Alfred Roy Sturgeon Obituary

Alfred Roy Sturgeon

Alfred Roy Sturgeon, 85, of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, was beckoned by God's Angels on May 3, 2011 after a courageous and dignified battle with cancer.

Mr. Sturgeon was born on January 27, 1926 in Tell City, Indiana and resided in nearby Bristow for over 30 years. He relocated to Detroit and lived there until 1967 when he moved to Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. He retired from Massey Ferguson in October of 1983 with 28 years of dedicated service. At the age of 18, he served in the U.S. Army during World War II and was honored with the following decorations and citations: Purple Heart, Oak Leaf Cluster, two Bronze Stars, Combat Infantry Medal, and Eastern European Theatre Ribbon. During military combat, he survived an ambush in which he suffered multiple injuries. Through the years, he shared his remarkable testimonial of how his life was spared when a shell fragment lodged into a bible which he was carrying in his shirt pocket.

Preceded in death by his loving wife of 51 years, Ella (Van Hoosier) Sturgeon; granddaughter, Danyel Hayes; parents, George and Martha (Hobbs) Sturgeon; sister, Lillian Kleeman; brothers, Melvin, Norman, Isaac, Shelvy and Trevy; he is survived by daughters, Janette (Douglas) Brooks, Cheyrl (Mark) Kneram of Cuyahoga Falls, Star Tryon of Ravenna; sons, Michael Sturgeon, Richard (Terri) Sturgeon of Tallmadge; 17 grandchildren; 18 great-grand-children; four great-great-grandchildren; sisters, Betty Van Hoosier of Cuyahoga Falls and Juanita Hagedorn of Fort Wayne.

Friends may call 5 to 8 p.m. Friday at the Billow FALLS Chapel, 1907 23rd St., (corner of 23rd St. and Falls Ave.), Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44223. Private family services will be held with interment at Northlawn Memorial Gardens. (Billow Falls Chapel)
