Alan was born July 26, 1941, in Moline to Alvin and Pearl (Bendt) Tebbe. He graduated from Rock Island High School in 1959.

Alan served in the US Army from 1960 to 1963, where he acquired Signal Corp and Electronic training.

He enjoyed fishing, boating, hunting, his dogs and was an avid skier. His decision for when and where he took vacations, his work, were based on his desire to hunt ducks daily.

Al married Karen Humberstone in 1961 and together they had three daughters. In 1980, he married Joyce Trainor of Evansdale, IA; they have been happily married for the past 46 years. Together they traveled frequently and especially enjoyed spending time at their cabin in northern WI, boating, fishing, spending time together and with their friends.

Family of Alan Tebbe,
My heartfelt condolences to all of you on Al's passing from this finite realm to the eternal realm. May the Good Lord embrace you all in His arms of comfort. We can all look forward to meeting with Al again at some day known only to God.
I had the pleasure of first meeting Al in the early '80's at a D.U. banquet in Moline. He was a very outgoing guy who made you feel like you were a longtime friend. Learned a lot about waterfowl hunting from talking with Al, as well as others to whom I was introduced to through him. I always enjoyed chatting with him when he would stop by the Illinois Waterfowlers Alliance booth at the QCCA Outdoors shows as well as at later shows. Al always had an upbeat attitude. Never have I ever met someone who enjoyed hunting Bluebills as much Al!
I regret that that I won't be able to be there Friday, as we are out of town, but you will all be in my prayers on that day.
Myke Luebbers
