I will never forget how much playfulness Alfred brought to Halloweens and just life on Mayview Road. All the trips with Kiko to Baskin Robbins; all the bummed cigarettes with Daddy. So many wonderful stories. I was so happy Daddy and Alfred formed a friendship; Daddy was focused on his gardens and helping neighbors with their gardens. But Alfred kept the tiller and the snow blower running in top condition. Thank you and much love to all, especially Libby and Carolyn and all the grandkids and great grands. Alfred would want everyone to remember him and everything in kindness and laughter.

I remember all the times Alfred fixed our tractors and mowers. And all the years growing up as my grandmas next door neighbor. He was always kind to me and happy.
Libby , my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time please contact me I miss you. Angel Lesko Martin
