Mile 134: Alan P.
PROCTOR, Alan Member of a Santa Rosa pioneer family dating from the 1860's, died at his home in Palo Alto on December 8, 2014 following a long illness. Alan, aged 65, was a graduate of Rincon Valley Elementary, Slater Middle, Montgomery High, and Stanford University (where he received degrees in economics, law, and business). Alan spent his life cultivating family and community and working toward the greater good. Alan and Anne Coffey Proctor, his wife of 38 years, raised four sons, Christopher (Zuz), Haley, Devon, and Douglas, and built deep communities in Maryland as well as California. Alan fought for consumer rights and more effective government through a career at the Federal Trade Commission, ultimately serving as the agency's first Chief Information Officer. Alan was an entrepreneur and was active in local and state politics. An eagle scout, Alan was a counselor for three years at BSA Camp Navarro and had a lifelong love of California's wild lands. In spite of his years away, Alan always remained connected to Santa Rosa through his extended family and memories of strong friendships. He is survived by his wife and sons, his mother Dorothea, brothers Robert and David (Sylvia), and numerous loving nieces, nephews and cousins. His father, George Proctor, Jr., passed in 2006. Alan faced his illness with courage and dignity. He will be deeply missed. Private burial is planned in the family plot at the Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery. - See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/pressdemocrat/obituary.aspx?pid=173519065#sthash.LOLZ6fD0.dpuf
