(Pete) William J Alvey
William J. “Pete” Alvey passed away peacefully, on Wednesday, November 3, at his home in St. George, Utah, of Congestive Heart Failure. He was born December 9, 1951 in Panguitch, Utah to Freeman Jay Alvey, and LaDean Katherine Francisco Alvey. He had a happy childhood with his cousins Becky and Vance as they ran around the hills of Henrieville, but it was short lived as his father left the family, and his mother died when Pete was only 9 years old. He went to live with his aunt Roma in Salt Lake City until the age of 15 when he went to live with his Aunt Lola and her family in Hurricane, Utah.
He Married Deborah Jean Bundy in the St. George, Temple on his Birthday, December 9, 1983 and they have been happily married for 38 years. Pete has had some challenges and disabilities in life, but he never let that stop him. He loved people and had many friends who helped him learn how to live independently, and be responsible for himself.
Pete worked at St.George Steel for 35 years, and worked nights at several places as a security guard, most recently at the St. George Institute of Religion which he loved. Pete was very involved with the Special Olympics and received the Prestigious “Bill Sackter” Award. An Award given to one person in the United States every year who demonstrates service to other individuals with disabilities, and has progressed over the years to become a part of the community he lives and works in. Pete was proud of the many medals that he won participating in Special Olympics, but nothing made him more proud than being made an honorary member of the St. George Lions Club. He took it very seriously, and enjoyed working at the Lions Dixie Round-Up for many years. Pete was an example of love and kindness to all who knew him, and he will be greatly missed.
He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and enjoyed being a Home Teacher and working in the St. George Temple. He is survived by his Wife Deborah Jean Alvey, of St. George, and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Funeral Services will be held Saturday, November 13, 2021 at the St. George 5th Ward Building, 166 South Main. Friends may call prior to the funeral from 9:30 to 11:00 at the same location.
Interment will take place in the Tonaquint Cemetery.
Arrangements are made under the direction of Hughes Mortuary, 1037 East 700 South, St.
George, Utah 435-674-5000.

Pete is quite the guy. From scooters to motorcycles. Pete was part of our group of friends from the early 80s. Quite a fun time. Then we all got married or just moved on. Fantastic job Pete!

William (Pete) will be missed as he has been a great example of kindness and service for many years. He was a great "caretaker" of the St. George Institute building for many years and would often exclaim, "I don't sleep well at nights unless I know the Institute is locked and secured." Our thoughts and prayers go to his loving wife Deborah and to the extended family at this time.
