Alvin was born into this world on March 10, 1951 to Ernest and Frances (Hull) Modesitt. Alvin left this world on Sunday, July 12, 2020 at home surrounded by his family. He is now resting safely and pain free from cancer in the arms of his Lord and Savior.
Alvin was a loving son, brother, mother, husband, father, papaw, friend and most of all a child of God. Alvin loved to spread the word of the risen Savior to all that allowed him to share that with them. He never missed an opportunity to share that gift with others. He was a farmer, diesel mechanic, lay pastor at times and worked at Bemis for many years. He often worked two jobs to provide for his family. He didn’t like to sit idle. Even after retirement he began to paint and restore antiques and do various wood working projects for family and friends.
Alvin married his high school sweetheart, Barbara Fern Orman, who survives, on March 27, 1970 in Saline City, Indiana. Together they raised their 2 daughters on his childhood family farm. Where they are still all currently residing together until God called him home.
Alvin is survived by his wife, Barbara F. (Orman) Modesitt. Daughters Angela (Chris) Robinson and Anita Hernandez all of Cory. Grandchildren, Brittany Kirkham, Dakota Robinson, Aysiah Hernandez and Jadison Robinson. Sisters, Wanda Hylton and Elaine (Ray) Collins. Brothers in law and sisters in law, Bob (Connie) Orman, Alice (Matt) Hankins, Peg Orman and Churck (Sherri) Orman. Father in law, Robert Orman. As well as many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, brother and sister in law, Wayne and Barbara A. Modesitt. Brother in law, Ed Hylton and mother in law, Rosland Orman.
