Alan D. Debolt

January 30, 1950 - February 22, 2014




DEBOLT, ALAN D., SR.; February 22, 2014; at age 64; after a brief illness.

Alan was born January 30, 1950 in Wyandotte to Clarence and Florence Debolt. He graduated from Taylor Kennedy
High School in 1968 and began proudly serving his country in the Army where he would serve as a combat medic
in Vietnam in 1970-1971. A fixture in recent years at Myers Lake United Methodist Campground in Byron and at PKSA Dearborn,
he will be sorely missed by all those that affectionately called him "Uncle Al". Being a proud member of the Vietnam Veterans
of America Chapter 267, he leaves behind scores of war brothers to remember him. He is also survived by his beloved wife
of 14,116 days, Debra (Schofield); his son, Alan, Jr.; sister, Jean; brother, Tom; and "furever" friend, Sassy.
Waiting with open arms to greet him in Heaven were his parents; sister, Carole; and brothers, Glenn and Gary.

Hackett-Metcalf Funeral Home, 2640 Monroe Blvd. (near W. Outer Drive), Dearborn.
