We lost a Cougar Guy yesterday


Post by Royce » 28 Nov 2017, 05:47

Alan Easley passed away unexpectedly yesterday. He was President of the Lone Star Cougar Club. What a great guy, I cannot begin to tell you how hard he worked to make our club better. He loved his Cougars. We will pray for his wife Gail and their family, this must certainly be the hardest time for them. We are going to miss you Alan.

Very, very sad news - especially during the holidays.

Wishing Alan's family the best.

He will be missed. He was a great teammate on the Tulsa show in April. Prayers for Gail and the family.

I still can't believe it. I'd just spoken to him the day before. Damn it life sucks sometimes.

I only knew Alan for a couple of years but he went out of his way to help me so many times. What a giant heart he had.

Wow... That is rather shocking. Just had a conversation with him the 17th and sent him a blem bumper for his 70 driver. He was a great guy, very grateful customer that always had kind words. Royce, let me know how WCCC can help, I am sure there is some way we can help his family in the future.

Very sad news. I hope they have Cougars in heaven, all the parts are NOS and in stock all the time, and premium gas is 106 octane and $0.29 a gallon... Praying for his family.

Sad news. We met him in Dearborn and he drove US with his SUV to some meeting Spots. He was a very nice Guy. So sad....
