Alfred graduated from Palmyra-Macedon High School in 1964, and Alfred College in 1966 before taking a job as a Bank Teller for Lincoln Rochester Bank in Rochester, NY and marrying his high school sweetheart Karen Rawson in 1969.

Alfred lived in Darien Center for the last 43 years, moving with his wife and daughters from Macedon to Darien in 1978 for his job with Manufacturers Hanover Corporation where he eventually rose to become Vice President and Director of Operations before he elected to take an early retirement. He was the Finance Chairman for Alexander Methodist Church for 8 years where he and his wife attended. In his spare time, Alfred enjoyed classic cars, snowmobiling, flying remote control (RC) planes, and traveling with his beautiful bride to see the country in their RV.

Alfred was an active part of the RC flying community, belonging to the RC Pulsers of WNY, RC Aircrafters of WNY, RC Gypsies, and the STARS (Southern Tier Aero Radio Society). Known for his ability to fix anything, he especially enjoyed the challenge of resurrecting planes that had crashed and given up for kindling, taking special pleasure in seeing them fly again.

Beloved husband of 52 years to Karen (Rawson) Westerman; loving father of Carrie (Myles) Schuster and Christine (Carmen Gerard “Jerry”) Scoppa; proud grandfather of Lucas and Trevor Scoppa. He is survived by his brother-in-law Kenneth (Carla) Rawson, and nephews and niece: Kevin, Kenneth Jr., and Erin.

Friends and relatives may celebrate his life at a memorial service to be held at Alexander United Methodist Church at 11:00am on Thursday, March 25, 2021.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent in his honor to the Alexander United Methodist Church Scholarship Fund or Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF.org).
