July 24, 1961 - February 22, 2022
Alan J. Morrill Jr. passed away on Saturday, February 26, 2022, at Strong Memorial Hospital, where he had been transferred for further care following bypass surgery on January 18, 2022, at St. Peter's Hospital. He was 60 years old. Alan was predeceased by his parents, Alan J. Morrill, Sr. and Marcia (Weis) Morrill. He is survived by his wife of 24 years, Cindy, and his two fur babies, Willie (Swan) and Gray. He is also survived by his brother, Mark, Mark's wife, Michele and their son Tyler; and his brother, Michael, as well as a host of caring friends, many of whom have been close since childhood. Al graduated from Bishop Maginn and attended college for a short time while employed at the Nelson House, where he managed the food service and supervised the kitchen. When Nelson House closed in 2003, he started his own company as a self-employed contractor. He had many clients who have become friends, and he only needed word of mouth references to keep him very busy. He always tried to take care of his customers to the best of his ability, and he was honest and very knowledgeable. He could fix just about anything. Al had a great sense of humor and was the life of the party. He could tell a story like no one else and could leave the room in tears of laughter. We tried to get him to do more writing but couldn't get him to put more down on paper. He was a great cook who loved hosting his friends for meals and parties. Al was a wonderful husband, brother, uncle, brother-in-law and son-in-law, and he would do anything for his friends. We are all devastated by this loss and are heartbroken. He's left us way too soon. We will always be grateful for having him in our lives, and we'll never be the same without him.
