Alvey was born on August 19, 1947 in Cranberry, West Virginia and raised in Ohio. As a child, Alvey wanted to be a teacher but, instead enlisted and served in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. Afterwards, he entered into the commercial printing industry where he retired as a 5-Color Stripper.
Alvey was funny, kind, had a big heart, and had a full life. He told stories of having touched the monuments and statues in D.C. and knowing what a coal mine looked like because he was a miner's son; of him having climbed into a railroad car and having surfed in Hawaii; of his jump out of a plane to parachute with his son, how he had wrecked three cars over his lifetime and how he had seen snow in Alaska. He got to cut the umbilical cord of one of his grandchildren and was on a television show when he was in his 5th grade. He was an amateur photographer, had an "ah-oooga" horn on his truck when he was young, loved camping and loved being outdoors. Music was a passion of his, as was his love for animals. Throughout his life, he consistently had his wonderful pets by his side, sadly leaving behind his beloved dog, Lucy. Family, friends, and his community mourn the loss of his kind soul and big heart. He is loved greatly and will always be remembered.
Alvey will be fondly missed by his daughter, Stefanie F. Evans a/k/a his Bright Eyes; his grandchildren, Timothy, Kei, Meryck, Mia, Madalyn, and Molly; his sisters, Dorthy Spicer and Judy Drabinski; as well as his aunt, a niece, two nephews, several relatives, and countless friends.
He was predeceased by his son, Mathew Q. Evans; his brothers, Geno Evans and Thomas Evans; and his parents, Alvey E. and Mary Evans.
Private celebrations of life will be held and his ashes will be interred with his brothers at Western Reserve National Cemetery in Rittman, Ohio, at a later date.
Memorial donations in honor of Alvey can be made to The Epilepsy Foundation, 3540 Crain Highway, Suite 675, Bowie, MD 20716."
