Remembering Alan Scott Killen

Alan Scott Killen (60), son of Winston and Dorothy Killen, was born in Hodge, Louisiana on August 19, 1962. Jesus welcomed him home on August 26, 2022.

He grew up in the Ruston, Louisiana area. After graduating high school, he joined the Marine Corp and attended Louisiana Tech University. Once he graduated from Louisiana Tech, he married Melinda Welsh and attended Tulane University.  He received his law degree and the couple returned to Ruston to start a family. The Lord blessed the couple, and Scott became the daddy of two beautiful children – Kirstie Shane and Christian Kane Killen. 

He loved Jesus, his family, friends, church, his music, movie “classics”,  the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Dunkin’ Dawgs with a passion.  

Over the past year, he battled and strongly fought cancer as long as his body would allow. He received strength from the grace of God, as well as, the love and support of his family and friends daily.  He is now pain free and at peace, worshiping the Lord with gladness. 

A visitation will be held September 2 at LifeChurch.La-Ruston at 3:30 p.m. and will be followed by a casual Celebration of Life at 4 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, please send any donations to LifeChurch.La-Ruston or the American Cancer Society in his memory.
