Louis S. Alves; loved music, socializing with colleagues


Louis Alves used music to express his passion for life.

The 33 year old played the piano, and went to every party with his own compact discs, including Metallica, Jimi Hendrix, Megadeth and The Doors.


He also loved to sing karaoke, The Providence Journal reported.

His favorite song to sing was "You May Be Right," by Billy Joel.

Alves also was passionate for his family. The house he bought in Lincoln seven years ago is less than a half mile from the house where he grew up, and where his parents still live.

When Alves was still in high school, he got a job playing Santa Claus at a local mall to earn extra money to buy gifts for his family, but he didn't tell them until years later.

Alves was a senior designer for Poly-Flex Circuits in Cranston, and helped develop medical products, including a device used to detect carpal-tunnel syndrome and a sensor that measures brain activity during surgery.


The funeral for Louis S. Alves, 33, of Hazel Street, Lincoln, will be held Saturday.

Born in Providence, a son of Luis F. and Maria (Sena) Alves, both of Lincoln, he was a lifelong resident of Lincoln.

Mr. Alves was a senior designer at Poly-Flex Circuits of Cranston for four years.

He graduated from Lincoln High School and the New England Institute of Technology, and received a bachelor's degree from Wentworth Institute.

He was communicant of St. Anthony Church, Pawtucket.

Besides his parents, he leaves a sister, Carla S. Alves, and a niece, Skyla J. Alves, both of Lincoln.

Buried at Mount St. Mary Cemetery, Pawtucket.
