Alan M. Kahn, age 77, of Skokie.
Beloved husband of Kathleen; loving father of Myra (John) Patyk, Jeff (Jenny), Holly (Paul) Jin, and Joe (Kris); cherished grandfather of Johnny Patyk and Lukas Kahn.
Nothing was more important to Al than his family. He was Kathy’s devoted husband for more than 53 years. Traveling frequently for a great part of his Sales & Marketing career, Al spent his free time sharing in the hobbies and interests of his family. Al was a member of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and taught boating education. He enjoyed a long retirement – traveling, relaxing in the sun, spending weekends at “The Little House,” eating out with friends, and smoking fine cigars. A man of few words, his dry sense of humor made people enjoy his company. Generous almost to a fault, his contributions and support of others will likely never be realized – but that was not important to Al. He just wanted to make sure everyone had what they needed, and then some.
Funeral Services are private.
A Celebration of Life will be held on a future date.
Contributions in Alan’s memory may be made to NorthShore University HealthSystem Foundation (foundation.northshore.org), 1033 University Place, Suite 450, Evanston, IL, 60201.
