I hate to post this but I learned today "Treksearcher" has passed away today. Many of you know Alan from being a dealer at Memorabilia and other shows. He also came to the Philly Non-Sports Card Show in May of 2012. Alan was a very nice guy and it's really a shame to see him leave us. He'll be missed.

Below is a photo of Alan from the November 2011 Memorabilia show.

He always had time for me, even when I wasn't buying. When you think of the thousands that go to the SDCC, what were the chances of us bumping into each other in the zig-zag queue. Well, 2009 was that chance. Rest in peace, Alan Angel

I met Alan for the first time at Memorabilia in November last year, I only spoke to him briefly, but he was a nice and enthusiastic collector/dealer.

As I've read above, I understood he got married recently. I am so sorry for his wife and family.

alan was laid to rest today , there were some lovely words said by the vicar and by alan`s family , they gave a mention to all the kind messages from all the non sport people both on here and on the face book site.
I have to say it was a first for me to see a full colour enterprise engraved on the name plaque on the coffin a great and fitting tribute to a life long trekkie and sci- fi fan. RIP ALAN FROM EVERY ONE WHO KNEW YOU.
