Picture of George Alan Smith.

George Alan Smith (Alan) of Boston, Lincolnshire has died at the age of 89. A married man, he leaves a wife, 2 sons and daughter in laws, 5 grand children and one great grandson.
Alan served in the Royal Navy for 6 years during world war two, part of that time he spent escorting the merchant fleet across the north Atlantic. Alan was a founder member of the Boston Royal Navy Association and served seven years in the Royal Fleet Reserves.
He became a Postman for 36 years until he retired in 1983.
Alan always had an affection for the sea as his main hobby was having a boat, which he ran out of Boston mainly to catch shrimps in the wash. After that he then started long lining off the Lincolnshire coast. He then purchased a beach hut at Sandilands, where the whole family spent many a happy hour. Needless to say fishing was still on the agenda, passing his knowledge on to his grand children.
