A beloved husband and father for more than 40 years, Alan Kaplan’s defining legacy will be his dedication to his family and friends. Described by those who knew him as being generous and “all heart,” he passed away on April 3 after contracting COVID-19.

Kaplan was born on Oct. 25, 1950 in Brooklyn, N.Y. He graduated in 1972 from Bentley College with a degree in business and accounting.

Marrying in 1977, he and his wife moved to Coral Springs to be closer to family. Kaplan owned Jain Accounting, where he developed close relationships and warm friendships with clients.

He was known as having a big personality and as someone who could make anyone laugh.

Kaplan liked to travel, going on cruises with his wife and frequenting Las Vegas. He was also a passionate sports fan with a weak spot for New York teams—his final photo with his twin brother, Richard, taken at the last game they attended.

He is survived by his wife, Ellen; their two daughters; and three grandchildren. In addition to his brother, Kaplan is survived by his sister, Denise.
