Alfred loved being a husband and father, two things that he excelled at, sometimes working two jobs to provide for his family. When he found time for leisure activities he played hardball or bowled in his younger days. Later in life he would pass the time watching his beloved Yankees or Football games on tv. He was happiest being with his kids watching the game. He always considered himself somewhat of a cowboy and was a huge fan of westerns, his favorite was John Wayne. He lived by the motto “ Don’t make life hard for other people, it’s hard enough out there and hopefully they won’t make it hard for you too”. The family would also like to express their gratitude to the Veterans Administration and to all his caregivers. All services will be held privately. Contributions may be made to Hildebrandt Hospice Care Center in his memory.  For more information and to sign Alfred’s online guestbook, visit

    They say the measure of a person can be found in their children. We have the pleasure of calling 4 of them our friends and if they are any indication as to what kind of man he was, then he must have really been one of the good ones. We wish were could have met him. Our deepest sympathies go to the whole family. Sincerely Bob & Gini Cobb
