Mr. Alan Halla of Palm Springs, California born on March 30, 1949 in Ostrava, Czech Republic passed away peacefully at age 71 on July 20, 2020.

Disenchanted with his people of Czechoslovakia after the Russians invaded in 1968, Alan knew that it was a place he could no longer call home, and decided to leave. After escaping his country and staying in a refugee camp in Austria, he emigrated to the United States in 1969. With forty dollars in his pocket and not knowing any English, he landed in New York and witnessed the moon landing on the big screen in Times Square and knew he had come to the right country where anything was possible. After many odd jobs, and learning the language and culture, Alan found his way to Palm Springs where he worked as an electrical engineer at the local hotels which is where he met his wife of 43 years.

Alan lived life on his own terms and loved working in his shop on his favorite full time hobby. He also enjoyed going shooting, watching old movies and the nightly news, and catching up with friends and family during his regular evening phone calls. He was a very intelligent man with a large knowledge base on many subjects and was generous in sharing his thoughts and opinions. He had a daily routine like clockwork, always dependable, you could count on him to be there when you needed him. Alan was a strong man, the rock of his family and he will be missed by them very much.

Alan was preceded in death by his parents Ludmila and Josef Halla, and his son Alan Joseph "Jojo" Halla Jr. He is survived by his wife, Laraine Ann Afan Halla; daughter, Tiffany Ann Halla Foster; grandson, Alan Alexander Vega Halla; granddaughters, Farrah Ann and Eva Moon Foster and sister, Liba Halla Dymanus.

Private viewing will be held on Monday, July 27 at Rose Mortuary & Crematory 66424 Pierson Blvd. Desert Hot Springs, CA. 92240. His ashes will be interred at Desert Lawn Funeral Home and Memorial Park 11251 Desert Lawn Dr Calimesa, CA 92320.
