How many of us had his phone # in our phone....?" The answer to that is hundreds and hundreds and hundreds... Elder was a pillar of this island. Rest in peace Elder and thank you for everything you gave to this island and community.

The Caye Caulker Village Council joins the San Pedro Community in extending condolences to the Alvarez family, immediate family and friends on the untimely passing of Mr. Elder. He was well known to the Caye Caulker Community. May he sleep in perfect peace.

San Pedro Town Council
It is with heavy heart that Mayor Gualberto "Wally" Nunez and Councillors extend heartfelt condolences to the Alvarez family on the untimely passing of a loving father, brother, uncle and friend Elder Alvarez.

Elder Alvarez was an essential part of the island as he served San Pedro as a linesman lead-hand at BEL (Belize Electricity Limited) for over three decades.

The San Pedro Town Council sends prayers to the family to find comfort, strength and courage in these difficult times. May he rest in eternal peace and rise in glory.

San Pedro Sun
The community of San Pedro Town is mourning the death of a beloved resident, Elder Alvarez, who passed away on Monday, November 1st. Alvarez affectionately considered the 'light of the island,' worked for three decades with Belize Electricity Limited (BEL), and always ensured that island electricity issues were quickly addressed, whether due to natural disasters or technical hurdles. He will be dearly missed, and The San Pedro Sun extends its deepest condolences to his family and friends.

Many acquaintances in San Pedro and Caye Caulker remember relying on Alvarez when there were issues with power on the islands. "He was always on top of his game; he is irreplaceable both for the community and BEL," said an emotional friend. Alvarez also touched the sports community, and the San Pedro Pirates FC are saddened by the passing of their dear friend. The club posted that Alvarez would ensure that electricity was available to light the sandy field and have the game broadcasted on Reef Radio back in the days before Ambergris Stadium. Local authorities in San Pedro and Caye Caulker, along with Area Representative the Honourable Andre Perez, send their condolences to his family during this difficult time. The Belize Energy Workers Union also stated how they are affected by the loss of whom they call a brother. Alvarez's death comes just days after the passing of his wife Delva Corina, adding shock and heartbreak to already mourning family and friends. They are survived by their teenage daughter Kahlen.

One of the times Alvarez showed his dedication to work and community was after Hurricane Earl on August 4, 2016. Just hours after the devastating hurricane left the island without electricity, Alvarez and his crew wasted no time and went to work. With numerous power lines down, broken trees, and snapped cables, the BEL team worked hard to repair and speedily provide service. Although it was not easy, power was restored in some subdivisions just hours after the passing of the storm. In downtown San Pedro, power was restored by 11PM the same day, and the following day power was wholly restored to the island. The community of San Pedro was amazed at how BEL managed to return electricity in such a short period, especially considering the impact of Hurricane Earl. All that work was thanks to Alvarez and his team, who tirelessly brought back power to all San Pedranos.

Hon. Andre Perez joins the Alvarez/Guerrero family and friends with thoughts of comfort in helping them get over the immense void left behind by the loss of Elder Alvarez.

A beautiful soul, full of love and faith, ascended to heaven, away from us, but closer to God, leaving loneliness and sadness.

May he rest in peace and rise in glory!

San Pedro lost a great person!
I had the privilege of working with Elder during our NEMO meetings especially when we were activated. He always was on top of his game - a reliable and responsible individual! Always a happy spirit!
We spoke when you were working at the new Madisco location a few weeks ago - ran a two jokes; but never knew it would have been our last chat!
San Pedro will surely miss you Elder. My sincerest condolences to your entire family, especially to your daughter, parents and as well as the BEL family! RIP Elder!
