Alan lived the majority of his life in Houston, Texas where he met his wife Ellie and was an English teacher for Stevenson Middle School.

Alan loved being a teacher and educator, and was lovingly known as Mr. K. He took great care in his students education and it was important to him to instill his love of the English language and literature.

Alan was a man of strong faith. He attended Second Baptist Church, where he acted as a Deacon. He provided many services for the community as well as the members of the church.

Alan had many titles in his life, from Son to Brother, Teacher to Deacon, but his best role was being a husband and father. He was a lover of all kinds of music and was an avid collector of books. He enjoyed many sports including baseball and basketball, but baseball was his great love.

Alan is preceded in death by his father, Irvin Kammeyer (2004); his mother, Valona Kammeyer (2021); and his nephew, Joshua Henson (1993).

The family has chosen to have a private grave-side service for immediate family. He will be interred at the St. Paul Cemetery, Sunman Indiana on April 27th 2024.
