We are deeply saddened to announce that our dad passed away peacefully in his sleep yesterday evening around 6 pm at Willen Hospice, where he was comfortable.

Alan Adair Cause of death

According to online reports, Alan died after a protracted fight with prostate cancer. Alan wrote a sincere message to his loved ones on February 17th, 2023, informing them of his illness. The message reads as follows:

Such sad news, God bless you, Alan Adair. I don’t want this to turn into too much drama, so here goes. It’s time to let folk know my health situation in full. The week after our Queen died in September, I was suddenly diagnosed with Prostate Cancer.

After various blood tests, all sorts of scans, biopsies, etc I was called back a few weeks later to be informed that sadly it was incurable because the cancer had spread to my Liver, Bones, and Pelvis. They said they would put me on the treatment of 3 monthly hormone injections and daily Chemotherapy tablets (4 – 240mg)

With a view that if the treatment stopped any further cancer spread I could have maybe 3-5 years left to live. Sadly I had the results on Tuesday. The treatment hasn’t worked and there is nothing more they can do for me as cancer has spread even further into my liver. My time left now is in their words – ‘ a few months!

I’m really struggling now (even missed my beloved Doms last night) but HAVE to try and see out what time I have left in the best way I can. Unfortunately, all I’m doing now mostly is sleeping. All the targets of 2,000 Luton games attended, seeing us play in our new ground, celebrating my 70th birthday, etc are now sadly gone.

This will now literally take one day at a time. The help I am receiving from my immediate family is incredible. I couldn’t deal with all this without Georgina, Deb, Mollie, etc.

I really, really want to attend Luton V Burnley tomorrow and cousin Ken Adair is picking me up, taking me there, and bringing me straight home as I’m not allowed to (or physically can) drive anymore.

No matter what happens I kept my promise to Dad on his deathbed in 1976, by living my life to the absolute FULL. Sorry about the woes. Thank You.
