Enrique was the son of one of El Salvador's ruling families. He was intelligent, charismatic and wealthy. His mother was surnamed Córdova.
After a frustrated attempt to be a Salvadoran "New Dealer," attempting to implement agrarian reform as El Salvador's minister of agriculture and cattle raising, Álvarez dramatically changed course and joined the Democratic Revolutionary Front (Frente Democrático Revolucionário or FDR).
In November, 1980 he was kidnapped and murdered together with other directors of the FDR by "Brígada Anticomunista Maximiliano Hernández Martínez" an extreme-right wing group.
