He was preceded in death by his grandparents, uncles and aunts and his beloved dog, T-Bone.
Alan was born in Medicine Lodge, Kansas to Jack & Barbara (Wedgewood) Joseph on December 6, 1961. He attended school in Eaton Colorado and Medicine Lodge High School.
He was a long-time heavy equipment operator and truck driver working in the oilfields of Colorado, Kansas, Wyoming, North Dakota, California and Oklahoma. Alan was known as a congenial, hard worker.
Alan was an avid Bronco and Rockies fan, plus rooted for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Alan enjoyed displaying his extensive James Dean memorabilia collection along with his many family heirlooms, knowing the history of all. He enjoyed sharing those stories with others and reminiscing.
He was fortunate to be close to both sides of the family growing up which instilled lifelong bonds that he cherished.
He kept up with family and friends by calling them out of blue to check in or “shoot the breeze” as he would say, unless it was a Bronco-Chiefs game, that rivalry call to his cousin was never missed.
Alan will be missed as a beloved son, brother, family member and friend.
A Celebration of Life will be planned at a future date.
