Alfred, his wife, Anna, and their 7 year old son, Maurice, perished in the S.S. Eastland Maritime Disaster on the Chicago River. A lake passenger steamer, the S. S. Eastland had been chartered by Chicago's Western Electric Company to transport the company's employees (and their families), to their annual picnic in Michigan City, Indiana.

At 7:28 a.m., still moored to her Chicago River dock and with 2,572 people on board, the S. S. Eastland began to list. The steamship managed to briefly right herself before slowly rolling on her side.

844 people died that day in what would turn out to be Chicago's worst disaster ever.
