Randall James Alvarez Obituary
RANDALL JAMES ALVAREZ, 26, of Riverside, CA, passed away on December 4, 2015, as a result of sudden and unexpected cardiac arrest. He was born on May 13, 1989, in Riverside, the son of Jim Alvarez and Amy (Bailor) Gilbert. At age 12, Randall moved away to Texas where he met many precious friends, but was so happy and enthusiastic to return to Riverside earlier this year. He cherished reconnecting with relatives here in southern California and doted over all the new additions to the family. He is survived by his father and mother, as well as his brothers Craig (Emily) Alvarez of Eden Prairie, MN, and Brett Alvarez of Lubbock, TX; his paternal grandmother Judy Alvarez of Riverside; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins. Randall was known for his sense of humor, his quick wit, love of life, and his gift and enthusiasm for entertaining others. He had a magnificent, bold personality, and delighted in making family and friends laugh. He was also known for his vast knowledge of movie quotes and trivia. He loved the Lord, with Proverbs 15:33 a significant verse to Randall, "Wisdom's instruction is to fear the Lord, and humility comes before honor." He was deeply cherished by the children at Floral Heights Methodist Church Youth Ministries back in Texas. A service will be held on Monday, December 21st at 11:00 a.m. at Magnolia Presbyterian Church, 7200 Magnolia Ave, Riverside, CA, 92504. Randall had attended Magnolia Presbyterian as a child, and returned as a member upon his return to Riverside. Throughout his life, Randall had been an avid baseball enthusiast and diehard Anaheim Angels fan. To honor his memory, the family is asking those attending the service to wear Angels' gear or the color red. In lieu of flowers, the family is suggesting a memorial contribution be made in Randall's name to the Pujols Family Foundation at 14252 Culver Drive Suite A #252 Irvine, CA 92604 (714) 639-0562 and/or the Make-A-Wish Foundation at 3521 Main St, Riverside, CA 92501 (951) 321-0179.
