He was born August 16, 1958 to (late) Wilfred and Helen Juenger, who resides at Freeburg Care Center.
In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by his father-in-law Edward Schott and sister-in-law Leslie Schott.
He is survived by his loving wife, Lisa (Schott) Juenger, whom he married on June 12, 1982 at St. Agatha’s Catholic Church. Also surviving are his three children: Jonathan ‘John’ Juenger of Fairview Heights, Joshua (Linda) Juenger of Trenton, and Trisha (Bryce) Karban of Waterloo. Grandkids: Charlotte & Cole Juenger, Caleb, Carleigh & Cadence Juenger. Siblings: Linda (Harry) Meyer of Waterloo and Dennis (Tina) Juenger of St. Francis, KS. He was loved by a large extended family.
Alvin was adored by his grandchildren and loved taking them on tractor and skid steer rides, showing them all around the farm, and giving them ice cream. His smile was contagious and he didn’t know a stranger, partially because you could always find him wearing his ‘go to’ work shirt from Gateway Co Packing and enjoying a nice Milwaukee’s Best Light.
He worked at the foundry prior to being the Maintenance Supervisor at Gateway Co Packing. He was a member of St. Agatha’s Catholic Church and St. Clair County Farm Bureau.
So in the words of Alvin, “I’m fine and dandy, like cotton candy.”
