Ocean Springs

In the quiet hours of the morning at his home, Monday, June 20, 2016, Mr. Alvin Endt heard the angels whisper, "Come and take my hand, and come with me; your work here is done."

Mr. Endt was born in Ocean Springs, Mississippi on September 28, 1933 to Albert and Maude Endt and was a lifelong resident of Ocean Springs. He was a devoted public servant, spending all of his life helping others. Mr. Endt served two terms as Alderman of Ocean Springs from 1965 to 1973. He was appointed Jackson County Supervisor in 1982 and served as District 113 State Representative from 1984 through 1999. He left a record of a life filled with kindness, reverence for God, and love for his many friends and loved ones. After graduating from the University of Southern Mississippi, Mr. Endt married the love of his life, Bettie Boyd and together they reared four children. His devotion and love for his family was without end. Mr. Endt taught history at St. Martin High School for many years and is fondly remembered by his students. According to many of them, his "paddlings" were infamous. He touched many young lives and was a master storyteller.
