CONANT, Alvin E. - of Fenton, MI, and Punta Gorda FL, slipped from the bonds of earth and marched into heaven at age 91 on March 14, 2018. Cremation has taken place and the services will be private for the family.

Alvin was born in Flint, Michigan on October 17, 1926. As a boy he had one of the largest paper routes in the Flint area. Alvin graduated from Flint Central High School, after which he enrolled at GMI and worked at Buick Motor Division for 35 years.

His many activities and hobbies included: golf, fishing, boating, and water sports. He enjoyed woodworking, including making custom pipes and tobacco mixes to sell at charity fundraisers for GCARC.
