He was preceded in death by his loving mother and father; his sisters, Eva Mulligan Waller, Mary Mulligan Huggett, Camille Alley Hopkins, Florence Alley Crandall, and Kathy Alley Lancaster; and his brothers, Jack Mulligan and Bill Mulligan.
He is survived by his loving wife of 38 years, Barbara Ann Alley; his sisters, Teresa Alley Hall and Thelma Alley Dease, and his brother, William “Bubba” Alley.
He is also survived by his children, Geraldine Alley Berry (Bobby), Cynthia Alley, Christopher Alley and Charles J. Caton; eight grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and two expected grandchildren, 54 nieces and nephews, 54 great-nieces and -nephews, and many Christian friends.
Funeral arrangements were incomplete.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the building fund of Harvest Fellowship Baptist Church.
A special thanks to Riverside Hospice for their dedicated and loving support — Debbie Boyd and Shelia Beacham. The family will always be grateful to them.
