A native of Santa Paula, Alan attended Ojai Valley School and attended the University of Arizona where he studied business administration.

Alan, whose family had been involved in Santa Paula agriculture and civic affairs for generations, carried on the tradition of community service. He was active in political and civic organizations including serving on the Santa Paula City Council from 1966 to 1974, and as Mayor from 1970 to 1974. He was the founding chairman of Santa Clara Valley Agriculture Development Corp., Ventura County Community Foundation and Santa Paula Community Fund. Mr. Teague was formerly the president of Rancheros Visitadores, and former chairman of Ventura County Medical Resource Foundation.

Alan had served as a director of the Limoneira Co. since 1990 and was elected Chairman of the Board of Directors in 2004; he previously had been Chairman from 1988 to 1996. At the time of his passing Alan was president of California Orchard Co., a director of Ventura County Fruit Exchange and Salinas Land Company, and trustee of the Limoneira Foundation.

Alan had been employed by Teague-McKevett Company and the McKevett Corporation since 1961, holding various positions, and was president of both firms from 1984 until the 1995 merger with Limoneira.

He is survived by sons Alex and Charles (Laura), as well as grandchildren, and a worldwide community of friends from all walks of life.
