Lubbock leaders praise Caviel's commitment to community
Alfred Caviel Sr., who, along with his wife, ran Lubbock’s first black-owned pharmacy, died last week.
Caviel, who was 85, died Friday, and funeral services are planned for Thursday.
Even before he died, Caviel and his wife, Billie, created a legacy destined to make a permanent mark in Lubbock’s community, leaders said Tuesday evening.
“He was a good person — a loving, kind person — and he was a good businessman,” said Lubbock City Councilman Floyd Price.
