In 2019 Alfonzo wanted a Fresh Start so he relocated to Greenville, NC. He was a people person and he enjoyed helping others. So much so he could sell water to a well. He got his name “Smiley” because no matter how mad or happy he got he was always smiling showing his teeth. Ever the enthusiast, Alfonzo displayed a passion for exploring his interests at an early age, whether it was a ten-speed bicycle around the neighborhood block or a HAYABUSA weaving through congestion on I-95. If it had wheels, he was getting on it and going fast as possible. He was introduced to the Bike World by Charles Edward AKA “Lonely” and known as “Smiley”. He was a member of the Liberty Riders Motorcycle Team, shortly after joining them he started his own Bike Team “L4L (Liberty For Life). The team was put together with friend and families. He sponsored numerous community services events such as, car washes, food give away and Christmas toy drives. Smiley decided to “take it up a notch” and joined Wheels of Soul MC and loved every minute of it. Rain, Sleet or Snow he was on his bike. It was in the Bike World where he met his lovely wife Monica.
