IRVINGTON—Mitchell Julian “Jay” Alga Jr. of Irvington passed away unexpectedly on June 11, 2023, at the age of 65.

Jay will be dearly missed.

A celebration of his life will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, June 23, at Grace Episcopal Church, of which he was a member, 303 South Main Street, Kilmarnock. Reception to follow.
