Alvin Bray, the son of the late Earl Henderson and Elsie Mae Bray, was born on May 18, 1965 in Norfolk, Virginia. He transitioned to his heavenly home on January 6, 2021 after a long illness.

Alvin graduated from Mauri High School in 1983. He was a hardworking man and was most recently employed as a site manager and equipment operator at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard for the past 13 years.

Alvin loved sports and was a fan of the LA Lakers and the Los Vegas Raiders. He enjoyed his family and particularly loved spending time with his grandkids. He was a faithful, tithing member of the Believer’s House Worldwide Ministries in Norfolk, VA.

Alvin married Felicia Dixon and from that union two daughters were born, Tiara and Shalya.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Earl and Elsie and his father-in law, Fred Dixon. Alvin leaves to cherish his memory: his wife Felicia; his brothers Kenny and Calvin (Tanya); daughters Tiara Dixon Davis (Keith) and Shayla Dixon; his four grandchildren, Alasia Armani, D’Niya Alexandria, DeMarion Zion, Elliot Jamar; and four great-grandchildren Cherish Serenity, Makaylaa Serenity, DaShaun Dillion and Mariah Armani; and two nieces Kimberly Renee and Brianna Nicole, one nephew Kenneth Dominque; and a host of in-laws that include his mother-in-law, Paulette Dixon, and his closest friend Melvin Powers.
