Alvin was born to Andrew and Grace Adams May 24th, 1939 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He graduated from Granite High School in 1957. He served in the United States Marine Corp from 1956-1964. After discharge he joined the Operating Engineers Union as a "heavy equipment operator" for numerous jobs, taking great pride in each and every one of them before retiring in 2001.
Alvin & Joyce spent many years enjoying traveling with their motor home visiting family, friends and making new friends. They enjoyed many years wintering in Arizona until recent health conditions interrupted their travels. He was determined to regain his strength so that he could return spending this winter back in Arizona. Not a single person that knew him would argue his determination! A special thanks go out to each and every one of his therapists and caregivers over his rehabilitation journey. Each and every one of them were totally amazed by his determination and always made a point to tell us what a special man he was. He cherished every moment that he got to spend with his children, grand- children and great-grand children all of which filled him with pride. He was known as the best "PAPA" ever by his grand-children and great -grand children residing in Montana. He was a man with many talents and endless patience. He was like by everyone that crossed his path and would offer a helping hand to anyone around him. He especially took great pride during the summer manicuring his yard regardless of what it took to accomplish that until he finally hired it done. Of course the yard always looked good but never to the "perfection" that he could do! Oh he loved his yard!!
