Alan Vesper, loving husband of 50 years to Veva, and father of Keith (Leslie) & Liz, passed away peacefully at the age of 80 on May 9th, 2020. Alan was born in 1940 in Ft. Thomas, KY, to Lee & Delma Vesper. He spent his childhood in Ft. Thomas and adult life in Clifton as a longtime member of Annunciation Church. Alan was a proud graduate of St. Xavier High School Class of ‘58 and Xavier University Class of ’62. Aside from his love of golf, he will be remembered for his smile and quick wit, his fondness for animals, his daily cocktail hour ritual enjoying a Manhattan, and his deep dedication & love for his family and friends. In addition to his wife and kids, Alan leaves behind his two grandchildren, Jackson and Isabel, and siblings Lee, Mary Del & Joan. Services will be privately held. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you make a donation in his memory to St. Xavier High School or The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.  Condolences at

Will Rogers once said “I never met a man I didn’t like”. Well I never met a person who didn’t like Al. He was one of the best. Marty and I extend our deepest sympathies to Veva,Keith,Liz and the Vesper family. We will miss you Atles

Dear Veva, I was so sorry to read of Alan’s death. Though we did not often cross paths, I remember you and Alan with great fondness. You were Carrie’s teacher at Annunciation and of course the Clifton connection ran deep with Jim. Jim passed away in July, 2019 after suffering from Parkinson’s so I certainly understand your pain and sadness. I will keep you and your family in my prayers, Sincerely, Kathy Coogan

Dearest Veva, So many, many times, you have crossed my mind. Wondering how you were. I am so sorry to hear about Al. You had so many years together, it has to be a tremendous loss. If there is anything I can do for you please let me know. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
