SIEGEL, Alvin

Dr Alvin Paul Siegel, 86, passed away peacefully on November 17, 2021, at his home with his family. Alvin was born June 20, 1935 in Atlanta, Georgia, and attended Grady and Northside High Schools. He then attended and graduated from Emory University. During his youth he was a camp counselor at Camp Blue Star and was also known to teach ballroom dancing for which he was often referred to as “Little Freddy” (Astaire). He then attended the University of Pittsburgh dental school and graduated in 1960. In Pittsburgh, he met the love of his life, Dorene Stein; they would have celebrated their 62nd birthday in December. After dental school, Alvin served as a lieutenant in the United States Navy, stationed in Key West, Florida, where he proudly accepted the “Most Unseaworthy” award after a fishing trip. In 1962, he returned to Atlanta and opened his dental practice. Alvin was a member of many civic and professional organizations, none more important to him than the Alpha Omega International dental fraternity, for which he served as the former Atlanta chapter president. Alvin is survived by his devoted and adoring wife Dorene, and his 3 children Robyn (Mark) Clark, Halli (Michael) Jones and Harris (Gayle). He was also Britni Ashkinazy’s most beloved grandfather; Ryan (Joy) Jones; Marlee Jones; and Lauren, Ashlely and Meredith Siegel. Alvin brought a lot of laughs and joy to those around him through his love of magic, hypnosis and his art of telling jokes. The funeral service will be held at Crestlawn Memorial Park, 2000 Marietta Boulevard NW, Atlanta, GA 30318, on Friday, November 19 at 3:30 p.m., with Rabbi Ron Segal as officiant. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to LDBF for Parkinson’s disease or to the Parkinson Foundation. The funeral will be broadcast live.
