Alan Robert Truitt, 54, from Draper, UT, passed in peace on November 1st, 2018 in Miami, FL of a sudden heart attack while asleep.
He was born on September 29th, 1964 in Oakland, CA, yet bragged about growing up in Memphis, TN. Alan was born to William Gene Truitt, Sr. and Mary Alice (Waggener) Bergstrom. Alan was the youngest of their 3 children. He, sister June (Truitt) Holt and brother William Gene Truitt, Jr. were inseparable as children.
Alan was married on June 8th, 2003 in Utah to Andrea Bosnich Truitt. He is the proud father of Sophia Anna Truitt (14) and Kyle Alan Truitt (10).
Alan worked for Teleperformance for 18 years as their Worldwide Chief Business Development Officer. He traveled the world helping companies establish best-in-class customer experience management for their customers. He was a dedicated, spirited and admirable leader who truly loved his positive impact to the company's growth and success, and cherished each friendship built with colleagues and clients.
But more than anything, he loved coming home and being with his family. Alan was active in the children's school and sports activities. He taught them the love of music and chess, and debated with them to hone their critical thinking skills. They kayaked and surfed in the ocean, hiked, camped and went four-wheeling in the summer, and skied and snowboarded in the winter. Demonstrating by example, he showed that life is best lived at its fullest.
Alan was the epitome of boundless energy and tireless enthusiasm. He worked hard, lived hard, played hard and loved hard, and the sudden passing of one so full of life is especially unfathomable. Alan was a loving, gracious, generous man to all who had the good fortune to cross his path.
The service celebrating Alan's life will be Thursday November 8th at The Garden Place at 2601 E Sunny Side Ave, Salt Lake City 84108, 801-582-1847, with Viewing at 4:00 and then Service at 5:00. Minister and close friend Randy Clay, who married Alan and Andrea, will lead this celebration of life. Alan's 2 favorite songs, Amazing Grace and Gabriel's Oboe, will be played by members of the Waterford School Ensemble.
