Our Deepest Sympathy to the family of Allan. We had many fun nights watching Gibault Basketball together. Irene and Allan were huge Hawk fans and were always so sweet to our sons when they played at Gibault. Later I would see Allan at Schnucks in Columbia where he was always busy but never failed to say Hello.
