Alan Leverett, 68, of Richland, WA, died on September 17, 2021, of heart failure. He was born in Corpus Christi, TX on April 27, 1953, to Harold & Helen Leverett, who pre- deceased him. Surviving family members include wife Dana Wood Leverett; children Amy Leverett Lowe of Justin, TX, (with husband Bryan Lowe, daughters Sydney & Tatum, sons Tanner & Seth); Scot Leverett of New Braunfels, TX (with wife Sarah & son Blaze); Faith Leverett of Richland, WA; sisters Jean Leverett Hughes of Pasco, WA, & Karen Leverett of Dallas, TX.
Alan was a 1971 graduate of Wylie High School, in TX, where he was active in football, basketball, & track. He attended East Texas A&M & worked in various high-tech industries during his career. With a generous heart, Alan was a volunteer at church & a grill master in his neighborhood. Learned from his mom, he became a musician who loved to sing & play the guitar. Learned from his dad, he became a craftsman who loved to build & make furniture.
Services will be held at LifeChurch7 in Richland, WA, on Friday, October 15th, at 1:00pm. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations in Alan’s memory be sent to Gideons International, an organization which provides Bibles free of charge to people all over the world.
We believe Alan would agree with this quote from Winston Churchill, “I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter!” Alan was a contradiction in terms — unrelenting, mischievous, & your best friend.
Our love and prayers to the Leverett family in the loss of Alan.
Another Uncle Alan there will never be. All my love…until we meet again…
Missing my Uncle Alan, though thankful he is home in heaven with his Savior and I will see him again one day. I’m glad to know he is reunited with his mom and dad and other loved ones who have gone before him. I have fun memories with Uncle Alan and his mischievousness. He called one time when I was in middle or high school and said, “This is Pete’s Pizza” in a strange voice and said nothing else. I was confused that a pizza place would be calling and hung up, not knowing it was him. He called back and was laughing and was so surprised that I hung up on him. We ended up laughing about this incident for years! His lightheartedness, fun-filled and silly shenanigans brought laughter to others and will be missed.
Thinking of all family and friends during this time and praying for comfort for all.
Love and miss you, brother.
Rest In Peace dear friend!
Prayers for the family!

Alan was just a teen when we moved to Wylie and the Leverett home was always a favorite place to be. As a teen, Alan was very involved in the life and ministry of FBC. He was active in the youth program, every youth activities, youth choir, played the guitar and sang in worship services and what can be said about the trips to Glorieta, NM. Alan had a contagious, outgoing personality, loved everyone and everyone loved him. He went on to serve a brief period of time as youth minister. His presence will surely be missed.
Alan was always a fun and very sweet cousin. Had a lot of fun in Wylie back in the days of Kick the Can and Hide and Seek games. So blessed to have fond memories of growing up with wonderful aunts, uncles, and cousins…all governed by sweet Granny.
Prayers of comfort for Dana, Faith, Amy, Scot, Jean, Karen and your respective families.
I never saw Alan without an enduring smile on his face. We missed him so when he move from Pottsboro to Washington, where he was very happy, meeting his lovely wife and then starting a new family with Dana and their baby girl Faith. He still had great love for his other children as well. Who could not love Alan! Instead of being a nephew to Gary, he seemed more like a little brother. He will be missed by this family and all who knew him as he touched many lives in his lifetime. God bless his family and all who loved him.
I am thankful for my friendship with Brother Alan! He helped me get my first professional job at Collins Radio after I finished at TCU. Alan is already missed but I know I will see him again because of Jesus being Our Savior.
