job with Alan and Robert milking cows and working on the dairies and caravan park they taught me so much, in those days there were only three of us to run the caravan park and the dairies we worked hard and had a lot of fun as well, my last conversation with Alan was only a few ago I new he wasn’t well but this has come as a shock to me I will miss him greatly as I do with his brother Robert

  25. Your laugh has not changed through the years! We called you Uncle but to my family you were so much more, no matter how long the time between seeing you! RIP uncle Alan x

  26. Met you only briefly on your visit to our home when it was Stef’s home too . I am sure you will be missed by many…..include me too ! RIP mate !!!

  27. We will miss your jokes and laughter.
    You were always welcoming and I know Mum and Dad loved having you over at the caravan. RIP Uncle Alan.
    (Nee Tate)

  28. You took on a couple of green young kids as contract cleaners, moulded us into park managers and made us believe we could be park owners. You were a mentor, gentleman, father figure to us all and a huge part of who we are today. Our entire family are blessed to have had you in our lives.
    We all now wrap our broken hearts in all the wonderful memories you leave us with.
    Fly high in peace, take the chequered flag one more time.
    We’ll see you on the flip side.
    Our Love always
    Jase, Lea, Tirah, Claudia, Shona, Val, Baz, Kirrily and family.

  29. Very sad news. Will be remembered always. Mavis Hall and Vicki Fieg.

  30. Have great memories of Allan in the early day in the car club and many nights at Kay Carrick coffee lounge after a few beers at the Grand Rest in Peace Allan.

  31. I have so many memories of working with Alan, like the time he took me on a quick trip around East’s Beach in the SLR 5000. I am sure we were above 80 kph heading to the garage doors at the old house.
    Last time I saw him he said I had been spending too much time in the good paddock, unfortunately, that has continued.

  32. I have many happy memories of times we all spent together but what I remember most and so fondly is your laugh. It was the sound of joy. Rest easy now 💔

  33. Thanks Uncle Al!
    From being the key influence for my love of cars and v8 holdens, to letting me be part of your Motorsport family in the 12hr. Learning how to work hard on the rubbish run at Umina to the Laughs and tears shed at family catch-ups.
    Thank You
    You will be missed

  34. Saying good bye to a great man like Alan is heart wrenching. But in a way I feel closer to him now being in South Africa. I feel his presence more than ever. His beautiful soul is everywhere. I can feel him, hear him and it makes me smile to hear his infectious laugh. He and his family made my time in Australia so special and I thrived being a part of such a wonderful family. His adoration for his children was palpable and his love for Stef reminded me of the love and relationship with my own Dad. I wish I could take your and Shaun’s and the rest of the family’s pain away, Stef. He does live on in all of you. Live your lives to the fullest knowing that is what he would want. Rest easy my Aussie Dad and see you on the other side❤️

  35. The Lilly’s team will miss you Alan. Who will order the BLAT now with your glass of wine?
    Rest now mate and we will miss you

  36. A lovely man with such a jolly laugh & smile! Many fond memories of caravan parks, family holidays & race meetings. Rest peacefully Alan xx

  37. You were a hard task master also gentle and fair we had many head butts but many more laughs Thanks for being part of my working life it was a great family at OB RIP Big Al ♥️
