Alva was born to John P. Van Auken and Harriet Fletcher. He married Ethel Josephine Avery on January 18, 1920. They had two sons, Beuford and Bernard. I am Bernard's daughter. Alva died before I was born but from all accounts he was witty, charming, generous, and good-looking. I believe he was killed in a car accident going on a shopping trip for my Mother.

Mom told me you served in WWII at the same time your sons did! Sure wish we could have had you longer in our lives.
