Alan "Al" Covey

July 28, 1944 — June 11, 2023


Alan (Al) Covey of Bullard. TX passed away peacefully on June 11, 2023 at home surrounded by his loving family. A devoted man, Alan leaves behind a legacy of compassion, strength and unwavering support for those he held dear. We believe that Alan has rejoined his beautiful and beloved bride Elizabeth (Liz) Covey (Barham) and they are once again dancing under the stars in heaven. Here on earth their presence will be dearly missed but our faith rejoices that they are together and at peace.

Alan was born in Coldwater, Michigan on July 28, 1944. He loved his home state and his Detroit Lions. He remained a true fan his entire life. Alan was joined in marriage to Elizabeth Covey on December 25, 1995. Alan enlisted in the Navy branch in 1962, honorably serving his country. He was a businessman who had a true entrepreneurial spirit and engaged in many ventures during his lifetime.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Elizabeth; father Ralph William Covey Jr; mother, Beverly Elane Bakeman (Bell); step-father, Harry “Coxy” Bakeman; grandfather Clark Bell and grandmother, Marguerite “Gigi” Free Bell.
