Following an extended illness, Dr. Alan Kimball Done, age 71, passed away at Cottonwood Hospital on Wednesday, March 18, 1998.
It has come to our attention that a significant error was made in the initial obituary for Dr. Alan Kimball Done. Alan was married to Georgia P. Scott (Caravaglia) in 1972 in Arlington, VA. Alan and Georgia lived in Chevy Chase, Maryland while Alan was Special Assistant to the Director for Pediatric Pharmacology, U.S. Food and Drug Administration. He was also Assistant Director of the Georgian International Institute for the Arts in Washington, D.C., where he was very involved in the Performing and Visual Arts, which he so deeply loved. Alan had the "thrill of his life" when he was able to sing in the chorus (on stage) with James McCracken and the Metropolitan Opera Society's production of "Tanhausser". After his assignment with F.D.A. was completed in 1975, Alan and his family moved to Birmingham, Michigan. In Michigan, Alan was Director, Division of Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology at Wayne State University and Adjunct Professor of Pediatrics at Children's Hospital of Michigan. In 1983, Alan and Michael Scott established the Association of Consulting Toxicologists, Inc. with Alan as President. In 1986, the partnership was dissolved and Alan set up a firm called Toxicon (a Nevada Corporation). Alan and Georgia were divorced in fall of 1985.He is also survived by his daughters, Deborah (Cliff) Scott; Chesla Scott; Lezli (Alan) Done; and Rebecca (David) Done and son, Michael Scott; and 13 additional grandchildren.
Alan was so very well-loved and will be missed by all of his family and friends. Truly the entire scientific community will miss the contributions he made to medicine but most of all, he will be missed by his children and grandchildren. He so inspired his children in accomplishing their highest goals. His daughter, Rebecca, following his path, will complete medical school shortly. His numerous accomplishments are so vast in number and yet pale in comparison to the man we call "Dad". We'll all miss you.
