Alvin was one of a kind. He would help anyone at any time and often brought things home from his hauls that he had “bought” to help fellow drivers out of a bind. If Alvin wasn’t on the road, he could be found setting at his table or on the porch with a cold beer in his hand. He loved his family fiercely and really enjoyed spending time with his grandkids since his retirement.
