LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. — Alan Sanford suddenly passed away at 63 years old on Saturday, March 29, 2014, in the care of the good people at Hope Health Care Services in Lehigh Acres, Fla. Alan was surrounded by his wife, Sabrina, and his loving family.

Growing up on the family farm in Pierpont, Ohio, he took great pleasure in that during the last eight years, he was able to retire as a resident of the same community.

Preceding Alan in death was his beloved father, Raymond Alan; and beloved nephew, Christopher Kimbrew.

He had come to make many friends at the Kingdom Hall and had come to have a special relationship with his heavenly Father, Jehovah.
