Alfred "Sweet Pea" Cabin, Jr., departed this life on Monday, September 21, 2015. Born on April 8, 1936 in Austin, Texas, he was the youngest child of Alfred Cabin, Sr. and Julia Owens Cabin.

Many believe he was called "Sweet Pea" after his birth month flower, however he was affectionately given this name by his family due to his inquisitive and rambunctious personality being similar to the cute, little baby in the Popeye comic. As a natural athlete, Alfred excelled in any sport in which he participated. Most childhood friends remember his talent on the court serving as the captain of the 1954 Original L. C. Anderson High School Basketball Team. Others remember him shining on the diamond - playing baseball while serving in the United States Marines Corps and playing for the South Texas Negro League (Regional Negro League Affiliation).

Alfred was an entrepreneur who owned and operated many Austin establishments such as the ABC House of Music, Cabin's Janitorial and Window Service, C-U-Later Bar and Grill, Al's Place in Kingsville and the Blue Monday in Corpus Christi. Being an avid music lover, he created Sweet Pea Production promoting various soul and R&B performers hosting musical shows across Texas and DJ-ed for various radio stations and events. Alfred lived life to the fullest, spending time with family and friends, traveling, attending celebration and sporting events, and rooting for his favorite teams, the Washington Redskins and whoever was playing the Dallas Cowboys.

Alfred leaves behind many priceless memories for his family and friends to cherish. In addition to his parents, he was proceeded in death by his four brothers, Alexander, Daniel, Frank and Sandy and his daughter, Tracy. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Novella, and their daughters: Tiffany and Julia, his daughters: Wanda, Mia and Dana, his grandchildren: Tiwana, Reginald, Tesa, Bre, D'Angelo, Savannah and Kay, great-grandchildren: X'Avier, Ameir, Khalib, Cierra, Daveon and Anijah, a host of cousins, sibling-in-laws, nephews, nieces and many friends.

This truly remarkable man and sports fanatic will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him – Go, Redskins!
