My sympathy goes out to the family during your time of grief. May God's loving-kindness comfort you and help you through this difficult time. (Psalm 119:50,76)

Alvin Mason worked as a custodian here at DAS, but he was so much more than the job that he did, and he wanted people to know that.
He was not just intelligent, he was a brilliant, free-thinker, often coming up with ideas and gadgets to make our lives, and the lives of our tenants here at DAS, easier.
He knew more than I will ever know about energy and the future possibilities of how to harness energy sources that we did not yet fully comprehend.
He was a master at Sudoku, and he had a board and competitors amongst both his teammates at Revenue, and his group at the Annex office-- his last assignment at DAS.
During his last year and a half with DAS, Alvin showed a true talent for helping to train new employees. He was responsible for mentoring over a dozen new custodians and he was gentle, helpful and always full of suggestions.
When Alvin realized that he was sick, he still came down to have early morning chats every-so-often, and, like the scientist and researcher that he was in his true heart, he was searching for alternative treatments and new, cutting edge options till the end.
Even his home email, which began with Alvinstein, makes me smile as it references the blending of Alvin with one of his role models, Einstein.
Alvin was more than an employee, he was my friend. He earned my friendship through his smile, his vulnerability and his openness to letting each new day be just that.
The long talks we shared before or after work, the way he worked at making changes in himself and with others was truly inspiring.
I will miss you so much Alvin.
Even though you were not here for the last several months, I knew that I could call, or that you'd just pop in-- always with some interesting facts and your great energy.
I know that you believed in great possibilities, amazing ideas that had not yet been proven...
I hope then, my dear friend, that you have gone to find your greater "perhaps".
Because of your fascination of energy and it's alternative forms, I will never see a lightning storm and not think of you.
I will never feel wind, see water cascading over a dam or falls, or watch an oil pump, that I do not remember you.
You were one of my greatest lessons that diamonds are sometimes hidden in the most unlikely places-- So much love to you and your family my friend.... if I wrote all day, I couldn't begin to....just know, you made a difference. You created impact. Your legacy here, was becoming the alternative energy you so admired. Thank you. Love You. Miss you.
