Alvis Devon Conley passed away Saturday, July 6, 2019 in Cleburne. He was born December 6, 1938 in Levelland, Texas to Violet Dorothy (Holley) and Robert C. Conley. He married Frances Ruth Robinson in 1960 and joined the Air Force in 1961, just weeks before his wife and child died. He had joined the service in order to get better medical coverage for Frances because she had heart issues, however he did not even make it through boot camp before she and Alvis Jr. passed away.
Alvis met Beverly DeMerritt in Iowa while in the Air Force on December 24, 1962 and they married just six weeks later on February 9, 1963. They both said that from the moment they met they knew they would marry. Apparently they wasted no time “getting hitched”. (Just 6 weeks later). He was a commercial truck driver. Alvis was also preceded in death by his parents and siblings, Verta Walker and Robert D. Conley.
Alvis and Beverly Conley had five children, sons, Steven Conley and wife Lorrae and John Conley and wife Susan; daughters, Melanie Golubinski and husband Mark, Sondria Robinson and husband Danny, and Cynthia Baxter and husband Brian; grandchildren, Mitch, Erica, Barrett, Jared, Brandon, Josh, Joe, Jordon, Jessica, Gloryanna, Rebecca, Joseph, Mercy, Cheyanna, Cornelius, Elisheva, Audria, Shaphan, Jeremiah, Patience and Clarissa; 18 great grandchildren; brothers, Derriel Conley, David Wayne Conley and wife Karen and Ronald Dean Conley and wife Karen; sister, Susan Wagler and husband Steve; and numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
