Alvin Franklin Ambrose, Sr.

March 31, 2022

Alvin Franklin Ambrose, Sr., of East Lake went to be with the Lord Thursday,  March 31, 2022. He was born August 2, 1939 in Elizabeth City, NC to the late Nolan and Melva Ambrose. He was predeceased by his wife of over 51 years, Myrna Loy Sawyer Ambrose whom he dearly loved, and by his sister Ray Kaighn of Elizabeth City.

Alvin is survived by his four children, Alvin Wayne Ambrose (Louise) of Washington, NC, Calvin Franklin Ambrose (Brenda) also of Washington NC, Bonita Ambrose Hurdle (Alan) of Manteo, NC, and Alvin Franklin Ambrose, Jr. of East Lake, NC; his brother, Nolan Ambrose of Elizabeth City, NC; as well as many grandchildren and great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

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.
