    Tracy and Family-

    I was devestated to hear of Allan's passing. He was a wonderful man and had a tremendous amount of knowledge in the aggregate industry. Though he was delt many struggles and endured a lot of pain, he rarely if ever complained. Allan was ALWAYS eager to get up no matter his physical condition and go to work to provide for his family.

    He will be missed by many!

    All of you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
