*Another version of this obituary can be found through THIS link at  The text appears to match exactly, the only difference being that the Deseret News version has photos included.

As "Alf" died in the last 50 years, his death certificate will not become available until sometime around the year 2052.  When it is, I will post it here... if I am still around myself by then.  :)
