In Memoriam – Alen R.Bahret June, 1962 – December 2022

We would like to recognize the service and friendship of Alen Bahret, who served Lane for 40 years, and was LCCEF President. He was a valued member of the LCC IT department and a friend to all he met. While LCCEF President he fought for the labor rights for all members of LCCEF with gusto. Many of us can remember Alen coming by with words of encouragement or support at times.  Alen treated those he knew at Lane as his community, and continuously acted in service to the college throughout his career here. 

The LCCEF-EC’s are at a loss for words when trying to write about a man who meant so much to so many. 

We are including the official obituary from Major Family Funeral Home and including the link below where members can share memories and photos on his Tribute Wall for friends and family. There are links to send flowers, plant a tree, and other coordinated efforts by the family to remember Alen.

“Alen R. Bahret of Springfield passed away December 20, 2022. He was 60. Alen was born in Santa Ana, California on June 17, 1962, to Donald R. and Arline M. (Martinson) Bahret.

          Alen lived in Santa Ana, California, Eugene and Springfield, Oregon. He graduated from Thurston High School and then attended LCC and then received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon in Business. Alen retired after 40 years as a programmer at Lane Community College.

          Alen enjoyed traveling to many places in the U.S., hiking and camping with family and friends. The highlight for him was a trip to Norway in 2018. Music was a big part of Alen’s life, singing in the praise team at his church. Also, playing the trombone in the U of O marching band.

          Alen joined the Lane County Sheriff’s Office Family in July of 1989 as a Reserve Deputy Sheriff. Alen rode at least once a week, often more, and eventually earned his solo status as a Reserve Deputy. In March of 2011 Alen was promoted to Reserve Sergeant. Alen gave thousands of hours of his time to this organization, both in his service on patrol, and in his service as the coordinator of the local Reserve Academy. He is survived by his mother, Arline and Aunt Evelyn and Uncle Walt Schneider and numerous cousins. Preceded in death by his father, Donald.

A graveside service will be held January 28, 2023, at Camp Creek Cemetery 11:00 a.m. with a memorial service to follow at 1:00 p.m. at Hope Lutheran Church in Springfield.”

Update on the Service:

From FB: After talking with the sheriff’s department and LCC, we’ve decided that hope cannot hold the amount of folks for Alen’s memorial. We are planning on using the main theater on the campus at LCC. The time will still be the same and the committal at the cemetery will still be the same. LCC offered the theater free of charge.
