Alvin Polk Sr. Obituary

Alvin Bradley Polk, Sr. 84, transitioned on Tuesday, December 19, 2023 in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Born in Jeanerette, Louisiana on December 20, 1938, to George Polk (Sr.) and Lula Mae Bradley. Alvin was raised in Jeanerette, Louisiana where he attended Jeanerette High School. Following his graduation from Jeanerette High in 1961, Alvin later entered the U.S. Army and served between 1962 and 1982. He last served as a Medical Lab Specialist for the USA Meddac at Weed US Army Community Hospital in the Vietnam War. During his time of service he ultimately received the Bronze Star Medal, Joint Services Commendation Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnam Gallantry Cross w/Palm Unit Citation, and a host of other decorations before being honorably discharged on March 20, 1982. After leaving the Army, Alvin worked for Welsh Hospital in Welsh, Louisiana for many years.

He was a hard worker, with an infectious laugh, and a knack for telling a good story. He loved to watch western movies, listen to old blues music, watch sports, and enjoyed spending time at the casino. Although his passing now leaves a void in the lives of his friends and family it would be Alvin’s hope that any sadness is brief, and that soon enough we will remember only the joy, love, humor, and happiness he brought to us all.

Alvin is preceded in death by his mother and step-father, Lula Mae and Bill Robinson; father George Polk (Sr.); daughter Kimberly Polk. Those left to cherish Alvin’s memory include his spouse Mary (Dianne) Polk daughter Tracy Polk, Casey Polk, Stacey Polk, Shae (Chris) Fountain; his son, Alvin (Yolanda) Polk (Jr.) Terrence Thorne; his brother, George (Linda) Polk (Jr); his sister, Donnella (Joe) Hardy; and a host of grandkids and great grand kids, nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.
