The most we loved about Alton was his kind and generous attitude. He stood by our side in good times and bad. He was a father figure to us as well as a loving brother. He always talked to us about investing money and save some for a rainy day. He accomplished majority of his goals in life,but there was one goal we all knew he didn't reach was the purchase of his large boat and jet skis  to enjoy  with family and friends. I will say that Alton is one of our greatest blessing. So rest in peace for one day we will meet again.                 

He was proceeded in death by his Father Detroit Powell,his brother Kevin Baker, Mother in law Loretta Wilhoite,    Father in law Jesse Wilhoite. Two brother in laws Jesse jr Wilhoite,and Michael Wilhoite  and one sister  in law Victoria Brooks.
