Alan was born September 20, 1944 in Danville Illinois.  He was the son of Mary Margaret (Galloway) and Ernest Moudy Jr.  Alan grew up in Covington and was a 1962 graduate of Covington High School.  Following high school, Alan pursued a career in agriculture at Michigan State University, where he graduated in 1966.

Alan worked his entire life in the agriculture industry and retired from Ceres Solutions in State Line. Indiana.

Alan was a talented woodworker and enjoyed crafting in his wood shop. He enjoyed fishing and boating, his yearly trip to Canada with the OHB men, gardening, mushrooming, watching birds, watching westerns, fixing and repairing old tractors, but most of all, spending time with his grandchildren.  He was known to them as Big Papaw and Pop Pop.

Alan was a member of the Perrysville American Legion and the Fountain County Old Guard Post 2395.  He was a member of the Wabash Valley Steam and Gas Club and the Illiana Antique Power Association.
