Alan Weiner Obituary (2022) – Fairfield, Connecticut


Alan j weiner
Alan J. Weiner (aka Al Coyote Weiner), 85, of Fairfield, died Sunday, December 26, 2021 at Bridgeport Hospital after a long illness with respiratory illnesses. Alan leaves behind his beloved wife, Fay Carpenter Weiner.
Born in Bridgeport, Alan grew up in Fairfield and loved the city. Alan got into art about 20 years ago, when he was looking for something to do for his “final years”. He had reduced it to poker, fishing or art. Alan was teaching at Housatonic Community College and began taking art classes. He loved them!
Alan found his life to be an incredible journey. He met and married “the woman of his dreams” who supported his artwork and other endeavors. Alan has pursued many creative vocations and achieved levels of accomplishment in each of them – singing, acting, writing, professional golf – but none of them really clicked. Not before he starts painting.
A graduate of the University of Miami, Alan went to England to earn an MA in Creative Writing in London and Oxford from Antioch International University. Upon his return from Europe, he was accepted as a playwright at the Yale School of Drama.
Painting has become his passion. His work is avant-garde; Alan called his style unconventional expressionism, unhindered by the dictates of society. His works are bright, colorful and daring.
