Alan Jay Field was born on May 1, 1959, in Waco, Texas. He was the second son born to C.T. Field and Belva Curry Field. The family moved to Bryan shortly after Alan’s birth, and that is where he spent most of his time on this earth. Alan worked in several retail positions throughout his life, beginning at Safeway in Bryan. He later worked for Office Depot and HEB, which took him from San Marcos to Carthage, Texas, where he was in both company’s management programs. Alan loved school during his adult life, attending Blinn College while working in Bryan, where he earned an Associates Degree. Alan worked for Phil Thweatt Wrecker Service for several years as the AAA Service Technician, even after his battle with cancer began. When he was physically unable to continue in that position, Alan continued to work for Phil as an evening/weekend dispatcher for as long as he was able. Alan often talked about how he hoped to feel good enough to once again work for Phil.
Alan enjoyed playing pool, which he became very good at, entering and winning tournaments throughout his life, and making many friends along the way. He also loved nature and had a green thumb, growing many beautiful flowers and plants. Alan built and grew a small sanctuary in his back yard for birds and squirrels, and took many wonderful photographs of the animals enjoying the space he created for them.
Alan was married to Kim Jones, and together they had a daughter, Rachel Rene Field. Some time after divorcing, Kim and Rachel moved to New Mexico. Alan enjoyed traveling to see his only daughter in New Mexico, where his first grandchild, Oliver Mikhail Field was born. Rachel later had a baby girl, Evelyn Rose Luna. Alan loved his grandchildren and cherished his moments with them.
His father, C.T. Field and his best friend in the world, Randy Ball, preceded Alan in death. He is survived by the mother of his daughter, Kim Morgan, his daughter, Rachel Field, his grandchildren Oliver Field and Evelyn Luna, his mother, Belva Field, his brothers, Larry Field and wife Holly, Terry Field and wife Maria, Randy Field and wife Carla. Numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews also survive Alan.
