Obituary

Alvis James Schoolfield, son of the late Frank Schoolfield and Cora Wilson Robinson, was born on January 25, 1958 in Pocomoke City, Maryland. He departed this life on August 28, 2020 at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Maryland.

β€œAl,” as he was affectionately known, attended the public schools of Worcester County in Maryland and Broward County in Florida. After completing school, he set his sights on becoming a hard worker and advancing with every opportunity he was presented. His passion was masonry and he was good at it.

Even though he loved working, his greatest love was for his family and friends. Al would do whatever he could do to help any of his family. In his leisure, he enjoyed fishing and cooking. He could always be found cooking on the grill or stove; he truly loved cooking for everyone. Al was loved by so many people. He will be remembered as a loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle, nephew, and friend.

Al leaves to mourn: his wife, Vivian Schoolfield; six children, Tameka Fletcher, Nikisha M. Deshields, Brianna Schoolfield, Anita Ballard, Terrell Hayman, and Dwayne Hayman; sixteen grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; two sisters, Denise Schoolfield and Amber Schoolfield; four brothers, George L. (Clay) Robinson, Ollie Robinson, Franklin (Rosa) Harmon, and Larry (Margaret) Holden; one uncle, Woodrow (Denise) Wilson, Jr.; five aunts, Janie M. (Frances) Christopher, Mae C. (Michael) Palmer, Deborah Taylor, Vickie Wilson, and Peggy (Anthony) Dickerson; special cousin who was like a sister, Tammy Yarns; two aunts-in-law, Cordelia Wilson and Kathy Grant Burch; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and a special cousin, Barbara Collins Schoolfield.

    Notes
    In the light of the evolving situation with COVID-19 virus, we are making adjustments to adapt to the current health emergency. In order to reduce the spread of the virus in our community, we are limiting the public’s access to our facility. We will continue to serve our families with the utmost dignity, as well as maintain the safety guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Cooper & Humbles Funeral Co., Inc. will comply and hold all services private until further notice. We will not have any public viewings in our facility. In an effort to accommodate family and friends, we are posting photos and the funeral/graveside service video of your loved ones on their respective Book of Memory pages on our website, www.cooperandhumbles.com. This will allow you to have a lasting memory picture and attend the service virtually. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time and as soon as this matter is resolved, we will resume our normal practices.
