As reported by WRCB-TV, Alvin’s parents resided on Terrace Street and Maple Court. Whereas The Sun reported, Alvin worked as an antique dealer. As Heavy reported, he was a hardworking individual who traveled far and wide to a flea market in a “beat-up El Camino car packed with junk.”
Eva Meara who worked nearby described him as a nice guy who took 10 minutes to get out of the car as he was tall and heavy. He had talent in selling second-hand designer shoes. He sold vases, dolls, knick-knacks, and anything one could imagine.
Alvin and his wife later moved to Los Angeles, where Doria attended her high school.
At the age of 82, Alvin took his last breath in Los Angeles from an accident caused by a dog’s leash in 2011. The LA coroner ruled his death as an accident. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance and was diagnosed with bleeding on the brain.
After he didn’t gain consciousness, he passed away on 12 March 2011.
