He was originally hired as a civilian employee by the Calgary Police Service and later as a sworn member in November of 1981. Alan enjoyed a 35-year career with the Calgary Police, retiring in 2016. During his career Alan worked in many areas, loved every day of his career and the people he worked with.

Al & Marg built a home in Cochrane in 1997 where they continued to live after retirement. They spent numerous hours looking after their large yard and always enjoyed having family and friends over for various celebrations. They travelled extensively, preferring Mexico and in 2022 Al, Marg, Jim and Trish travelled to Tuktoyaktuk with their trucks and trailers managing to achieve Marg’s dream of being there during the summer solstice, experiencing 24 hours of daylight, and standing in the Artic Ocean. They also enjoyed numerous camping trips & vacations together.
Alan and Marg were true soul mates, loved their family and friends, and were regular attendees at Calgary Police Veterans lunches every month.
