Alan Vincent, 74, of Beaverton

Alan E. Vincent, beloved fire chief of Billings Township Fire of over 33 years, has passed away on Sunday, February 5, 2023, surrounded by his family and his friends in Midland, Michigan. He was born on April 28, 1948, to the late Robert and Gladys (Crosby) Vincent in Midland County. Alan served in the United States Army during Vietnam and received a Bronze Star for his actions preformed under fire. He worked at Vincent’s Service Station and was the owner of his own wrecker service before his retirement. Alan met and married the love of his life Carolyn Sandula and together they shared 50 years of love, laughter, and memories before his passing. He loved riding motorcycles, snowmobiling, and chasing the thrill of making sure fires got put out and helping his community in any way he could. Alan was a founding member of Billings Township Fire Department and served as a fireman there for 50 years and also served as Chief for the last 33 years.

Alan is survived by his wife of 50 years, his daughter, Traci Vincent, and his beloved cat, Hayden. He is predeceased by his brother, his mother-in-law, Claudine Sandula, and his father-in-law, John Sandula Jr.

A funeral service will be held on Friday, February 10, 2023, at 11 am at Lee-Ramsay Funeral Home-Gladwin Chapel with Chaplin Reed Shroer presiding. Alan will lie in state from 10 am until the time of service on Friday. Visitation will be held on Thursday, February 9, 2023, at Lee-Ramsay Funeral Home-Gladwin Chapel from 2 pm until 8 pm. Interment will take place in Highland Cemetery in a private ceremony with Billings Township Fire Department in attendance. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the family.
