David Mamon Alston Sr., 66, husband of Mary Ellen Thomas Alston, departed this life on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013, at Inter Faith Medical Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., after a brief illness. Born in Sumter County on June 24, 1946, he was the son of the late William and Martha Howard Alston. He received his formal education in the public schools of Sumter County.
Fascinated by the construction industry, he equipped himself with sufficient training to become a master brick mason and a qualified licensed welder. He worked in this industry for more than 40 years before retiring completely in 2010. During this time, he hand painted several distinguished structures throughout the five boroughs of New York. His last structure was the famous Atlantic Center Mall in Brooklyn.
