Alfred was born in Scott NY to Gaius and Austina Coon on 21 September 1936. He went to high school at Homer Central and graduated in 1955. He worked at Brockway Motor Trucks for 17 years and the balance of his career as a Certified Welder for Regan-Riter Boiler Works. He was an avid sportsman who enjoyed Shooting Sports, Hunting, Trapping, and most of all, Fishing. If you launched your boat at the Town of Scott Park you met Alfred; he volunteered his time collecting fees, inspecting for invasive species, and assisting boaters. He was very proud of the 9-point buck he took this year.
