I am so sad to hear this news! I’m sorry I only saw this today. Lesley and Guy, my heart goes out to you! Your family was such an important part of my childhood. Such fond memories of your Mom and Dad and spending time at your house. My prayers are with you! Much love to you both ❤️ Angel
For nearly 40 years I have traveled to Fernandina for family vacations and we were always welcomed by Uncle Alva. He would pick us up from the airport and take us golfing and entertain us with endearing stories of growing up on the island. A kind and loving family man, he was a joy to be around. He loved to laugh and join in family game nights. He excelled at calling Bingo and was a generous host to his great niece and nephews. He was always the first to volunteer if someone needed help.I will treasure our last visit a month ago. We will miss him greatly. We are keeping his family in our thoughts and prayers. Hugs
