I have known Alan all my life since we were little children we all played outside and everyone had to go in early. You are my friend my neighbor and even my employer at one time when you had me working at the Postcard Factory which I truly enjoyed heck out of we really had a good time there.

Your entire family has always been such a good neighbor to us the Stewart's I will always remember you and your good nature you will be missed. Until we meet again please rest in peace.

My early memories of my big brother Alan include the sound his metal cleats made as he ‘clanked’ his way across the parking lot asphalt, and then across the concrete sidewalk, on his way to play Pony League baseball at Hollyfield park. It was a very distinctive sound. I remember when Alan was 15 he worked at Mayfair Market by Burk’s Restaurant in Norwalk, and they made him dress in a bunny costume for Easter. One of his first cars was a 1966 Ford Cougar with hide-away headlights (a BIG DEAL at the time). When I was 16, he gave me my first car. It was a 1964 Dodge Dart for which he paid $250. I don’t remember why Alan did that for me, but maybe it was just something he thought a big brother does for a younger sibling. I don’t remember if I every thanked him. I hope I did, but if not, let me say it now… thank you Alan! Alan wasn’t much of a sports fan. This was to my benefit. When Alan became a warehouse manager for a Lighting Company called Halo Lighting, he would get free tickets to sporting events, and because I liked sports, Alan would give me the tickets. I went to many Ram football games, which was great, and I even went to one playoff basketball game between the Lakers and the Utah Jazz. I sat in the 7th row, directly across from Jack Nicholson. Though Alan wasn’t into just about all sports, he did love poker, especially Texas Hold ‘em. He liked to play at the casino or at a table at a friend’s house, including the homes of fellow Moose Club members. He also liked playing digital poker on his phone. He was good and he won many games, but even if he didn’t win he was always happy to play a game. I remember seeing Alan smile as he played and that is the smile I want to remember; the smile of my big brother Alan.

Alan was my very dearest brother. We did everything and anything together. He enjoyed going to breakfast every Sunday, either at the Moose Lodge or the American Legion. He Usually picked up the bill. We went to Las Vegas on Amtrak once. it was so much fun. He was always in my life. When I was in the hospital a while back he visited me every day along with our mom. He was always thinking of others. He was my big brother and I'm so saddened to loose him. I will never forget him and I will honor him by doing as he did; living life to the fullest and being a happy person. I'm going to miss him. I love you Alan.

Alan was my brother and the oldest of the five Chinkin children. All through my childhood and as an adult I cannot remember a single time I ever saw Alan get mad. He always took things in stride and used humor to defuse a situation. As the oldest child, Alan was the first and only Chinkin child to be taught to drive by our dad, because Alan drove the family station wagon into a tree totaling the car, and our dad refused to teach the rest of us. After our dad passed away, Alan became our mom's BFF. He looked out for her, took her to bingo and even worked at the bingo parlors while she played the games. He was a good son and a good brother.
