Alan was a lifetime resident of Gray's Creek Community and long-time member of Mount Pis gah Baptist Church. He loved "the Creek» and the people of Gray's Creek loved him. Many said he was the honorary "mayor" of Gray's Creek. Alan retired from a long career with Phillip Morris Company to live out his dream of catering BBQ for his church, friends, and family to honor special times in their lives.
