Alvie bravely defended our country in the U.S. Navy. He spent much of his life working hard as a machinist at a steel mill. In his free time Alvie loved sports, especially football and baseball which he provided coaching on for different teams. He helped out at the Proviso West High School and the Memorial Park District with his sports knowledge. He also loved bowling and fishing to relax.

Al Always made us feel welcome. Always had a big hug for you. The last time we were up at My Nephew Michael’s house we were having a get together for something. Me and Al are sitting at the table with everyone out side and Al is playing footsie with me under the table and Laughing like crazy, That is what kind of Guy he was. Always just making people laugh and feel welcome. He had a gift. Anyone I brought around him he always talked with them and made them feel at ease. We will Miss you Al but now you can make people in Heaven feel like they belong. 😘😘❤️
