Alvin loved his family and friends and his East Lake community. He was a talented musician playing several instruments and had a beautiful voice. He was a member of several bands throughout the years and enjoyed playing for family, friends and community events. He especially enjoyed playing at nursing homes and ministering to the residents through music. His love of cooking often led to large gatherings in his home where food, music and fellowship was always present.
The family is honoring Alvin’s choice for cremation and no services are planned.
