He was a loving and thoughtful father, grandfather, neighbor and friend. Born Nov. 26, 1918, in Midlothian, he was the son of the late Howard Brode and Rebecca Jane (Barnes) Brode. He was also preceded in death by his sister, Josephine Hunter; a granddaughter, Wendy (Brode) Burgess; and his wife, Erma (Stevenson) Brode, to whom he was lovingly devoted for 65 years of marriage. He attended Beall High School and had a variety of occupations in his lifetime. He began working in a family owned coal mine as a teenager.

Alvin was always available to help with waterline projects in Midlothian. When he worked for the Allegany County Roads Department, he drove snow plows, oiled and paved roads, cleared brush and worked as bridge foreman for many years from which he retired in 1980. Alvin was a member of Trinity Assembly of God Church in Midlothian and faithfully served over the years as a deacon, a trustee, a Sunday school teacher, a prayer warrior, an orchestra member playing his banjo, a member of the visitation team, a strong supporter of missions and a Christ-like example for friends, neighbors, co-workers and family.
