To Alan.   One of THE funniest people I have ever had the pleasure to know.   Your presence is missed.

Allan, I am so sad to hear of your passing. I remember playing together after school when we were at Taylor - many afternoons wasted with HO slot cars in the attic at my house. You were quite a guy even back then. Rest in peace Allan.

Allan Gold was a wonderful, warm, smart and very funny guy. I think about him every day. He was a great influence on my life and a dear friend. - Larry Weissman, Atlanta

Does anyone know what caused Allan's death?  We were neighbors from 4th grade on into just before high school.  I re-connected with Allan about a year or so before his death and then tried to reach him a few times until I found out through another former neighbor of his passing.

We spent a lot of time together growing up playing sports on our street or in Cain Park, bicycling all over including out to Chagrin Falls and Pundersen, playing army and other similar games when we were younger.  We spent many summer nights tent camping in each others back yard, building, racing, and crashing many go-cart contraptions and in the winter building snow forts, having snowball fights, and sledding through the trees in Cain Park near Goodnor destroying many sleds.

Through elementary school all the kids on our block had a strong close friendship and we spent a lot of time at each others homes or out playing.  Allan was really a lot of fun to be around.  He was not shy around the girls once we got into Jr High probably because he had older brothers we all looked up to.

My last conversation with him was about how he had found happiness again with a former classmate he re-connected with at the last reunion.  Since I'm a '74 grad I don't remember nor did I recognize who he was referring to.

Allen, you went to soon and those of us from the old neighborhood who have stayed in touch or reconnected through Facebook and other means still remember the fun times growing up together and the crazy stuff we did, some that can't be posted here.  You're not forgotten my friend. RIP
