Alan R. Rotach (with his wife) was
killed on Dec. 20, 1993.
Alan Rotach was born on St. Patrick’s Day in Lyons, New York and was the first born son in a family of six sisters and three brothers. He worked with the New York State Department of Transportation for 14 years before moving to Virginia to enjoy the warmer temperatures and give his daughters better opportunities.
Alan’s whole world revolved around his family. His two daughters, Stephanie and Shauna were the light of his life. He was always planning family gatherings and celebrations to be held at his home. Alan would do anything for anyone, offering a helping hand wherever he could. He even ran for councilman in New York hoping he could help in some way by serving his county.
Alan was killed by a tractor trailer truck as he worked on a road crew on December 20, 1993, three months shy of his 40th birthday. Friends and family miss him so much. We know he is so proud of his daughters and thrilled with his 9 grandchildren: Brianna, Alyssa, Logan, Mia, Kenley, Caden, Alana, Austin, and Mary.
