Alan Dale Chavers

Tribute

Alan Dale Chavers, age 59, died unexpectedly on November 17, 2020. Mr. Chavers was born in Foley, grew up in Fairhope and was a resident of Silverhill.

Alan loved family. He especially enjoyed spending time with his kids and grandchildren. He loved the game of golf and enjoyed a round as often as possible. He was known by his family for his spontaneity-often surprising them with an impromptu weekend road trip. He loved the beach and almost any water activity. He became a swimming pool builder, something that had interested him since his teen years. He enjoyed working at his property, cutting grass, keeping the pond clean, and keeping up with how big the fish were getting. He loved his pets. He loved being with his wife. He loved life.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Mary Marie Chavers Williams; father, Edwin Junior Chavers; grandson, Phillip Wayne Edwards and brother-in-law, Donald William Phillips.

Alan is survived by his wife, Lori Ann; children, Chris (Lauren) Dedrickson; Joey (Lisa) Amerson; Christopher (Ashley) Edwards; Kimberly West and Alex (Maggie) Chavers.  Also surviving are his siblings; Marie Phillips; Tony Chavers; Deborah Mazzei and Ashley Hoven; Seven grandchildren, Evan, Kenzie, Josh, Donovan, Fer, Abel, and Ally-Blair; his special friends, cousin Ray Keith Jernigan and golf buddies, Robert Fisher Love, Scott Clark, Ray Butgereit and his special pets, Clyde, his rescue kitty and his dog Angel, who he affectionately called “Squirt.”

A visitation will be Sunday, November 22 from 1:30 until 3:00pm at Hughes Funeral Home in Daphne. The family asks in lieu of flowers you send notes of encouragement.  Please wear a mask if you plan to enter the funeral home.  Expressions of condolence for the family may be made at www.hughesfh.com.  Hughes Funeral Home of Daphne is assisting the family.

    Alan was my first friend and neighbor, when we moved to Fairhope. He always seemed to bring a room “up”, just by walking in. Always a positive influence, and as genuine a friend as you could ever have.
    With Alan, we were truly blessed with one of the “Good Guys”.

    Lori, I am so sorry for your loss. Alan lived life to the fullest and loved you, the family and friends. May God be with you and family through this time. He was such a help to me when Joey died. He went with me to the store to get groceries and supplies for all Frankie and Ray’s friends who would be visiting. I am here if you need anything.

    Aunt Lori,
    I am very saddened to hear the news of Uncle Alan’s passing. Stay strong and know how loved you are.
    I wrote a poem when Uncle Steve passed and I wanted to share it for Uncle Alan too.

    = It’s Beautiful Here =

    I hope that through each memory you see,
    The beauty we all have seen with you.
    As the flickering images race through your mind,
    Like an old movie reel at a drive-in theatre,
    I hope you think;

    ‘It’s beautiful here.’

    Because when all is done,
    And you are gone,
    It will be darker, gloomier,
    And far less beautiful here for the rest of us…

    …But every time I think of you,
    And the memories flood my mind,
    I’ll forget to live in the present,
    And embrace the past.
    I’ll smile in remembrance.
    And as I live with you again,
    I’ll take a deep breath, close my eyes,
    Take your hand, and tell you,

    ‘It’s beautiful here…’

    ‐——————-

    Love you and keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

    Alan will dearly be missed. Even though I haven’t seen him in a couple of years I’ve always considered him another big brother. His kind heart and loving soul will always be with all of us. Sending hugs prayers and love during this time. I pray God gives you and your family strength during this time.

    Lori,

    I’m very sorry for your sudden loss of Alan! I enjoyed working with him and I could tell he held you in high esteem as he always talked about you and the life you had going together in such a positive light! He had a real contagious drive and a love for life. I look forward to seeing him back at it again when he is resurrected, John 5:28,29; Hosea 13:14. I know these loving sureties from our God Jehovah, along with other beautiful words of encouragement from his Word, like, Psalms 55:22; 1 Timothy 1:10 will warm your heart now, and fuel positive thoughts toward the wonderful future that is waiting for Alan, and the rest of us, it’s just around the corner! Warm Christian Love, Your Brother, Lance Lamb and Family.

    Lori and family, I am so sorry for the sudden loss of Alan. May God surround you with the love of your family and help you get through the coming days. I went to Fairhope schools with Alan and always counted him as a friend. Even though I haven’t seen Alan in years, I can tell from all who know him well, that he was a great husband, father, grandfather and friend. I will be praying for you all.

    To all who have posted their support, condolences, sympathy and love for our family, we are deeply grateful. At a time like this, it helps so much to know that we aren’t alone. In the resurrection, Alan will be happy to know that we were cared for.
