He lived in Val D Isere, France as a professional ski patrol from 1990-1993 where he met his Wife Anastasia Bordes in 1991. Moving to Lake Tahoe he worked as a Squaw Valley Ski Patrol and ski instructor. After marrying Stacy in 1995 Alain began to build the American Dream by starting and growing his business in Lake Tahoe, French Kiss Carpet Care.

Alain was an avid motorcycle, boating, and skiing enthusiast, enjoyed travel, and loved his family and friends.

Alain is survived by his wife Anastasia Bordes, his eldest son Julien and younger son Etienne, his parents Jacques and Anne-Marie Bordes, his sister Marie-Claude Lucos and her husband Didier Lucos and their son Raphael, as well as Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins in France.
