Mourning Edward Lee Alford, Jr. ("Ace")

December 10, 1957 – March 8, 2023

Our family has lost another treasured member, Edward Lee Alford, Jr. (“Ace”).

March 8, 2023 Ace peacefully entered eternal rest at the OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, OK at the age of 65.

He was born December 10, 1957, in Wewoka, Oklahoma to Edward Lee Alford, Sr. and Lee Ann (Smith) Alford. He was the fourth of eight siblings. He graduated in 1976 from Wewoka High School and attended Seminole State College and Langston University on basketball scholarships.

Ace was a devoted and avid Wewoka Tiger and OSU Cowboy fan. He lived and bled the orange and black. He enjoyed going to casinos, playing dominos and cards, listening to music (old school R&B). Stephanie Mills and Earth, Wind and Fire were his favorites.
