He was born December 23, 1944 in Houston to John and Billie Jean (Mabry) Alford. John was a graduate of Spring Branch High School and attended the University of Houston. He worked in the family’s business, Alford Manufacturing in The Heights. On July 1, 1978, he married Pamela Clepper. In 1979, John and Pam moved to Brenham and here, he established Brentex Construction.
John enjoyed traveling with his family. Visits to his family’s farm in Swiss Alp were especially memorable. He could always share a story and talk to anyone, but was also very opinionated. He was an outdoorsman and survivalist. Hunting and fishing trips were carefully planned, making sure everyone had what could be needed. John was an avid NASCAR and Astros fan.
