Alvin was a member of the Bethel Methodist Church of Robinson, where he served on the board and various committees throughout the years. Alvin was a hard worker and spent many years providing for his family. Most of those years were spent working for Wales Industrial Service and Industrial Rigging Service. Alvin also loved to fish and hunt. His favorite fishing and hunting trips were the ones he shared with his nephews, son, and grandsons. Later in life, Alvin had a couple of fishing buddies who made sure he was able to enjoy fishing as long as he possibly could. Alvin was dearly loved by his family and friends and will be greatly missed.
