After retiring as an industrial millwright, he and his wife enjoyed travels across the United States and made many wonderful memories together that will never be forgotten. Many of his days after retirement were spent volunteering at the Paul Spitzfaden Community Center in Mandeville, Louisiana helping COAST serve hot lunch meals to the lovely seniors who came throughout the week. Also, Alvin (A.J.) was the vice president of the New Image Club at the center and the Bingo caller every Friday. His fun-loving personality was always embraced by everyone.
