Alvin Jack Fitzgerald


Alvin Jack Fitzgerald, loving husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather passed away on April 19, 2014 at the age of 89. Alvin Jack was always helpful and a very giving person, tender hearted, and a jokster who was always smiling. He was a member of the Judson Memorial Baptist Church, and retired from the Lansing School District after many years of service. "Til we meet again, ungawa." 

Preceding him in death are his parents, Ernest and Martha Fitzgerald, sisters Grace Helferich and Dorothy Worm, and brother Thomas Fitzgerald.

The family would like to extend a very special thank you to the Great Lakes Caring Hospice, especially Elyse, Merri, Kory, Anne, Charles, John, and all the other staff who comforted him on his journey.
