Victor Alvarez, 74, of Point Pleasant, formerly of Hoboken NJ, passed away on October 19, 2020.
Born to Aura and Juan Alvarez on January 10, 1946 in NYC, Victor grew up in Hoboken, graduated from Hoboken High School, and then served in the U.S. Army. After returning home from the Army, Victor met the love of his life, Geraldine Alvarez (nee Benetatos) and they shared 49 years together building their family and raising their son.
Called to the dance floor wherever rock and roll or blues were playing, Victor and Geraldine loved to travel and go camping. Victor was also an active member and officer of the Hoboken Elks Lodge no.74 and member of the Hoboken American Legion post 107. Victor never passed up an opportunity to be on the water and could be found fishing and enjoying catching Yankee games. After retiring from New Jersey Transit as a railroad bridge inspector he moved to Point Pleasant to be closer to the ocean.
Victor joins his beloved Geraldine, his dear sister, Diana Alvarez, and his loving parents in the hearts of his family. His memory will be honored by his loving son, Jason Alvarez and his wife Vicki, his dear siblings Martha Seickendick, Sylvia Engelhardt, and Lucy Alvarez, Danny Alvarez and his wife Dolly, John Alvarez and his wife Taryn, and Jimmy Alvarez and his wife Wendy and many loved nephews and nieces.
