Birth: 1906
Norwalk
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Dec. 1, 1924
Norwalk
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA



Alvin was a sweet young man who suffered from illness the majority of his life. Juvenile Diabetes was a mystery during his time and treatment was often home remedies.

My Great Grandparents and his loving Sister Alma were devastated when he passed away, but always remembered him to their grandchildren.

My grandmother told me that the doctor had her mother save the liquid she cooked vegetables in and give it to Alvin to drink because of the vitamins.

Alvin was a member of the Young Men's Christian Association and the Order of DeMolay. His Funeral Cards lists dozens of attendees from these groups along with a long list of family and friends. He must have been extremely popular. His family carefully labelled his possessions and they still exist today.

Rest in Peace Grand Uncle Alvin.



Funeral Card:

In Loving Remembrance Of
Alvin B. Clark
Died Dec. 2, 1924
Gone but not forgotten
A precious one from us gone
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled
God in his wisdom has recalled,
The boon his love has given,
And though the body slumbers here,
The soul is safe in Heaven
