Herbert Alston

May 10, 1936 – June 21, 2022

Herbert Alston, 86, of Sumter, South Carolina went to sleep on Tuesday, June 21, 2022 at Chippenham Hospital.
Herbert was born to Samuel Alston and Margaret McLeod on May 10, 1936. He came to Richmond, Virginia in the early 1950’s….who knew a few years later he would find the love of his life and marry Estelle Hammond on Aug 31,1959. Together they have three children, Keith Alston, Kevin Alston (wife Tanya), and Kathy Alston; one grandson John Scipio; and two surviving sisters, Edna Rembert of North Carolina and Shirley Lokey of Philadelphia, PA.
As a young man, Herbert began studying the Bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses and on Feb 1,1970, he along with his wife, Estelle, dedicated their lives to Jehovah God at Peabody Middle School in Petersburg, Virginia. As his love for Jehovah grew, one of his greatest joys was serving the Christian Congregation as an overseer at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses for more than 40 years. Although he is sleeping, he will be greatly missed until Jesus’ prophecy at John 5:28, 29 is fulfilled.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 9, 2022 at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 5720 Swanson Road, Richmond, VA 23225.
The services will be streamed on Zoom. The family asks all who attend to please where a mask. Thank You!
