Alan Frank Purington passed away on Sunday March 12, 2023. He was born in Mannheim, Germany on December 19, 1961 to Margot and the late David H. Purington.
Alan graduated from Denbigh High School in 1980 and earned his Bachelors degree in history from CNU in 1984. In his work life he remained devoted to history as a maintenance supervisor for The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation for 22 years.
