He had a beautiful long marriage for sixty years ending in her death September 3rd, 2007.

Alfred was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, brother and godparent. Alfred was a hardworking man who worked for the City of Seguin for over 38 years. He was a long-time parishioner and usher of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church where he served in Santo Nombre. He loved going to the coast with family to relax and fish. Alfred walked on the trails at Starcke park daily with friends. He enjoyed listening to conjunto music and was one heck of a dancer. He enjoyed going on cruises and was ready to set sail on April 2019 with family. Alfred left a quote to everyone he loved, “Thank you for all the help throughout this time. To my children and grandchildren…. thank you.”
