Services for Allan Alvarez Start Saturday

Services for Allan Alvarez, a 21-year-old Pierson High School graduate who died in a motorcycle accident in Shinnecock Hills on Thursday night, will be held over three days, starting Saturday night. 

Mr. Alvarez's family will hold visiting hours at the Yardley and Pino Funeral Home in East Hampton on Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m., and then on Sunday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. A funeral Mass will be said on Monday at St. Andrew's Catholic Church in Sag Harbor. Burial will follow. 

Cynthia Alvarez, his sister, asked those who come to pay their respects to dress casually. Her brother did not like to dress up, she said, adding that she will be wearing a T-shirt, jeans, and flip-flops. "And we want smiles. They can be wet and teary smiles but smiles nonetheless."
