Alan "Al" Curtis Malone

September 23, 1957 - March 11, 2019

Alan Curtis Malone of Dallas, Texas passed away on March 11, 2019 at the age of 61.  He was born at Langley Air Force Base, Virginia on September 23, 1957 to an Air Force family and consequently moved frequently.  Al lived in Virginia, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Colorado, Oklahoma and Texas.  He graduated from Del City High School in Del City, Oklahoma in 1975 and then the University of Oklahoma in 1980.  Al owned and operated Lawn Ranger Landscaping for the past 25 years in the Dallas metroplex area.  He was a sports expert and huge OU and Mavericks fan who was known on local sports radio shows as “Al from Prosper” or later as “Al from the Metro”.  He loved animals and always found room for another stray cat or dog.  Al loved life and lived it to the fullest and he always had a positive attitude.  He shared the last fifteen years with the love of his life and soulmate, Bertie Ward. 

Al had some close scrapes with death while growing up, nearly drowning twice, once hijacked by hitch hikers in Houston and then surviving a heart attack last year.  The good Lord finally called him home after struggling to regain his health.  He will surely be missed by all that loved and knew him. 

Al is survived by Bertie Ward of Dallas, Texas; his mother, Margarette Olive Malone of Del City, Oklahoma; his sister, Beth Garrison of McKinney, Texas and Ed Garrison of Mesquite, Texas; his brother, Mike Malone and wife, Judy of Oklahoma City; and many other loving family members and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, William C. Malone.

A funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Friday, March 15, 2019 at Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow Funeral Home, 2525 Central Expressway North, Allen, Texas 75013.  Interment will follow at Ridgeview Memorial Park.  The family will receive friends during visitation Thursday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the funeral home.
