Alan Brickman
Born 4/7/1931
Died 10/9/2009 in Syracuse, NY

October 9, 2009 Alan M. Brickman, 78, lifetime resident of Syracuse, passed away quite suddenly Friday, October 9, at Crouse Hospital. He was born April 7, 1931. His parents were Edith and Irving Brickman. Alan attended all Syracuse schools and Syracuse University and graduated Syracuse Law School in 1955. In 2005 he was proud to celebrate having been a lawyer for 50 years. He was a true fan of the Orange and one of the oldest. He had been going to games and cheering them on since he was a small child. His father had been on the football team when he was a student at Syracuse (leather helmet days). Alan claimed to bleed orange. As an undergraduate at S.U., Alan was on a national award-winning table tennis team that S.U. was most proud to have in those years. Alan was extremely enthusiastic and intense about any activity that he approached. If he were going to do it, he would enjoy it to the fullest, that included his close friendship with the athletes on the S.U. teams. Prior to agents working for athletes, Alan had fun representing some of the players, guiding them and making sure they were treated fairly and signed properly. Some of his athletes were John Brown, Larry Czonka, John Mackey, JimBo Nance, and others. He was so very proud and had such fond memories. As Alan\'s three sons grew older, Alan became increasingly involved with their athletic activities: football, baseball, wrestling and swimming. He didn\'t want to miss anything. Alan coached Little League baseball and Salt Springs baseball and as the boys grew older, Pop Warner. When his boys were older and out, Alan continued coaching. He loved working with the boys. He was so very proud of them. He would tell everyone that Todd Williams, a professional player, had played on his team. When it came to football, he coached Sherman Park football for a while. Once again with his fervent attitude, he enjoyed every moment as much as the players. Alan loved going to sporting events. He had season tickets to his beloved Buffalo Bills, never missed an S.U. game, be it football or basketball, and thrived on the Yankees. He loved to travel and could never seem to travel enough. He had many plans not yet fulfilled. Alan loved to eat. But, more than eating, he loved the challenge of finding a new restaurant or a new and unique nationality. He would be delighted. He had an extensive restaurant list that he was quite proud of, which listed every restaurant and address he had ever been to anywhere in the world. This list took a lot of time and dedication, but he always "worked" on it and referred to it. Surviving are his wife, Myrna of Syracuse; his three sons, Michael (Darla), Scott (Kelley) and Jon (Jill), all of Liverpool; three grandchildren, Jessica, Rachel and Joshua; and his sister, Ruthie (Roger) Kushner of Lewiston, New York. Calling hours will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, the 12th of October, with the funeral following at 2 p.m. at Ginsburg-Maloff Funeral Home, 4612 S. Salina Street.
