Albert M. Alire Obituary
Albert M. Alire, 54, born March 23, 1960 entered into God's kingdom on April 3, 2014 with his family by his side. Viewing and recitation of the Rosary will be held Thursday 4/10/14 8:00 p.m. at Greenlawn Chapel 3700 River Blvd. Church services Friday 4/11/14 at 9:00 a.m. at St. Francis Church 900 H St.
Albert leaves behind to cherish his memory his mother Lala, brothers and sisters Maryanne, Richard, Frank, Margie, Josie, Clarence, Liz and Rosendo and cousin Gloria Villanueva. He has left us to join our beloved family in the sky, father George Alire and brother George Jr., sisters Diane and Marcella. He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, two godsons and many friends whom he loved dearly.
Albert's faith in God never wavered. His faith remained strong no matter what he was going through. He always said his strength came from God and always gave Him the praise and glory regardless of the situation. When asked what he would like to say to God, he replied, I can't say enough. He loved his job at Kern Radiology and considered his coworkers to be his extended family. His main purpose during his illness was to get healthy and return back to work to rejoin his work family. He will definitely be missed by all who knew him. He touched many lives in the little time he walked this earth and was one who never met a stranger. He saw the good in everyone and never judged anyone from the outside but always saw their heart.
He was the son any mother would wish for, always thinking of her and caring for her every need. If he saw something he felt mom needed or wanted, it was no problem, he would make it happen whether she wanted him to or not. He was the best brother anybody could ever ask for, who could be depended on. If he saw a need he would be the first one there. He never hesitated to be there for a good laugh or just a hug always with an open ear and heart. Not just for family but also for friends. Family and friends were everything to him, always keeping in touch, it didn't matter if you were near or far, to him you were just a phone call away. He has made an imprint on this earth that can never be erased and we will always miss and never forget his loving kind caring ways, joy of life, laughter, and smile. This world will be a little dimmer without the shining light that he was.
