Obituary for Alvin Vigil

Alvin Vigil, of Lafayette, Oregon, died peacefully in his home on April 12, 2019 with family by his side. He was 75.
Alvin was born to parents Fidel and Antonia (Ascencion) Vigil on March 1, 1944, in Seguin, Texas. Alvin was married to Maria (Montelongo) for 53 years. He is survived by his children Alvin Jr. (Seattle, WA), Ricardo (Clackamas, OR), Rachel Vigil Meidinger (Sherwood, OR) and Adelina Vigil Salinas (Flagstaff, AZ). He had 7 brothers and 3 sisters, which include Fidel Jr., Cande, Louis, Reynaldo, Robert (who preceded him in death), Betty, Carmen, Ruben, Ernesto and Ester; he also had 5 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
Alvin’s early adulthood was that of a migrant farm worker which took him from Texas to Washington and finally settling in Oregon where he established his life with family and friends. Alvin worked in the lumber industry for over 30 years in Sheridan until he moved onto custodial work for the McMinnville and Dayton School Districts until his semi-retirement in late 2018.
Alvin had a strong Catholic faith. He was an avid member of Lafayette’s Our Lady of Guadalupe Trappist Abbey and attended St. James Catholic Church. Alvin not only enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren, but also in the outdoors hunting, fishing and camping. He loved to take long scenic drives to the Oregon coast with his fishing gear in hand. His kindness, his respect and his willingness to help others will always be remembered.
The family will have a rosary on Friday, April 26 at 6:00 PM at Macy & Son Funeral Home in McMinnville located at 135 NE Evans St., with a memorial service to be held on Saturday, April 27 at 1:00 PM at St. James Catholic Church. A burial and a reception for friends and family will follow.
