Herbert Kenton Alford Click for Condolences      Printable Version
1938 - 2024

Herbert Kenton AlfordHerbert Kenton Alford passed peacefully at home Feb. 26, 2024. He was born 86 years ago, to the day, in Mason County at home.

Herbert loved spending time with his extensive family and many friends sharing stories of his youth, his latest gardening efforts, and world travels. He enjoyed camping, fishing, and spoiling his pride and joy, his only grandchild.

Like most Alford men, Herbert joined the service as a Marine where he applied his appreciation of honor and hard work. While in the Marines, he also began his life-long passion for international travel.

Herbert earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees at Marshall University and taught science to junior high students for 32 years. He always emphasized the importance of a solid education to both his daughter and granddaughter.

He married Reda Gibson in 1965, and they adopted Tina in 1971.

He’s survived by his wife Reda; daughter, Tina (Andy) Williams; his pride and joy, Madison (Austin) Braddock; and brother, Forrest Alford and a multitude of nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Early and Missouri Alford and brothers Thomas; Early Wine “Junior”; Richard “Dick”; Milton “Stub”; Bill; Paul; Wendell; and sisters Mabel Barboe; Audrey Arthur; Eva “Tootle” Holley; Charlene Null; and Lois “Perk” Davis.

The family would like to acknowledge the devoted care of Rita Blackwell, a friend and neighbor who has been a constant blessing to the Alford family and special thank you to his caregiver, Caeley Cremeans.

Funeral service will be at 1 p.m. Thursday, February 29, 2024 at Wallace Funeral Home, Milton. Burial will follow in Forest Memorial Park, Milton with military honors conducted by American Legion Post 139. Friends may visit from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, February 28, 2024 at Wallace Funeral Home, Milton.

I remember going camping up at the lake with everyone. It was always fun and you would always learn something from Herbie

Herbert was my great uncle and a brother to my grandfather Earl Wine Alford. He was also my science teacher in school at Milton Jr high. I have fond memories of him in school. My condolences to his family. May he rest in peace.
