Alvin A. Volk
July 21, 1944 - January 2, 2024 

Alvin A. Volk, 79 Michigan City, Indiana, passed away Tuesday, January 2, 2024, at Aperion Care Arbors Nursing Home, Michigan City, Indiana, surrounded by family.

Funeral services will be held at 12:00 pm Tuesday, January 16, 2024 at Ott/Haverstock Funeral Chapel, 418 Washington St., Michigan City, IN with Rev. David Kime officiating. Private burial will take place in Greenwood Cemetery at a later date.  Visitation will be from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm Tuesday at the Ott/Haverstock Funeral Chapel.    

Alvin was born July 21, 1944, in Michigan City, Indiana to the late John and Gertrude (Sobieski) Volk. Surviving is a sister, Genevieve Allen, Florida; and several cousins.

Alvin was also preceded in death by brothers Daniel, James and Thomas Volk; and sister, Victoria Ann. 

He lived in Michigan City all his life. Alvin was employed at Majots Feed and Seed and he enjoyed doing yard work, watching westerns and Judge Judy.

Arbors had been his home for several years, while there the staff and residents fondly called him “Candy Man”. He could always be found with a chocolate bar and or an A & W Root Beer in hand, which he would share with others. Alvin was known for his quick wit, and his quick comebacks. He always had a kind word for others and was considerate of their feelings.

“Grief never ends...but it changes. It's a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, or a lack of faith. It is the price of love.”
