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.”
