Alton was a steadfast and loving husband and father. His love for our mother, Janice, was unequivocal. He enjoyed camping and fishing, and anytime he could have with his family. His witty sense of humor is well known and will certainly be missed. He loved traveling and knew so much history and information about every place he travelled to. Alton was a longtime member of the Pasadena Volunteer Fire Department where he served in many roles. Alton retired from Brown & Root Industrial Services as an Electrical & Instrumentation Superintendent after 42 years.


The family of Alton wishes to extend our sincere thanks to the staff of Magnolia Hospice Care, Serenity Gardens Memory Care and Sylvan Shores Health and Wellness Center.
