Alan William Klineburger, 73, of Lewes passed away from prostate cancer Sunday, Sept. 5, 2021, at his home in Lewes. He was born in Philadelphia, Pa., son of the late Bill and Alice Klineburger.

Alan had an interesting career path. He worked for Preston Trucking Co. in Preston, Md., for 12 years. He then moved to South Windsor, Conn., for Preston Trucking. Alan then decided to carve birds and open a bookstore which he did  for several years. Alan moved his family to Seaford, where he worked for Trinity Transport of Seaford for over 20 years. He became head of the agent division at Trinity. Alan enjoyed working with the agents and their families. Alan and Tish had many memorial trips visiting the agents’ offices and their families, and developed lasting friendships with many of the agents.

He loved to watch the Eagles, the Phillies, and had many wonderful memories going to the games with his son, Bill. Alan also enjoyed going to many Maryland games with one of his good friends. Alan also enjoyed beach trips, traveling to foreign countries, bird carving, making anything with wood, and spending time with his many wonderful friends in Lewes and the surrounding area. He truly felt that one of the best things he ever did was moving to Lewes. He spent many, many happy hours with Overfalls in Lewes, restoring boats, spending time with his best friends from Overfalls.

He was a wonderful person and is missed by his wife, his sons, his relatives, and all the friends he has made over the years.

In addition to his parents, Alan was preceded in death by his sister, Jane. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Tish of Lewes; his two sons: Bill Klineburger of Lewes and Philip Klineburger living in Florida; as well as many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
