It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our son and brother, Alan F. Kaminsky on November 4, 2020. Alan lost his battle with cancer after years of trying very hard. Alan was born on July 16, 1959 in Hartford, CT, the son of Edward E. Kaminsky and Beverly. Alan loved the outdoors, especially Kayaking in Coventry Lake and Biking. He loved watching his favorite News Channels and he loved all animals with a special hug for Symba, and not the least of all, the Web Cam at Hampton Beach, where he spent many summers when he was young. Alan is predeceased by his father Edward E. Kaminsky, his brother Ronald J. Kaminsky and his nephew, Nicholas Kaminsky. Left to grieve his loss are his mother, Beverly J. Hyde and brothers Gerald E. of Vernon, Robert P. of Las Vegas, Nevada and Edward L. and his wife Helen of Las Vegas, Nevada.
