He was a really great guy...a true friend...with a kind heart. I don't remember him ever being mean or ugly to anyone. Always made me laugh. For year after year, he signed my yearbooks: Al 'da oz' Johnson...& he'd draw the rock n roll fingers. That was Alvin for you...concert tshirt, levis, layered blond hair & OZZY tattooed across his fingers. He fit in to all walks of life...from student council president to smoking patio patron. He was one of those people that just had a shine about him. Someone you never forget.
