Alan Steward McLaurin age 77 passed away Friday, June 7, 2019 at his home in Rozet, WY. Alan was born on November 19, 1941 in Higbee, CO to Betty and Al McLaurin. Due to family changes, Alan’s sister, Jay stayed with their mother and Alan went to live with his Aunt Grace and Uncle Newt in La Junta, CO where he dropped out of school in the 3rd grade to help work the family ranch. When he turned 15, he went to California and enlisted in the US Army. He was honorably discharged when friendly fire destroyed his ear drum and left shrapnel in his gluteus maximus. California was also where he met the love of his life, Bobbi. Together they built a life traveling to rodeos, training horses, raising cows and Al worked construction as his main trade. In 2000 he moved to Wyoming with his wife, daughter and son-in-law. In 2008 he enjoyed the birth of his one and only grandchild, Trena. In 2010 Al was diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer, which he beat! “Cowboys never weaken” he would say. Al had many hobbies including, teaching kids about ranching, roping, fishing, and building bits and spurs. He loved to rough house with all the neighborhood kids; keeping their minds busy and keeping them out of trouble. The ranch he ran was the community hang out for all of the kids. He lost the love of his life in February of 2018 and he slowly declined from there but he vowed to live to their anniversary date of June 6th. Cowboys never weaken! Good Ride Cowboy! Good Ride! Alan is survived by his daughter, Shauna; son-in-law, Matt; granddaughter, Trena; and numerous extended family and countless friends that would take YEARS to mention by name. He is preceded in death by his parents, and wife, Bobbi. Memorial and condolences may be sent in care of Gillette Memorial Chapel 210 West 5th Street, Gillette, WY 82716.
