Name the states you've lived in:

Well, let's see, there's Texas and, uh, oh yea....on an almost continual basis...Denial

Grandchildren:

Yikes! As of 12/14/2010 we are official members of the Old Farts club. We have our first grandchild, Kadence Nicole Raymond, quite possibly the most beautiful baby girl ever. I'm stoked!

She's now 4 and even more awesome than ever.

What do you do in your spare time?

I'm big on motorcycles these days. Back in May I rode to Miami FL for a business meeting and on out to Key West, it was a great trip with 2 different eleven hundred mile days. In April 2012 I rode my BMW to NYC for a meeting, then made a loop up through all the New England states.

What would we be surprised to know about you?

That I'm currently Board chairman of an international company called Brazil Iowa Farms. It's not that big of a deal, but it sounds cool.

Share your memories of THS (secret crush, embarrassing moment, favorite hang out, best friend(s), favorite teachers):

I'd be much too embarrassed to share that.
Favorite hangout had to be dip street. Best friends were Tom Hickman and Gary Carlisle and strangely enough, my favorite teacher had to be Mrs. Simmons.

What's the farthest you've been from home?

I've traveled fairly extensively in Brazil and Chile from western Mato Grosso to Salvador on the coast of Bahia. In December 2012 we traveled to the southern tip of South America, spent a week in Patagonia and made it to Punta Arenas, Chile on the Strait of Magellan. That was 600 miles from Antartica.

Do you still see/talk to/hang out with any classmates? Who?

Of course.

What did you always want to do that you haven't done yet?

Ironbutt motorcycle ride from Prudhoe Bay to Key West. The current record is 85 hours

Do you still have family living in Tulia? If so, who?

I have a few cousins that are still here.

Alan was always ready with a rye smile and a gentle nature that belied an inner strength. I enjoyed the times we ran into each other over the years. My sympathy to his family during this time of loss. He was a good man.
