He is survived by his son, Jesse Alba, son and daughter-in-law, Richard and JoAnn Avina of San Antonio, son and daughter-in-law, Charles and Stella Valdez, and daughter and son-in-law, Bertha Alba Trevino and Louis B.

Martinez of Dallas, sister and brother-in-law, Mary and Simon Moya of Austin, and brother, Charles Arevalo of Austin. Tony Alba was born and raised in Austin during the depression. He was a young man who learned the effort of work at a very early age. He began his first job with Southland Ice Company at the age of 16 and soon there after he founded his own company Alba Moving and Hauling Service in 1952. He became the epitome of an entrepreneur with numerous prominent clients such as Lita Guerra with the University of Texas, JR Reed Music Company, Harold Eichenbaum Displays and the late Bob Bullock and President LBJ. There were many prominent luminaries and clients in the Austin Area that called and relied on Alba Moving. Tony Alba loved his work and his family. His work ethic set a high standard for his family. Tony at his last days was asked "What was the worst job you had?", and he responded "Never had a bad job I had work". This is the legacy that Tony Alba leaves for his children, 17 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, and six great-great-grandchildren. The Alba name is one of integrity, hard work, loyalty and dedication! He will always be remembered for his love of Red trucks, boots, Texas hats and love of life.
