On June 19, 2018, we said goodbye to a son, brother, father, grandfather, fiancé and friend. Alan fought as everyone knew he would, to survive what he was dealt and cancer would not let him win. As a son, he loved his parents, as a brother, he was all you could ever ask for, as a father, he was a teacher, as a grandfather, always someone to look up to, he was the type of friend that would give you the shirt off his back, of course, it would be an Under Armour shirt. Alan was engaged to the love of his life, Vicki. Even before the age of 12, he always worked at being physically fit and later in life, he would win numerous bodybuilding competitions. His love of fishing started around age 5 and he fished right up to a few days before his death. There is a bumper sticker that reads “Fish Fear Me.” Perhaps they did fear Alan, that is, until they realized he always released his catch. He lived in Plainville, and New Britain, prior to moving to Savannah, Ga., with his family. Alan proudly served his country in the Army and also drove 18 wheelers for many years. He was a former member of the Teamsters Local 559 State of Connecticut and later with Local 728 State of Georgia. Alan always helped others and that continued in 2009, when he became a registered nurse, graduating from The College of Coastal Georgia. As an RN, he worked as a hospice nurse and later, was employed as an emergency room nurse at St. Joseph’s/Candler Hospital. Alan leaves his mother, Catherine Morin of Colchester, Conn., fiancée, Vicki Boguszewski of Savannah, Ga., daughter, Margaret Miller of Rincon, Ga., sister, Roxanne Corriveau of Colchester, Conn., sister, Audrey Boisvert of Buxton, Maine, sister, Kathy Azarigian of Chapin, S.C., brother, Albert Truslow of Southington, Conn., several grandchildren and many close friends. Condolences can be sent to the family by visiting Alan We Love You!
