Alvin Stokes, 69, of Forts Lake, MS, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, February 12, 2017 in Pascagoula, MS. Alvin was born on July 4, 1947 in Jackson County, MS to the late Murray and Loistine Stokes. He will be remembered for being a hard worker, strong and rough, but also as a teddy bear, that loved being around people, especially his family. Alvin loved Southern Gospel music and good country cooking, especially by all his sisters. He was very competitive regardless of what the challenge might have involved. Alvin loved his daughter Alyson more than life itself, and he was ready to be with his Master and Lord.

In addition to his parents, Alvin was preceded in death by his siblings, James Aubrey Stokes, Ronald Stokes, Gloria Jean Mahathy, Arlene Oliver, and Lloyd Murray Stokes.

He is survived by his loving daughter, Alyson Stokes; siblings, Donald Ray (Faye) Stokes, Sandra (Leroy) Mahathy, Rev. Alton (Fareta) Stokes, Glenda (Colen) Brown, Glen (Dianne) Stokes, Linda Gail (Glynn) Walters, Ruth (Rev. Tim) Cauley, Raymond Stokes, Ernestine Walters, Geraldine (Darrell) Passman, Darlene (Mike) Walters, Rodney (Lisa) Stokes, and Ronald Wayne Stokes; along with numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

The visitation will be held on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 from 12:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. at Grand Bay Church of God in Grand Bay, AL.
