Allan James MacEachern of Leesburg, FL passed away peacefully at home with his beloved wife by his side on Saturday, April 21, at the age of 82.  Allan resided in North Kingstown, RI before relocating to the Plantation at Leesburg 14 years ago.  He was employed by the United States Postal Service as a letter carrier for 33 years; was a Staff Sergeant serving in the United States Air Force during the Korean War and received an Associates Degree from Johnson & Wales College.

    Dear Allan, you will be missed so very much. Our lives were so touched because you were in them. As an uncle, my children could not have been happier with you. You showed them such love, attention and respect. There was no one like Uncle Allan, from the time they were little until today as grownups. You played such a special part in their lives. As a brother, Bob, Pat and I hit the jackpot. As a son, Mom and Dad could not have been more proud of you, of what you were and what you accomplished. You were my rock, my dear friend, my confidant, my everything. We are such a close family; I don't know what we will do without you.
    I can just picture the smiles on all your faces, you so deserve your peace and happiness. Love, hugs and blessings, dear ones.
    MARY BLUE HEWITT, WICKFORD, RI
