After receiving an education at a private school in Mexico, he went on to attend university in Monterey, Mexico. In 1954, at the age of 19, Alfredo came to Florida and studied for one year at Lake Worth High School to learn English.

Then, in the mid-late 1980's to the early 1990's, Alfredo owned and operated Dean's Barbeque for about seven years. Before retiring in 2005, Alfredo worked for the Florida DOT for 12 years.
Alfredo is survived by his wife, Elsie Ruiz; his three sisters; his six children, including his daughter, Cindy Lundman, and his sons, Alfredo Ruiz Jr., Marco Ruiz, Daniel Ruiz, Michael Ruiz, and Gregorio Ruiz; his eight grandchildren; as well as his six great-grandchildren.
