Alan Douglas Beers entered this world on December 2nd, 1962 in Sullivan, Missouri to Alfred and Margaret Beers of Steelville, Missouri. He left this world the way he would have wanted it, peacefully in his sleep on the night of February 23rd, 2022 at the age of 59 years.
He grew up in Steelville, Missouri and graduated from Steelville R3 High School in 1981. He dedicated his heart to the Lord at a young age and attended the First Assembly of God Church where his mom and dad took him and his siblings every Sunday. In his younger years he and his family took many trips to Colorado, the Missouri State Fair, and spent a lot of time with their relatives both near and far.
His first job was working at Spare Rib, his parent’s restaurant they owned and operated in 1976. He also worked at Sinclair gas station, the hardware store, and a heating and cooling company. He worked in St. Louis and was a member of the Carpenters Union and would commute back and forth every day. He also drove a Cains coffee truck during the early 90’s. Then in 1993 he and Joanne owned A&J Family Restaurant in Cuba, Missouri where they spent 4 years working side by side serving their community and making the best homemade food in town. They sold the restaurant so they could spend more time with their family. Then Alan started his own construction company, ADJ Construction where he built countless single and multi-family homes. He was a hard worker, even when he wasn’t on the clock, he would always be doing something.
He was a good ole` country boy; enjoyed hunting, fishing, being in the outdoors, fried catfish and taters, taking the backroads, listening to the radio, and camping with his family. He loved playing washers, going to deer camp, fishing trips with his buddies, and playing the bass in a band. He loved country music and rock’n’roll: Vince Gill, Journey, The Eagles, Carrie Underwood, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Sammy Hagar.
He was a huge fan of Missouri sports, both professional and collegiate, particularly the St. Louis Cardinals Baseball, Kansas City Chiefs Football, Mizzou Basketball and Football, and NASCAR. He mostly enjoyed listening to the games on the radio.
He is preceded in death by his grandparents Roy & Alice Britton and parents Alfred and Margaret (Britton) Beers.
He leaves behind his middle school sweetheart and wife of 40 years, Joanne (Weber) Beers of Steelville, Missouri, his oldest daughter Jodi (Beers) Hanchey and son-in-law Ryan Hanchey of North Palm Beach, Florida, his youngest daughter Amy Beers of Kansas City, Missouri and his favorite daughter…one spoiled rotten golden Labrador, Ellie Mae Beers, of Cuba, Missouri. He was a girl dad and they will all miss him beyond measure.
He will be deeply missed by his younger brother Jerry (Shelley) Beers of Steelville, Missouri, older sister Sheila (Beers) Anderson of Steelville, Missouri; many nieces and nephews, cousins, and some very dear friends.
