The Passing of Treksearcher
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 am very saddened to hear this. May he rest in peace. My sympathies to his family and friends.

Everywhere around this burg they're running out of verbs, adverbs, and adjectives. Everywhere around this town, they're running out of nouns.

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.
