In his free time, Alfred enjoyed fishing, playing music, and spending time with family and friends. Alfred had a passion for music. He played in a rock band for over 30 years, where he was the lead singer and played guitar. Music always brought so much joy to his life. Everyone who knows Junior, knows that he would whistle a tune all day long and that is how we would know that he was so happy. We will forever miss the whistling around the house that made us all smile.
Alfred had strong faith in God, and he believed in Jesus Christ. He always encouraged others to read the bible. Alfred (Junior) was the best man anyone could ever have known. Although he will be missed dearly, we find comfort in knowing he has gone to be with Jesus.
