He retired from Libby Owens Ford in 1979.

Discharged as Seaman first class March 13, 1946. Alvin was a life member of the VFW Post 2984 Northwood.

He is survived by his wife Janet (Bradley) Hubbell, three grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and two great-great-granddaughters. Also step-daughter Janet Lee (Tim) Scott and step-son Ken (Denise) Stambaugh; six step-grandsons and eight great-step-grandchildren.

Alvin loved the Mount Vernon area, keeping his lawn well cared for, tinkering in the garage, building bird houses and other wood projects. He enjoyed dinning out with his wife, Janet, and taking care of his new Ford Escape. He had a great sense of humor and at times was as ornery as they come. Alvin was very much loved and will be greatly missed.

The family is planning a Memorial Service in the spring.
