Always one to stay busy, Alfred worked for local farmers landing his last career at Ward Farms for over 30 years, retiring in 2016.

Alfred was an avid outdoorsman; he looked forward to hunting trips with family and friends and spending time at the lake. Alfred was a member of the VFW, American Legion, Pheasants Forever Club, Wild Turkey Foundation, Elks and Deer Hunter Association, and the NRA.
