Alfred L. Emmons
Alfred L. Emmons married to Margie Jean Merryman for 71 years passed on November 9, 2019. Survived by Margie, son Henry, daughter Diane and son-in-law James Larsen as well as grandchildren Steve Larsen, Eric and Julia Larsen and Jenny Larsen. Al was great grandfather (GG Owl) to Nicholas Larsen, Riley Larsen, James Larsen, May Larsen and Abigail Larsen.
Al was born February 3, 1929 in Tulsa, OK. He was an enrolled, voting member of the Cherokee Nation. Al moved with his parents to Richland, WA and graduated from Columbia High School in 1947. He worked in the Hanford areas and for General Electric with whom he transferred to San Jose, CA in 1966. Al returned to a Washington state in 1969 to administer the Personnel office for Intalco Aluminum Company in Ferndale WA, retiring from Intalco in 1987 and returning to the Tri-Cities in 1998.
Al will be remembered as dignified, circumspect, deliberate and determined. He will be missed dearly by those who had the pleasure of his quiet solid adherence. He was very much appreciated and loved as a son, husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. May he Rest In Peace.
I think of both of you every time I drive past your old home here. What fun times we had with you and what a sense of humor and we appreciated Al’s friendship and his wisdom. Al certainly could keep us on our toes, with surprises. A certain little boy was very impressed by “Owl” who obviously loved being with our & others children. A few years ago, we were quite honored when the two of you stopped by just to check on us. So many memories! My sympathy to you Margie & all your family.
Margie ,lots of great memories.All the very best to you and family. Harry Allison
