He was a graduate of Niles McKinley High School, class of 1944.

In 1948 he became a member of the Niles Mahoning Lodge #394 of the Masons, which is now the Niles William McKinley Lodge. For many years he bowled in the Sportsman League at the old Canfield Colonial Lanes.
Alfred loved to fish and later in life became a bird watcher and a squirrel enthusiast. He also loved gardening and was so proud of his tomatoes, his dahlias and his beautiful hanging baskets. Alfred was always his grandchildren’s biggest fan, watching them play baseball, basketball, volleyball and hockey.
