Alan passed away Oct. 5, 2019. Alan said it best, “I guess I finally reached the summit of a long life, I thank the Lord for much activity. I can only hope I gave more than I took. The mountains always provided me with spiritual enlightenment. I want to thank my soulmate she placed light back into my life. She brought me happiness and supported my spirit and soul. We didn’t have enough time together to paint the total picture but we sure tried. The pictures in our home show our many adventures and a life well spent.”
Alan was born to Thomas and Maryjean Freitas on June 1, 1948, in Benicia, California. He loved his mother very much; she was his light in life and death. He is survived by his wife, Linda Williams Freitas; daughters, Natalie and Ryan, and Jessica and Clay, with grandchildren; step-daughters, Christy Rivers, Kelli and Chris Koer, Lisa and Casey Dorman, with grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Alan enjoyed time spent with extended family, Brent and Sherrie Williams, Steve and Shelly Williams, and their families. His mother-in-law, Barbara Johnson, he adored and shared many adventures. He was preceded in death by Skip Johnson, Janice Freitas, and Bob Williams. It was Alan’s request to be laid to rest in all of the beauty of the trees and wildflowers at Silver Fork Lake, sitting on a bench to enjoy the lake, moose, and where he found serenity. What he will miss most is Linda’s smile.
