Alan Moore Barnicoat, 77, passed on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 in Bristol, CT. He was the husband of Jean (Osborn) Barnicoat of Collinsville. Born In Warwick, RI he was the son of the late Stanley and Edna (Ingerson) Barnicoat. He received an undergraduate degree from the University of RI and a Master’s Degree from Southern Connecticut State College. Alan was a Speech Pathologist in the Hartford Public Schools for many years.
He leaves two children Cristina (Barnicoat) Lynders of Connecticut and Derrick Barnicoat of Kurtistown, Hawaii, as well as one granddaughter, Kathryn Lynders. Alan also leaves a sister, Alayne Barnicoat, of Providence, RI.
A friend of Alan’s saw him as a Renaissance Man. He had an avid interest in the arts -recording two songs that he had written in 1958 and acting with the Hartford Stage and Simsbury Light Opera Co. Alan was also an artist who created and appreciated the abstract. He frequented jazz clubs in Providence in the 60’s and played R&B on his Hammond in Hartford. He appreciated animals both domestic and wild and could often be found bird watching or helping on the whale watch boats in Wellfleet.
Donations may be made in his name to the Alzheimer’s Association or the Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary. A celebration of his life will be held in May. Please visit Alan’s Book of Memories at for online tributes.

Dear Jean
I felt it would be revealing to you and to anyone else who may have known your husband to express my own impression of Alan. It was on the Cape
in the mid nineties when l first met him. Right away l felt at ease in his company. He was unpretentious, very easygoing and polite. He was exceptionally smart and perceptive, and yet interested in my take on things. So it was easy for me to see what you already saw in him . He was much different than
the others that you had dated in the past, and l quickly decided (as we say on the Cape) that he was a keeper . He was an unusually good man and as l told your sister we needed to encourage you to pursue the relationship. Jean, you were fortunate to find him as a true ‘soulmate’ in life. I hope we all
can find such wonderful people as friends as you have done in finding your unique Alan! I love you Jean. Your brother-in-law Dick

Dear Jean, Again, so sorry for your loss. I will always remember my great brother in law with the utmost affection. I have a lot of fond memories of him being so good natured and easy going about any plans we might have cooked up! And if we ended up at a restaurant having lunch, he’d never let me pay on top of it!
I’ll alway treasure the good relationship we had. He was always there with a word of encouragement about any of my endeavors and there was never even a hint of any discord between us. He was always very patient and kind to me and I do and will miss him very much!
His witty jokes and puns made him a very natural part of our family and made me always enjoy his company.
He was an interesting and caring person and his absence is felt deeply.
With much love from your sister,

Jean Osborn Barnicoaat

Alan was my soul mate and it pained my greatly to see what this insidious disease did to him. It robbed him of all memories and dignity but most of all it robbed him of himself. He was so supportive of me when I was a "late blooming" student, making it possible for me to focus on my studies and not have to work. He was so proud of me and I loved hearing him "bragging" to people about how well I did in college. He was funny, smart, and creative and my world will never be the same. It's being without him that I'll never get used to. Until we meet again, my love.

So sorry for your loss. Alan was one of the good guys! Always ready with a store and one that usually made you laugh. He will be missed!

Jean Barnicoat Posted at 06:21pm

Thank you Barry. Alan fought a long battle with Alzheimer’s and he has finally been released from the grips of pain and dementia. Please remember me to Sissy.
