Mr. Alvin B. Conaway, age 90 of Georgetown, DE went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, May 25, 2018 with his family by his side.
Mr. Conaway was born in Laurel, DE on May 13, 1928 to the late Raymond L. and Verdie Elliott Conaway. In addition to his parents he is preceded in death by his wife of 60 years, Angie Conaway in 2007 as well as a step son, Robert M. Hurst Jr. in 2002 and a step granddaughter Ashley Hurst in 2017.
Alvin was a 1947 graduate of Laurel High School where he played football, and held the title of President of the FFA. The love of farming began as a young boy helping his parents on their farm and later in life founded his own farm, the ABC Farms, which consisted of poultry, grain and livestock. Even at the age of 90 he still didn’t want to call himself retired as he was always involved in the farming operation in some capacity. In 2017 he was named the Sussex County Farmer of The Year. He was a founding member of the Dagsboro Church of God and loved attending church, volunteering whenever he was able to help out and loved his church family. He was past Sunday School Superintendent and taught Sunday School for adults as well as children. Alvin was a fine example of a Christian man, family oriented and devoted to his family.
Alvin is survived by his wife of nine years, Ruth Conaway of Georgetown, DE; two children; Diane Conaway Rogers and her companion Bob Lingo of Georgetown, DE and Kenny Conaway and his wife Peggy of Georgetown, DE; a step-daughter, Alicia Renee` Stockwell and her husband Bruce of Port Richey, FL; a sister, Dorothy Mae Smith and her husband David of Bridgeville, DE and a brother, Granville Conaway and his wife Dorothy of Georgetown, DE. He also leaves behind four grandsons: Troy Rogers, Shawn Rogers, K.C. Conaway and Timmy Rogers; fourteen great grandchildren, two step-grandchildren and ten step great grandchildren. He is also survived by many extended family members and friends.
A funeral service and celebration of his life will be held at 12:00 PM on Friday, June 1, 2018 at the Dagsboro Church of God, 32224 DuPont Blvd, Dagsboro, DE 19939, where friends may call from 10 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. for a time of viewing and visitation.
