Alvin Grier, Jr., age 95, of Alto, passed away on Wednesday, December 30, 2020.

Born on September 29, 1925, in Habersham County, he was a son of the late Alvin B. and Belle Armour Grier. Junior, as he was known to many, was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He loved getting together with his family for holidays and other celebrations. He was the life of the party! Junior is also known for his love of gardening and working with his mules. He greatly enjoyed driving his mule-drawn wagon in numerous parades in North Georgia, even winning several awards which he was so very proud of. He leaves behind a wealth of knowledge and wisdom that his family will treasure always.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers: A.M., Otis, Dillard “Bud”, Van, Garnett, Wiley, Lemuel, and Roy Grier and sister, Dorothy Ward.
