Alfred Stephen Carey III, 75, of Maynard, passed of natural causes on June 3rd, 2019. He was devoted to his family and a staunch protector of felines. He was preceded by his parents, Alfred and Helen, his wife of 40 years Joyce, and his fur babies Cornflake, Cornfake (Boy Dude), Girly Meow, Marcus, Juliette, Brutus and Sabrina. He is survived by his siblings Carolyn, Ellen, Katy, Maryanne, Norice and Sean, his two sons Michael and Stephen, their spouses Aliona and Winnie, grandchildren Jordan, Nolan, Alfred and Eleonora, several nieces and nephews as well as his constant companions Earl, Elvira and Handsome.

Al grew up in Maynard on Powdermill Rd among an extremely large extended family. He proudly served 4 years in the Air Force during the Vietnam War before returning to Maynard, marrying Joyce and beginning his own family. His career extended over 2 decades at Digital Equipment Corporation before going to work at Sams Club for several years.

His pastimes included target pistol shooting, where he served for many years on the Maynard Rod and Gun Rifle and Pistol Committee. He enjoyed deep sea fishing, watching football, food, crossword puzzles, politics, telling stories, and in his later years, complaining. Al deeply loved his family, his hometown Maynard and his country. He was a bedrock for his family and will be missed greatly.

I extend my heartfelt sympathy to Steve's family. I know he will be sorely missed and fondly remembered for his dedication and good spirit. You can find great comfort in the hope for the future present in the bible. At Isaiah 25: 8, the Bible promises a time when God “will swallow up death forever.” Also, Acts 24:15 boldly states, "there is going to be a resurrection." The resurrection this verse talks about will give us the opportunity to see our lost loved ones again on Earth. It is comforting to know that one day we could all reunite with Steve!

I lived next to the Carey family for many many years. So many fond memories of those days. I can remember riding bikes with Steve around the circle at lunds. I will never forget those days. It was the best neighborhood anywhere. He hung around with my Uncle Ed and one time they took a rifle my father brought home from the service. It had no firing pin and my mother told them to be careful. Well Steve feel in the back yard and cut his knee. They came in the house and told my mother Ed had shot him. They were always pulling stunts like this. RIP Steve. You will be missed.

I have the fondest memories of Stevie when he came to Portland (for work, I think) and stayed with us. As the youngest of four, I was the only one still living at home. Ours was not a particularly happy home; I envision it in drab tones with a sad pall hanging over it. As you might imagine, the presence of big, beautiful Stevie changed all that. He brought laughter and light; he exuded goodness and joy and his lust for life was infectious. He’d come home from work and we’d talk and laugh. Often, he would take me out to nice dinners, just the two of us, and let me order whatever I wanted, quite the thrill for a fairly unworldly high school girl. He was generous, considerate, kind and very intuitive. The last time I spoke with him he was at Easter dinner with various family members including my daughter, Laura. Stevie and Laura enjoyed a bottle of champagne and had a wonderful time; she appreciated his special company just like I had. He truly was a great gift to all who had the privilege of knowing him. Thank you, beloved Orthocousin and family patriarch. The poker game in heaven just got even better!
