Alvin had fond memories of growing up in Santa Monica and going to the beach and working in his father and uncle’s restaurant, Pickle Bills. He served an LDS mission in Brazil where he enjoyed the language and being among the good people of Brazil; Portuguese stuck with him his entire life. He had musical talent in playing the piano and organ, and was often called as the organist for the church. He graduated from BYU and received his masters degree from the U of U in pharmacy. He worked as a pharmacist until he retired. He had a natural brilliance as a student throughout his academic career. His pharmaceutical expertise was always appreciated by family members. He enjoyed family gatherings and playing board games with his children and grandchildren. He had a love of travel and seeing new places. He was always up for eating out and going to the movies. His “Far side” sense of humor will be missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his siblings; Colleen Later, Betty Gubler, John Davenport, and his sister-in-law Barbara Davenport. His children; Lisa Sanchez (Russ), Tamara Fitzgerald (Patrick), Brian Davenport, Tiffany Diaz (Erick); 11 Grandchildren: Annalisa Kruger, Salinas Cardenas, Skyler Fitzgerald, Zane Diaz, Caden Fitzgerald, Mercedes Diaz, Teá Diaz, Ariana Rosa Sanchez, Belén Fitzgerald, Kai Diaz, Tiffany Fitzgerald; 1 greatgrandchild: Braden Jude Kruger.

His legacy will continue to grow for generations to come.

His children would like to express their gratitude to his sister Colleen and her late husband Bud Later for their kindness and care they provided him for many years.

“Don’t you quit. You keep walking. You keep trying. There is help and happiness ahead. Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don’t come until heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come. It will be all right in the end. Trust God and believe in good things to come.” ― Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
