Obituary

Alan Finder of Wakefield, Massachusetts, formerly of Winchester, an economist who focused on analyzing utility systems, died on Oct.19 after a protracted bout with pancreatic cancer. His ability to increase the efficiency of utility systems allowed power to be made possible for millions, often in underdeveloping countries. Alan was 67.
Alan was a graduate of Trinity High School (1970), the College of William and Mary (BA, 1974), and Indiana University (PhD, 1985). He received several awards and honors for scholarship, leadership, and character during his academic career, including William and Mary’s Carr Memorial Cup.
He worked for the Commonwealths of Virginia and Kentucky, where he was awarded the title of Kentucky Colonel. In Kentucky, he met and married Patricia Hale. After earning his PhD, he worked for the state of Missouri, and then served as a consultant for NERA Economic Consulting, Arthur D. Little, Arthur Andersen, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, and KPMG Consulting, before starting his own firm, Global Regulatory Advisors.
Faith and friendship were the hallmarks of his life. He volunteered for the Boy Scouts of America at local and state levels, and was an active member of several professional groups. He was a beloved member of Temple Beth Israel (Washington, PA) and Temple Shir Tikvah (Winchester, MA), where he sang in the choir and participated in Torah study group. His spirit was contagious and energizing, filling the room with warmth and humor.
He is survived by his wife, Patricia, of Wakefield, Massachusetts, and two sons, Benjamin (Lara) of Takoma Park, Maryland, and Matthew (Nadia), of Wakefield, Massachusetts; two granddaughters, Allie and Kate; a sister, Dr. Andrea (David) Draisen of Anderson, South Carolina; and a brother, Chuck (Cindi) of St. Louis, Missouri; and several nieces and nephews who adored him.
A visitation will be held on Tuesday evening from 5 to 7pm at Lane Funeral Home, 760 Main St., Winchester, Massachusetts. Funeral services will be held on Wednesday at 10am at Temple Shir Tikvah, 34 Vine St., Winchester, Massachusetts, with burial to follow at Wildwood Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Temple Shir Tivah of Winchester, Massachusetts, or William and Mary Hillel, two places that brought Alan much joy.

Paul was a much appreciated and deeply valued colleague, who was unfailingly kind and witty. He will be deeply missed. I pray for him and for each of his family members.

I meant to write Alan, not Paul, who co-authored the cost of equity chapter with us. My deepest apologies to you all, and to Paul. In my mind Alan and Paul are indissoluble as colleagues and friends. Enrique Bacalao

In South Africa you say long life when someone passes away. I wish his family a long life. I worked with Alan at KPMG many years ago, he was always a kind soul, a caring professional and just such a real mensch.
