May the friends and family of Mr. Truslow find comfort in the Bible's promises that soon, "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5:28, 29), and "[God] will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." (Revelation 21:3, 4). We can also rest assured that God 'will swallow up death forever, and He will wipe away the tears from all faces...for He himself has spoken it.' (Isaiah 25:8) https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/about-life-and-death/

I can't believe there comes a time such as this that we have to say goodbye to our loved ones, but I do believe that we will see one another again. Alan was one of a kind and he was a super father to my dear friend Maggie and Jeremy, he was good at always keeping a smile too. I'll never forget 2008 when my mother was in hospice I ran into him and I thought how the heck does he look the same as he did 25 years ago, and still have that bright white smile too. I'm deeply saddened of the pain this has left his family and friends and I pray for comfort for each one of you. God Bless.....Love you Maggie ?

To The Family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Alan. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. (Please read) May God give you and your family comfort in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again as Jesus promised us that there will be a resurrection.

Alan and I worked together at St. Joe’s ED a few years back. I was a new nurse at the time. When I was questioning my abilities, Alan always let me know that I was doing well and that I had a bright future ahead of me. He also was one of my favorite coworkers to talk to because we always made each other laugh til we were both almost in tears. I’m gonna miss you Alan. Much love and rest easy man.

It was always a joy when we always ate breakfast after a long shift in the ER at Memorial. Alan is one of the techs/nurses that inspired me to go back to school and get my degree. I will always remember those days and the conversations between us about life, where it had been and where it was taking us, at the table every weekend. I will truly miss you, my friend.

I met Al at the Pooler YMCA. He quickly became my friend, coach, mentor, and training partner. Al’s passion for fitness was like no other. He would push me to my limits supporting me and encouraging me to do my best. He helped me gain the confidence that I never knew I had. He believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. He was truly an amazing man and friend. So sorry for your loss. Always keep his memories alive. Rest In Peace, dear Al.??

July 24, 1956 – June 19, 2018

 On June 19, 2018 we said goodbye to a son, brother, father, grandfather, fiance 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 Georgia 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 Connecticut, fiancée Vicki Boguszewski of Savannah Georgia, daughter Margaret Miller of Rincon Georgia, sister Roxanne Corriveau of Colchester Connecticut, sister Audrey Boisvert of Buxton Maine, sister Kathy Azarigian of Chapin South Carolina, brother Albert Truslow of Southington Connecticut, several grandchildren and many close friends.   Condolences can be sent to the family by visiting www.foxandweeks.com  Alan We Love You!
