Obituary for Alonzo W.R. Cavins Sr.

Alonzo W.R. Cavins Sr.
Alonzo W.R. Cavins was born August 6, 1927 in Savannah, Georgia to the late Willie and Margarette Cavins. He departed this life on July 16, 2017.

He served in the U.S Army in the Korean War. While being in the service he became a cook and later became Sergeant of his division. While serving his country that he loved so well, he earned the” Purple Heart” while fighting for his country being across enemy lines. Daddy loved his Army life and the concept of being involved with helping to save his country in the war. He had loved his country so much, that he would have given his life to do what was right. Meanwhile, after retiring from the Armed forces, daddy had gotten a job with the United States Postal Service in Chester Pennsylvania, where he later retired.

While being in the Armed forces he had established two marriages, his first wife was named Gloria Cavins, and he had six children by the names of: Alonzo W.R. Jr., Rodney (deceased), Anthony, Erick, Pamela, Stephanie Cavins (deceased). In his second marriage his wife was also named Gloria J. Cavins, and he had two daughters by the names of Deirdre and Elizabeth Cavins. As the years progressed, he became divorced and had a daughter by the name of Damita Cavins Riddick, which lives in Philadelphia with her husband. Daddy had two loving sisters that took care of him after their mother died when he was a young boy and their names were Arrie Daniels and Willie Cavins.

He departed this life leaving a host of grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews, which included an extended family, his friend, by the name of Ms. Laura Tyre and her children Cassandra, Cynthia and Charlene that he had known for decades.

Our memories of Alonzo are that he loved to tell us stories about his childhood living with his mom and dad. He talked about his time serving in the Amy, loved to tell jokes, disguise his voice in character forms, loved to sing and whistle to the music of “Tom Jones” and “Lou Rawls” along with snapping his fingers to the melody. Alonzo had a beautiful smile and when he laughed it would make you laugh as well, he would just get all choke up with laughter.

Our families will truly miss Alonzo Willie Robert Cavins Sr. for being on this earth with us and may God bless him and keep him forever and ever Amen. Love you Daddy……
