I served with Alton in Vietnam in '70 and '71. While we didn't hang out together, he made an impression on me. He was exceptionally kind, and the fastest typist, by far, I've ever seen. I would marvel at how his fingers moved like a sewing machine across a keyboard. But mostly, his gentle nature is what made him so unforgettable. I'm saddened at his passing, and wish I'd had the chance to meet up with him here in Georgia, where I also live.

Rocky and family. We are so sorry to hear about Alton. Pat was remembering how he loved Jack and even brought to church. Jack got out of car one Sun when Pat on security; Jack went back in car so easy for him. Also your dad would start calling ‘Big Jack’ when he left church building & walked to car. They loved each other. So sweet. Remember the good times!! Pat & Kathy Grant Easley, SC
