Alfred was born on May 8, 1920 in St. Anna to Frank and Margaret (Skaj) Molus. He married Eleanor Solarz on May 13, 1950 at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Opole. He worked on the family farm for his entire life until retiring in 1988. He also served on the Avon Township Board in the 1970s. Alfred was a member of Immaculate Conception in St. Anna. He was proud of his age but was prouder to be a veteran. He served in the Army during World War II and in 2015 Alfred had the honor of attending a Freedom Flight in Washington DC. Alfred deeply loved his family. He enjoyed spending time with his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and was always curious as to what everyone was doing. He enjoyed playing cards, sitting in the lawn chair, being outside, tinkering in the garage and telling war stories. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
Alfred is survived by his children, Patti (Charlie) Berscheid of Avon, Mary (Gerry) Heitzman of Holdingford, Brenda (Herb) Blonigen of Avon and Sherri (Brian) Sand of Albany; 10 grandchildren; and 4 great grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his parents; wife, Eleanor; daughter, Shirley; brother, George; sisters Genevieve Ganz and Lorraine Koska.
