In 1969, Carl joined the Air Force and the little family was off to see the world. During their first overseas assignment, their second child was born, Timothy. The family loved traveling together. No matter where the Air Force sent them, Alyce was always a big part of the Christian Community and would volunteer her services for whatever was needed. Alyce served in the U.S. Government Civil Service as an Administrative Assistant for 30 years. Alyce was a current member of the First United Methodist Church of Melbourne.
