Statement on the Passing of Alan Colmes

Alan Colmes passed away early Thursday, February 23, after a brief illness.

He was 66 years old.

He leaves his adoring and devoted wife, Jocelyn Elise Crowley.

He was a great guy, brilliant, hysterical, and moral. He was fiercely loyal, and the only thing he loved more than his work was his life with Jocelyn.

He will be missed.

The family has asked for privacy during this very difficult time.

    I rarely agreed with Alan, but I really loved his enthusiasm and good nature. He was the embodiment of the happy warrior and a true gentleman. Sad to see him go, and condolences to his family and friends.

    Sad to hear about Alan’s passing. He was so kind to me whenever I contributed to Liberaland. I had no idea he was ailing. A good man gone too soon. Rest in peace, dear gentle man.

      I’m sorry I couldn’t correct the end of the post above, my cellphone is hacked by a fascist trumpist

    Although I didn’t agree with him politically, I always enjoyed watching and listening to his point of view. God bless you Alan…rest in peace.

    Alan Colmes was the embodiment of freedom. He believed in a free society of citizens, and in the rights of those citizens to speak freely. Rather than banning an opposing view, he engaged it. As much as I disagreed with Alan, I admired his fairness. He will be greatly missed by those who admired and loved him.

  14. Ren February 23rd, 2017 at 15:35

    Never agreed with your views Alan but you had a good way about you and always ended intense debates with a smile. You’re going to be dearly missed especially by those at FNC who knew you the best.

    I have difficulty understanding how conservatives now say he was a nice man when he would have been happy to watch mankind be swalllowed up by the sewer of socialism.

    • Budda February 23rd, 2017 at 15:41

      You are what is wrong with America today.

  16. Marcia Everett February 23rd, 2017 at 15:45

    Thank that Liberal for Saving America! ca-ching! All those days off, I figured you were sick. I should have called more often. damn.

  17. disque1 February 23rd, 2017 at 15:50

    God Bless Alan now in the loving arms of the Lord and his Wife and family!

  18. Barbara Moran February 23rd, 2017 at 16:26

    Alan represented an alternate viewpoint at a network that showed little respect for varying opinions and beliefs. He did so with class, warmth, and humor against extremely large odds. Gone too soon…

    • James H. Cavener February 23rd, 2017 at 20:10

      Alan was on the one network that did encourage diverse viewpoints. You have it backwards. Imagine Sean Hannity being hired by CNN!

      • MBJR February 23rd, 2017 at 21:24

        Imagine Sean Hannity…..nope I got nothing.

      • Rocky the Liberal Rottweiler February 23rd, 2017 at 23:33

        Imagine having some respect for the fact that this is a thread about Alan and maybe you could shut up about politics for two minutes.

  19. BerkeleyMan February 23rd, 2017 at 16:32

    Alan was a mentor and hero for me. Much love for you on the other side Alan. Jocelyn, I send you my heartfelt prayers, your husband was a very loving man with a gentile soul.
