He was born December 23, 1956 in Dunkirk, the son of Charles P. Alaimo and the late Mary Jane (VandeVelde) Alaimo. He attend Dunkirk and Fredonia schools, and graduated from Fredonia High School. Alan was a 37 year employee of Red Wing in Fredonia. Also a longtime active member of Christ Community Church in Fredonia, and a Life-Member of the Fredonia Beaver Club, (member number 007). He was an avid bowler and die hard Buffalo Bills fan. Alan was an old time movie buff, as he enjoyed the Turner Classic Movie (TCM) channel and the Fox News station.
Tim Hortons was one of his favorite places where he enjoyed a good cup of coffee and his many friends there. He was a loving and devoted son and was proud that he was able to assist his father, Charles, by being able to drive him around town. Alan was known for his dry wit and great sense of humor. Never one to dwell on his life’s challenges, he would joke about his peg leg, telling people that he “Worked at Ihop.” He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, son and brother. Above all, he loved Jesus, and would often ask people he met if they “Were saved?”
