Alan "Big Al" Balsley, 59, passed away on May 5, 2020, in California, MO.

Alan was born May 26, 1960, in La Porte, IN, to Ross Balsley and June (Noble) Shriner. He grew up in Hudson Lake, IN.

He worked at MFA.

Alan enjoyed camping, fishing, cooking (especially meatballs, those were his famous recipe) and he loved spending time with his grandchildren. Alan would help to get his grandchildren ready for Halloween. He was always the first to bring sugary treats, but his favorite treat to spoil the children with were the Flintstones pushups and Donuts. Alan was never too old to play tag, if that is what his grandchildren wanted to do. He lived life to the fullest with the people he loved the most, and of course he jammed out to Kid Rock every chance he got.

Survivors include 1 daughter, Tonya (Balsley) Heinen; two sons, Alan and Greg Balsley; grandchildren, Devin and Bradley Heinen, Natasha (Heinen) Frazier-Hires, Tristan, Talyn, Traye, Jordan, and Cody Balsley; and a great grandchilden, Holden Frazier-Hires; four brothers, Donald and Michael Balsley, and David and James Purnell and several nieces and nephews.

Along with his parents, Alan was preceded in death by a brother Robert Clarke.

A Circle of Life celebration will be held at a later date.
