Dedicated to the memory of
Alfred Anthony Flores, Jr. 12-19-90 to 04-03-09
Alfred gave his father, Fred A. Flores, the idea of starting the Veterans Day parade in the San Fernando Valley, so veterans and their families would not have to drive far for a parade (Long Beach, the other closest Veterans Day parade).
Alfred will be missed dearly.
