Alven was a loving father, brother, grandfather, and great grandfather, and uncle. He loved playing his harmonica, cooking, and was happiest when he spent time with his family.

He loved the Lord and would preach the love of God to anyone who’d listen. Dad had his famous saying to all those who knew him. When you parted ways, he’d always say “Love, Peace and Happiness.” Later.
