Our brother, uncle and friend, Alan Harper Baird, passed peacefully through the veil to reunite with his eternal family on March 12, 2020. Alan was born on June 5, 1948 as the first child to Harold Richard and Rose Harper Baird. Alan graduated from Granger High School and then served a mission in the South Dakota Indian Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He was faithful member of the Church and served in many callings. Alan served our Country in the U.S. Army and was later deployed to Desert Storm while in the U.S. Navy Reserve. He was a hard worker and retired from the VA Hospital. After retiring, he devoted much time as a church service missionary at the Magna Bishop's Storehouse.
