Alan worked for several years as a teacher before starting his own online educational company specializing in children’s games. He was a generous benefactor in his community, donating countless hours in service. He loved running, mountain biking, electronics, cars, pizza (which he made in his own wood-fired oven), his home, and traveling the world.
But Alan’s biggest passion in life by far was his family. He is also survived by his parents, Alan and Gail Tortolani; his grandmother: Sophia, his parents-in-law: Emilio and Marie, sister Christina Tortolani; brothers-in-law Seth Schulman and Tony Schiano; sister-in-law Linda Schiano; nieces Giuliana, Sofia, Stella, and Michaela; nephews Emilio and Marco; and many close and cherished friends. He lived a rich, full, and happy life, and left this world wrapped in the warmth of his family and close friends.
