From Alan's family
Early yesterday morning we said goodbye to our wonderful Dad.
Many of you will not be aware that he was sick, due to the fact that he was a very private person, but unfortunately he fought and lost a very rapid battle with Cancer.
He went very peacefully under the care of the fantastic doctors and nurses of the John Radcliffe, and Ella and I were able to go and say our goodbyes to him there.
Alan's family asked if I could tell about his death on the websites he loved so much, I did. I wrote back:
Here you can see and find the in Memoriam for Alan:
I hope it gives some support with the loss of Alan.

His daughter wrote to me:
Jos Lemmers, I've had a read through all of the comments on these pages.
It's clear that my dad had a big online presence and reached many people across the world.
Thank you for sharing those with us.
